As a client, instead of trying to look for great talent using channels that yield low-quality leads, gain access to dozens of profiles per week who pass our high qualification bar and are actively seeking their next career move.

We're moving fast

In 4 years, talent.io raised €10M grew from 3 people in Paris to a team of almost 150 accross 5 countries. WIRED magazine picked us as one of Paris top 10 start-ups of 2016.

Our offices are located in Paris, Berlin, London and Amsterdam where people from 15+ different nationalities (half women and half men) collaborate.

Our vision and daily life are based upon our 3 values:

  • Think Team: together, we're better :)
  • Make Impact: individual actions DO make a difference in our startup.
  • Take Ownership: you're responsible of your work, and of the succes of talent.io - and you'll be credited accordingly ;)
