Overall Satisfaction with SeekOut

I am currently using SeekOut to identify niche software developers for next-gen Cloud Platform Product Development R&D teams. SeekOut has been an amazing tool to use for finding industry leaders in next and niche technologies, and in helping to find a very diverse and inclusive candidate pool. It has made my job much easier, as it allows me to not have to use so many tools to find the candidates quickly. Having the ability to view both LI and GitHub profile information in place is HUGE, not to mention being able to find the extremely valuable contact info. Not to mention the ability to create and run targeted campaigns and pull insight reports to educate my hiring managers on the market conditions. I would highly recommend this tool and look forward to future features to the platform.
  • Locate candidate information
  • Locate and identify diversified candidates
  • Provide Much need market information
  • Expand the amount of detail of the market talent pool
  • Allow for more Power filters for search
  • Provide a Boolean search library
  • SeekOut has helped reduce my search and contact rate for niche candidates from weeks to days.
  • With its ability to help me identify qualified diverse candidates, my diversity hire numbers by more than 84%.
The Account and Product support team have been great. THE have provided really good training sessions customized to my team's needs, and have responded very quickly to any technical issues my team has experienced (usually user error).
Having all of the different networks (LI, GitHub, Google, etc.) in one place for each candidate's profile has really helped to quickly qualify candidates for the technical roles I focus on daily.
Although LinkedIn has a huge number of candidates and a large number of data points, it does not provide data from multiple networks as SeekOut does, so doesn't paint a complete picture. Also, LI does not present the diversity numbers/candidates in an easily digestible format like SeekOut.

Do you think SeekOut delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with SeekOut's feature set?

Yes

Did SeekOut live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of SeekOut go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy SeekOut again?

Yes

I highly recommend SeekOut if you are looking for Diverse Software engineers with rare or specific skillsets in niche technologies. I don't think is necessary for roles like Project Management and Business Analysts style roles.
