About the Company

  • We're Tribepad, and we're the trusted tech ally to smarter recruiters everywhere. Combining ATS, CRM, Video Interviewing, and Onboarding, our talent acquisition software is a springboard for faster, fairer, better recruitment for everyone. If you want to work for Tesco, Subway, the BBC or hundreds of other well-known brands, then you need to use our software to apply for the job, be interviewed, and ultimately hired.

  • Over the past few years, 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.

  • We've largely grown by referral over the past decade or so and have been increasing our marketing and sales activity more recently to help us grow even faster. There's nearly 50 of us now, mostly in Sheffield but increasingly spread across the UK. We're all about building a business we're proud of, delivering growth and helping millions find the perfect job for them. 

  • We’re proudly carbon-negative and 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 and we are supporting an ocean clean-up mission.
