Applied’s Engineering team is building the future of recruitment - helping teams hire the best person for the job regardless of their background. Approaching hiring from the behavioural science and data in the process and redesigning the hiring experience to put candidates first and focus on the skills that really matter in a role. The results: ?‍?    50% more women hired into tech roles through Applied ?    2-4x increase in attraction and selection of gender and ethnically diverse candidates ?    60% of candidates hired through Applied would have been overlooked in a traditional hiring process ??    9/10 average candidate experience rating In the past few years hundreds of thousands of candidates have applied through our platform to roles at Penguin Random House, Comic Relief, Buildkite, Wellcome Trust and HM Government. We’ve helped companies hire thousands of great people that would have been overlooked otherwise! Interested in joining us?Well we practice what we preach - it’d be weird if we didn’t use our own system to hire! So when you apply you won’t need a CV (because they don't work) instead you’ll answer a couple of work-sample questions (these are research-proven to be the most effective way to evaluate peoples skills). You can read more about how we like to treat candidates applying to jobs with us like humans (and get an insight into the process) here.

About Applied

Hiring (and being hired) is one of the most important things we do, but humans are frankly terrible at it. We look for the wrong things, we’re biased, and we don’t follow the data.

Applied is on a mission to help organisations hire the best person for the job, regardless of race, gender or background. Our platform helps teams manage their hiring process with more precision and less bias. Everything is measured so teams can understand what works and that allows them to constantly measure, improve and give candidates useful feedback!

We've proved that it's a better way to hire, for all involved.

We need a Full Stack Engineer to work within our Engineering team. We need teams who are user-driven, creative and want to leave the world just a little better than they found it.

This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of a fast growing, investor-backed start-up and be part of changing the way hiring is done on a global scale. You can read more about us in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch and New Scientist.
