Findem is the only tool in this category that allows you to find candidates using technical and intangible attributes in ways that traditional keyword matching does not.
Findem’s AI recruiting software helps companies find and hire great candidates from a diverse, latent talent pool across the world. Their goal is to help hiring managers find the perfect candidate for the roles they need to fill. Emphasis on “perfect candidate” because this system uses artificial intelligence to help you drill down on the exact candidate(s) that meets a plethora of your criteria no matter how numerous they may be.
The platform’s core offering involves planning/prepping the software according to your technical and social criteria for an ideal candidate. Findem will use this to provide applicants with, say, the technical qualifications you need, but also analyze them to see how well they might fit into your company’s work culture. Their tech can apply hundreds of different filters.
Further, shortlisted candidates can be engaged via automated responses. The end goal is to provide recruiters with a solid applicant tracking and hiring pipeline with analytical features to measure the performance of your recruiting campaign from search to hire.
Amongst the tools in this category, Findem’s recruiting process is one of the most interesting. They take a proactive approach to their process rather than the more traditional reactive approach. In most systems, the hiring process usually starts with posting applications on job boards and hoping for a response from a pool of candidates you would later have to sift through to get the best.
Findem, on the other hand, crawls through 100,000+ internal and public data sources (e.g from LinkedIn, GitHub, Kaggle, etc.) from around the world to give you a talent pool of over 750 million potential candidates — the largest candidate access for any recruiting platform. This makes them one of the best solutions for truly diverse and global hiring.
Innovation is another interesting aspect of this company. According to our research and a brief exchange with them, they have made a number of changes to their software in recent times including the addition of a funnel analytics dashboard. This lets hiring managers see what's working and what isn't at every stage of their talent funnel. Updates also tend to include new integration options to further streamline human resource management during and after hiring.
Notably, in mid-2022 they also improved the customization of their outreach messaging to candidates and upgraded the whole UI to make it more user-friendly.
Findem is not ideal for hourly or blue-collar workforce recruiting. The system sources candidates with some form of professional online presence and most hourly workers do not dedicate as much time to building their online profiles.

Findem integrates with some popular applicant tracking systems and recruiting software such as Bullhorn, Jobvite, SmartRecruiters, BambooHR, Greenhouse, Lever, and so on. They also integrate with Google Workspace.
Findem does not publicly disclose their pricing information. You will have to request a demo to see which plan best works for your company size and your operations.
Findem is a good fit for hiring managers and talent leads in companies with over 500 employees in any industries that are hiring for corporate roles— notably tech, CPG, life sciences. They also have a good track record with North American startups and hyper-growth companies.
Findem’s implementation process is pretty straightforward. You would first have to book a demo to get a plan that fits your business operations and size. At this point, a customer service manager (CSM) would be assigned to help you through your onboarding process. If you are switching from another recruiting platform, the CSM would help migrate your data so you never lose any of your previous candidate tracking data.
Findem provides a series of guides, articles, and infographics to help hiring managers stay on top of talent trends across the globe. They also host live seminars from time to time which features hiring experts from various industries. A catalog of all their past webinars can equally be found in their resource center.
Hariharan Kolam and Raghu Venkat co-founded Findem in 2019 after previously co-founding and running a software company in the content delivery network industry, called Instart. Their goal with Findem was to develop a platform that changes the traditional way hiring managers recruit, which is usually by searching based on a set of keywords that appear on user-defined resumes. Instead, the vision was to develop a recruitment tool that not only considers technical qualifications but also real-world intangible attributes. This was made possible via AI and deep analytics.
For a company that started barely five years ago, Findem has enjoyed considerable success in the AI recruiting industry. They have landed some huge customers like Adobe and RingCentral, and have raised about $37 million in two rounds of funding.
