About

We created talent.io 4 years ago as a platform to simplify job search for tech positions in Europe. Having raised more than €10M from venture capital firms and with offices in 10 cities across Europe including Paris, London, Berlin and Amsterdam, we are Europe's #1 job search platform for tech professions in high demand.

Our concept is simple. As a candidate, instead of wasting time researching job openings and applying for positions, sign up to talent.io once and have companies research your profile and "apply" to you. As a client, instead of trying to look for great talent using channels that yield low-quality leads, gain access to new profiles every week who pass our high qualification bar and are actively seeking their next career move.

Why join us:

Join a fast-growing company: since 2015, talent.io grew from 3 people in Paris to a team of 150+ in 4 countries.

Be part of a diverse team: with many different nationalities distributed across Europe, half women and half men.

Enjoy a ping-pong table, Wii U, xBox and more. We work very hard to create an environment that is friendly and fun.

Build your skills! At talent.io we like our hierarchy flat and the job description flexible. You will work with our founders and country managers, have a chance to take ownership on challenges you care about, call for brainstorming with anyone in the team design-thinking style, and make impact on the business.
