Lever - Why Work With Us?

When Lever was founded in 2012, it was based on the early signs that something fundamental was changing in the way people thought about growth.

Scale is everything. Every company is racing to seize millions of users and billions of clicks, and to do so means scaling your employee base faster than previously imaginable.

But with that scale come intense organizational and hiring challenges. We saw it firsthand, as our peers in Silicon Valley were starting companies, bootstrapping teams, and pressing everyone they knew for referrals. Intrepid engineering managers were hacking together custom data dashboards to track their pipelines and analyze their interviewing processes. The top-of-mind issue was not only how to recruit, but also how to recruit the best.

Out of that environment, Lever was born. We want to give companies of the future a better way to form, grow, and sustain teams of talented people, so we set out to bring world-class design and engineering to bear on the challenge of growth.

We were lucky enough to incubate within one of Silicon Valley’s fastest growing companies and work side by side with their team of 30+ recruiters, where we became intimately familiar with the daily pains of their jobs. We learned that a recruiter’s toughest problem was building trust and fostering collaboration with internal stakeholders. It was a problem that no applicant tracking system (ATS) came close to solving.

Few ATSs consider key partners – leadership, hiring managers, and interviewers – to be first-class citizens, and they return the favor by never logging in. Not having the entire organization engaged in the hiring process acutely affects the productivity (and sanity) of the recruiting team.

This critical insight led us to design Lever with every stakeholder in mind. Lever empowers every person in the recruiting ecosystem, bridging the gap between recruiters and hiring managers. We’re reimagining how organizations think about growth, with talent and teamwork at the center. We’re injecting values we respect – collaboration, transparency, and humanity – into the software that will power the next generation of companies.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lever (United States)


    Talked to a recruiter, then did a fairly basic paired programming after I was moved on. After passing that, I was moved on to the virtual onsite which was able to be done over two days which was nice. It included a demo of the product, a deep dive into a previous project, paired programming, a mock code review, talk about career and then finally a talk with an engineering manager.

    Talk about a project you've worked on before and your team
