Great recruiting requires effort
Before starting Greenhouse, I spent a couple months traveling around the country, talking with CEOs about the things that kept them up at night.
Recruiting was #1 on everyone's list. And the thing that struck me was that these folks knew how to fix the hiring problems that were hurting their companies. They just needed help implementing best practices and scaling them quickly.
So I launched Greenhouse with a single goal: Make companies great at hiring. The response has been phenomenal. As more and more organizations have moved to Greenhouse, insurmountable recruiting bottlenecks have vanished, and hiring departments have become the well-oiled machines they always knew they could be.
At Greenhouse, we have one yardstick: “Are we fixing the problem?”
To answer that question, I continue to travel around the country, talking with the CEOs of companies using Greenhouse. Like all good leaders, they still have things that keep them up at night. Happily, recruiting is no longer one of them.
To me, that's a dream come true.

I have been working at Greenhouse Software full-time (Less than a year)
- Product: Being in sales, and coming from a top company to work in the SaaS space, a great product is critical to success in my function. And Greenhouse has the best products in our space, that customers love working with so much that we have a 97% retention rate in our client base. I love talking Greenhouse!
- Leadership: I have worked with amazing leadership in the past and Greenhouse is no exception. Sales Management has the best interest of the Sales team, and full support while allowing autonomy. We also have access to the President and CEO on the floor to talk about the product, or a specific difficult prospect or sale - this is rare and highly valued.
- Ownership: High reward for hard work. This is not a place where you can coast. You are empowered to own your process, your prospective clients, your conversations, and all of your work. Most importantly, you're given all of the tools (work with top notch and high tech systems) to enable your success.

Advice to Management
- With exciting times coming up ahead, there can be more thought put into product launches and communication between all the parties and teams involved. We want to continue making our customers feel amazing and the best way to do this is be over-prepared for every conversation we are having. Otherwise, keep up the great work - this is an amazing company with a promising road ahead.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Greenhouse Software (San Francisco, CA) in December 2017.
Phone screen with recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager, take home assignment, and onsite interview with multiple people from related department, the department you are interviewing for, and the hiring manager of the department you are interviewing for. It’s exactly how it’s desrcibed in the other reviews- they’re being not hiding anything or throwing curveballs at you. Like their mission states, it’s aimed to be as transparent as possible so you know what you are getting into. Everyone at the company stood behind the idea of their product which was to make the candidate experience as pleasant as possible. Truly amazing and warm staff, made you feel welcome and valued.
