New tiered licensing program eases recruiter access and reduces tech talent search costs for SMBs

Finding tech talent is not merely for the enterprise – but a need felt by organizations large, medium and small,” said Sheeroy Desai, CEO. “It's a key requirement to remain competitive and our goal is to give everyone the recruiting tools they need.

Gild, which brings meritocracy to tech hiring through innovative recruiting technologies, today introduced new pricing options for its flagship product, Gild Source. The new licensing options expand Gild’s customer base beyond the enterprise, to now address the needs of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with more moderate or occasional tech hiring demands and budgets.

Starting today, Gild will offer pricing that allows recruiters at any size organization to purchase features and capabilities specific to their size, budget, and unique talent search needs. Gild’s Enterprise license will continue to offer the same high value and scalable customer support for companies with on-going, high quantity tech recruiting goals, while the new set of licensing options will open up Gild’s comprehensive database and recruiting solutions to smaller organizations with more short-term hiring needs.

The new licensing packages include:

  •     Basic: A month-to-month option ideal for organizations that have smaller hiring needs within a fixed geographic range.
  •     Standard: a month-to-month purchase plan with unlimited search and profile access that is ideal for organizations with fluctuating or short-term hiring needs.
  •     Preferred: a three-month package useful for recruiters at organizations with sizable, yet shorter-term, hiring needs requiring unlimited search and profile access.

“The ability to efficiently and intelligently find tech talent is not merely a preference for businesses – large, medium or small,” said Sheeroy Desai, CEO and co-founder, Gild. “It is a key requirement to remain competitive and our goal is to provide everyone the tools and technology to enable this.”

“Our customers asked and we listened,” added Desai. “I’ve been on the search-and-engage end of the developer recruiting process, and know that hiring needs and budgets differ – not only among companies – but even across organizational disciplines. So far, we’ve focused on enterprises with significant tech recruiting needs. Now, we’re expanding to address the needs of SMBs, so whether a company needs only one candidate for a single position – or 500 prospects year-after-year – organizations of all sizes will be able to find technically qualified candidates.”

Gild Source is powered by proprietary technology that scours the web for information on developers, including their public code and contributions to developer forums, and then utilizes patent-pending algorithms to score the skills of the millions of developers it finds. This lets companies move past the noise in today’s recruiting arenas and hire based on merit alone--finding developers who have proven, verified skills, regardless of SEO résumé keywords or social connections.

Gild has seen its user base increase by more than 900% since its launch in June 2012 and has seen similarly strong sales growth. Recruiting solutions by Gild – specifically Gild Source – are now used by over 65 enterprise companies, such as Rackspace, Red Hat, EMC, and American Eagle Outfitters.
