Back in 2003, Nitin and Manju needed a simple and affordable recruitment software to manage hiring for one of their companies. When they could not find the right software, they decided to build one. Talentpool turned the lack of the required solution into an opportunity! Over three years, the product was developed, tested and improved – and a bunch of interesting features were added with time. Talentpool finally entered the market in 2006.

In the early years, the team realized that most of such automation was primarily pushed down by the management to end users. Recruiters were not convinced about adding an additional task to their already overflowing task list, especially if the interface was not easy for the end users to readily adopt it. So for Talentpool, simplicity and usability always came first. Built for the end user, Talentpool aims to make the recruiter more productive than ever.

Our Vision

We want to be the preferred recruitment software for reputed companies seeking high caliber talent. Our target is to create 1 million efficient recruiters using Talentpool.
