Teamtailor particularly stands out for its career site builder. Yes, many ATSs have this, but it’s an afterthought feature for the majority of them. The case is different for Teamtailor as their career site builder was one of the original core features that the rest of the platform was built around.
Ease of Use
- Teamtailor’s ATS comes with a robust career site builder that’s also easy to use. It works with drag and drop - no coding knowledge necessary.
- Teamtailor backs several features that support diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI), including anonymous hiring, equal employment opportunity (EEO) surveys, etc..
- Teamtailor is highly rated for their ease-of-use. It’s quite simple to post and promote jobs through their platform.
- There is really in-depth and intuitive help documentation for this solution
- Teamtailor’s analytics are good, but enterprise clients need to use BI Connectors to build the reporting they need. Right now, you can’t sport data from the system. This is particularly important for companies with 500+ employees, or those who have many different locations or franchises.
- Analytics doesn’t allow recruiters to see their cost per hire, which is a really impactful metric
- While they offer integrations with HRIS, onboarding, etc - they have focused on just being a really good ATS now.
- There are predefined user access levels, but you cannot define your own user access levels which is important, especially for the largest companies.
Teamtailor is an applicant tracking system with great employer branding features built-in. One of its powerful features is the career site builder. Talent acquisition teams can build their own site without needing help from IT and marketing. This means TA is more in charge of their employer brand. This is a customizable site that relies on basic building blocks to make it easy to add calls to action, infographics, social wedges, and more.
As the product starts to service larger and larger companies, there is more functionality around customizing stages in the ring process, as well as filtering so that you can find the jobs and candidates that are most relevant to what you’re working on currently.
They also have a nurture feature for candidates that aren’t ready to apply. These are basically marketing campaigns, but for your candidates. For example, you may want to keep silver medalists warm for future hiring.
From a recruiter perspective, I can see my entire pipeline in analytics, along with stats around how long candidates have been in my pipeline, how fast I am to respond to candidates, etc.
Overall, we think Teamtailor is a really good ATS, suitable for mid-sized companies looking to attract and convert the right talent.
Teamtailor is not a good fit for small companies and startups looking to start small, then scale their software instance as they grow and have more cash flow.

Teamtailor was founded by Erik Andersson, David Wennergren and Richard Tifelt in 2013. The three of them had previously worked together across several projects, and realized there really wasn’t a candidate-focused recruiting suite. The original philosophy was all about the candidate, which also just so happens to make it very easy for companies to attract and recruit the best people.
A secondary, but very important priority for them was ensuring that Teamtailor is as user-friendly as possible so recruiters, employees, and hiring managers can get the most value out of it. Today, Teamtailor is now almost a decade old, used by 4,500 companies across different verticals.
