About the Company

We’re Tribepad. We enable recruiters to match the right people to the roles in which they will thrive. What does that mean? If you want to work for Tesco, Subway, Pizza Hut, or the BBC then you need to use our software to apply for the job, be interviewed and ultimately hired.

Recently we’ve worked with the NHS, G4S and Sodexo to hire vaccinators, stewards, and security officers for Covid vaccine stations and Nightingale hospitals. Our software is literally helping to save lives.

Our company ethos is ‘people first, product second and profit third. That means we hire smart people, give them an exciting and rewarding job with loads of autonomy, and then they’ll build cool stuff and deliver great service. That inevitably leads to happy clients who want to stay with us, buy more and recommend us to others. So, we’ve grown largely by referral over twelve years. 

There are nearly 50 of us now, mostly in Sheffield, but increasingly spread across the UK as we completely support flexible working. 

We’re proudly climate positive, working with Ecologi to offset all the carbon we’ve ever produced. Along with our goal of planting 1 million trees, we work with Kiva to loan out $1,000 a month to small businesses in developing countries.
