About Gild

Who We Are. What We Do. Why.

We launched Gild with a vision: to fundamentally transform hiring from the ground up.

Today’s hiring tools and technologies are fundamentally broken and from a previous era. We want to bring the same innovations that exist in the consumer technology world, like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook, to hiring technology.

Hiring talent is truly hard work. The processes are manual and repetitive, and the databases are dumb. Recruiters spend almost 80% of their time today on low-value, non-strategic, boring, labor-intensive tasks.

So it makes sense that our story started with two executives – Sheeroy Desai and Luca Bonmassar – who were frustrated with the state of hiring. They felt the methods and tools companies used to find talent were fundamentally flawed. No one had been able to solve the most important hiring problem: figuring out how to get the right person into the right position at the right time. Enter Gild.

Gild helps recruiters return to spending time on what matters most – building relationships with candidates and hiring the right people, faster.

Gild is the only company using data science, consumer-friendly technologies, and predictive analytics to bring intelligence to all phases of the hiring process. That’s why Gild’s customers can find, nurture, and hire the right talent quicker, better, and more effectively. With Gild, hiring is simply smart and easy.
