Our Story

Who We Are. What We Do. Why We Do It.

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

Today’s hiring tools and technologies are broken remnants of a previous era when quantity mattered more than quality. We want to bring the same innovations from the consumer technology world of 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 basically 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 stages of the hiring process and make smart recommendations every step of the way. 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.
