GoodTime Hire emphasizes candidate ‘relationships’ over just ‘experience’. It uses Candidate Relationship Intelligence to automate coordination and personalize communication. It also delivers insightful interview and candidate data that you can act on to refine your process.
GoodTime is a specialized meetings tool with two products: GoodTime Hire (for interviews) and GoodTime Meet (for every other type of meeting). Both products are powered by what they refer to as the GoodTime Meeting Optimization Engine.
Designed for HR teams and recruiters, GoodTime Hire optimizes interview scheduling and helps you nurture candidate relationships through personalized experiences and insightful data. When scheduling interviews, GoodTime requests candidate availability and intelligently selects the best interviewers for that candidate based on common availability. It then sends customized invitations and relevant meeting links, and automatically handles rescheduling, if needed. GoodTime also manages interviewer training and allows hiring teams to capture valuable candidate feedback throughout the process.
When it comes to functionality, GoodTime has so much more to offer than just scheduling automation. You can track the training progress for interviewers, evenly divide the number of interviews among different interviewers, increase panel diversity, and get data-backed reports on meetings.
As Naomi, a recruiter at a mid-sized company puts it, “We are solving scheduling problems between the Coordinator and the Interviewers. I don't have to go into each calendar for each interviewer and check what times they are available - once I enter the availability shared by the candidate - GoodTime connects with Google Calendar & automatically brings up available and unavailable times in different colors. So I quickly know what is open and what is not. They also have templates you can create and customize, so no more trying to figure out what to say, It's all already there and ready to go!”
Besides interviews, GoodTime’s second product, GoodTime Meet, is a free-of-charge meeting scheduling tool built for hybrid and remote teams to coordinate meetings with colleagues, prospects or clients. It allows hosts to create templates for common meeting types, set parameters, manage video conferencing, define their availability, and customize communications. It also features a Chrome extension to make it even easier to share meeting links without leaving Chrome. Once a meeting link is shared, guests can schedule on their own terms through a simple interface. GoodTime Meet aligns your calendar with their availability and takes care of invitations.
If your business does not have a plan to grow headcount or replace key roles over the coming year, GoodTime Hire may not be a good investment for you. It can be more expensive than other solutions on the market due to its extensive feature set, so if you are on a tight budget it may not be a fit at your current stage. That said, it’s best to book a demo with them to get the exact pricing based on your team size.
GoodTime is used by over 300 companies including many notable ones such as Lattice, HubSpot, Pinterest, Patreon, Zoom, Spotify, Slack, and Quora.
GoodTime integrates with a bunch of calendars, applicant tracking systems, video conferencing tools, coding software, and other management tools. Some of the familiar names include Google Calendar, Office 365, Workday, Zoom, Slack, Greenhouse, and Lever.

There can be a lot to customize initially, making the learning curve for GoodTime higher than more prescriptive products. However, once everything is in place, day to day use is easy. To implement GoodTime Hire, you’ll be asked to provide some details about your company and their implementation team will contact you to guide you through the entire process. You can get started with GoodTime Meet for free, by simply signing up with your Google or Microsoft account.
GoodTime has many free resources such as blogs, eBooks, and webinars to help their customers make the most out of GoodTime. When you buy GoodTime, you’re also assigned a Customer Success Manager who helps with the implementation process and provides regular training. If further support is needed, you could reach out to them via email, live chat, or phone. They’re very quick to respond, sometimes in under three minutes.
If you have suggestions for improvement, you could also contact their customer support team about it. Matthew W, who works at a large-scale enterprise said, “Personally, I love how GoodTime values client feedback and takes our requests for improvements to the tool seriously. I've already seen several changes since we started with the tool that have made our investment that much better.”
GoodTime was founded by Ahryun Moon, Jasper Sone, and Peter Lee who met at a hackathon in 2014. They started the company with the sole aim of improving the process of job interviews for hiring teams. But when they started seeing the kind of impact their product was leaving on recruiting teams, they decided to expand their business to include all types of meetings.
The mission behind both their products is to make meetings smarter and help drive better results every time people get together.
