SpringRole, the job referral recommendation engine that makes it easier for employers to reach the best candidates before they start looking for jobs, is saving companies time and thousands of dollars as they add more than 20,000 passive candidates daily.
SpringRole recently helped Cargomatic, a Venice-based tech startup that pairs B2B shippers with commercial truck drivers, find a full-stack software engineer in less than a month. In just two weeks, the SpringRole community referred 184 candidates and three applied. Cargomatic was able to hire the developer in just three weeks for $1,000, when traditional recruiting methods typically take three months and cost more than $20,000.
“SpringRole goes far beyond a traditional job board or staffing agency. Not only was I able to have a strong online presence for less than traditional job postings; our open roles were in front of a huge network of people who are engaged! Everyone knows hires made from referrals are the best hires; now we can get referral quality hires from people outside of our personal networks,” said Jamie Bond, manager of talent acquisition at Cargomatic.
SpringRole, which crowdsources personal referrals by enabling people to refer within their own trusted network, has built in just seven months a social graph of 7.3 million passive candidates, those with existing jobs, by understanding how everyone is connected through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google and even the phone book. SpringRole motivates users to get their friends jobs by paying them up to $100 referral fee for each interview that is arranged.
Besides Cargomatic, SpringRole has also attracted such companies as Dollar Shave Club, LuxeValet, and Lucky Day among others, to help them find and place top talent.
SpringRole is a crowdsourced recruiting marketplace powered by referrals. It effectively and accurately drives engaged users to job postings and incentivizes users to refer their trusted friends, colleagues and peers. Many referrals arrive organically from social growth hacking initiatives. In addition, incentivized shares and ads on Google, Twitter, and Facebook drive traffic to the SpringRole website. From there, anyone can refer a friend or colleague and earn a commission. The company is backed by Science. Founded in 2014, SpringRole is based in Santa Monica, CA.
