Modern Hiring Software

Fast-growth companies like Intercom, Babbel, Invision, Tile and Declara, rely on Workable to build great teams. All startups admitted to Facebook's FbStart program are also using Workable to grow.

We value simplicity, choosing the features that matter the most. We haven’t wasted time trying to replicate old-world HR processes but to reimagine hiring with a focus on how we work today and how business has evolved.

We put all our focus on finding the right candidate. The hard part of hiring should be choosing the best candidate from a good shortlist instead of building that shortlist in the first place. Workable will help you spend more time with real prospects and less time screening duds.

We believe that conversation can replace complex workflows, allowing you to easily collaborate with comments and notifications — concepts that any Facebook user is already familiar with.

pretty expensive for what it is. they deprecated their cheaper pricing tier. craigslist has workable as one of the ban words. i've hired more than a dozen people using workable in the last 6 months. it's convenient but you may find it a little expensive unless you're constantly hiring.

GetApp Analysis

Workable combines the power of LinkedIn’s 200 million professionals with Internet technology and SaaS pricing.

The benefits for job hunters is the ability to apply for roles with one click, while the benefit for the employer is that they can analyze and display structured data and use this in the screening process.

The solution focuses on simplifying one of the most time-consuming recruitment tasks - looking for and screening candidates.

What is Workable?

Workflow's recruitment solution uses a process that is simple and straightforward. As LinkedIn forms the basis of all operations within the solution, it is therefore vital to have a LinkedIn account to use the software. Immediately after logging into LinkedIn, you are prompted to create a careers page for your organization. This page serves two main functions: it acts as your main homepage on the Workable site and is also used to advertise openings by embedding this page on your company’s website.

Creating jobs within the solution follows a standard workflow of detailing requirements for jobs, establishing screening requirements in which you can assign rules for each of the job criteria, collaborating with co-workers and colleagues to vet applicants, and finally publishing the job to job boards and social media. Workable has already tied up with Indeed, one of the largest job boards on the Internet, to post your job automatically to their site.

Workable has several features to speed up processing of resumes. You can establish preset filters for resumes, as well as collaborating with co-workers and colleagues to mark up individual resumes with comments.

The solution also helps you identify and track statistics related to your hiring efforts through a range of analytics, such as sources for overall responses and best quality responses. This helps job advertisers cut costs by eliminating job boards that do not provide quality leads. The solution also sends you a weekly or daily activity update for all listed positions.

Main Features

One of the more awesome features of the site is the candidate comparison browser, which enables you to compare multiple candidate profiles within a single browser instance. The layout is clean and accommodates multiple candidate profiles at the same time. In addition, it enables you to compare their qualifications against major criteria you have shortlisted for the job. Thus, it speeds up the hiring process.

The interface is simple, clean, and minimal. The homepage consists of two links: Dashboard and Activity. Explaining the concept behind the interface, Moraitakis says that they built a design “that helps you focus on what matters.” The designers seem to have succeeded in that endeavour. While my test account had little by way of details, Moraitakis informs me that most small businesses have packed dashboard with useful information, communicated in a visual format, minus clutter and confusion.


On the anvil are several enhancements, including integrations with other, major social networks such as Indeed Apply, Facebook and Github. Integrations with other, major job boards such as Monster, CareerBuilder and SimplyHired are also in the pipeline.


Workable uses tiered pricing, based on the number of positions advertised through the solution and support provided. Much like other SaaS solutions, Workable has a free version that can, with increased payments, scale up to an enterprise version. The enterprise version enables users to advertise up to 25 open positions and gets them premium support through multiple channels and a dedicated account manager.
