Because augmented writing isn’t enough

We built our Smart Editor because fixing small phrases simply isn’t enough to compel qualified candidates to apply for jobs. Your jobs also need to be findable and easy to understand.

We help you write great job descriptions

We’re not building a language engine for sales teams; our Smart Editor was designed and calibrated for job descriptions alone. We built TapRecruit because we’re serious about building tools for hiring teams.


TapRecruit is more than augmented writing

Avoiding gendered language is just one aspect of writing a good job description. TapRecruit takes augmented writing one step further and offers 4 different types of guidance to ensure that qualified candidates find and understand your job:

Content: TapRecruit’s content guidance helps you avoid the administrative mistakes that are known to make job descriptions underperform. Think of this as a checklist that makes sure you’ve included everything before you post your job.


TapRecruit makes it easy for teams to work together

We set out to reinvent the way your team works together to write job descriptions. Here are a few of the powerful tools we designed that will make it easier for your team to collaborate and write thoughtful job descriptions:

Custom Templates: TapRecruit’s custom templates enable you to easily manage job content across your entire organization and speak with one voice. You’ll be able to create consistent, editable branding and deploy it by department, team, or even job type. You’ll be able to ensure that critical parts of your job descriptions are always on-brand by setting defaults for sections like Perks and EEOC. Just drop them into any template and you’re good to go.

Smart Salary Estimates: TapRecruit’s Smart Salary estimates help you understand how skills, experience and education requirements will impact your hiring budget by automatically estimating the job’s salary as you write.

‘Dropbox’ For Your Jobs: TapRecruit automatically imports jobs from any ATS. No configuration or IT assistance required. Hiring teams will know exactly where to start because their jobs are always organized and ready to edit.

TapRecruit has a lot of data

We’ve collected and organized 10’s of millions of job descriptions from over 40,000 employers. Every day we add 10’s of thousands of new jobs and organize them using our custom-built classification engine.

If you want to accurately test outcomes, you need to understand a job’s content. That’s why our classification engine looks at over 10,000 unique characteristics and over 500 job categories to automatically classify your job in order to help you write a winning description. No need to select your job type from a dropdown, TapRecruit automatically understands if your job is a junior software engineering role in New York, a senior marketing role in Milwaukee, or a Clinical Research Scientist in Toronto, and tailors your experience accordingly.

We’ve built a comprehensive recruitment analytics suite that will help every member of your hiring team make stronger, evidence-based decisions. The TapRecruit Smart Analytics Dashboards will help you measure the impact job descriptions have on your inbound hiring funnels. Learn more.
