FAQs

How does it work?
  • Talentful first gets your permission to access contacts in your social networks. Our machine-learning engine collects social content, and code snippets of your contacts from publicly available data found on sites like GitHub, Meetup, and Stackoverflow. If there’s a match between a job opening and someone in your contacts, you’ll receive a notification about the referral. From there, you will get the option to either approve or decline the recommendation. It’s that simple!

  • Candidates are recommended based on very specific job requirements. Our machine learning engine searches a variety of social media such as GitHub and StackOverflow. We then analyze how this content relates to the various job openings. We have a proprietary algorithm that understands what kind of code the candidates is writing or what kind of topics they are interested in. If an ATS is integrated, we can expand on the resumes from the ATS and provide an even more refined recommendation of the candidates.

  • We're currently in private Beta. If you're interested in learning more, you can request a demo here, and one of our account managers will be in touch shortly

  • You have the option to connect your Google Plus, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.

  • Talentful only temporarily stores the name and email of your contacts per your consent and does not have access to anything else. We will absolutely not share the contact information with anyone else (including your HR team) without your explicit consent.

  • Currently there are two options,

    The first option is temporary storage based on a specific job. All the contact info and analysis done on your contacts will be deleted as soon as the job is fulfilled.

    The second option allows Talentful to keep the data of your contacts for six months. The advantage to this option is you will not need to re-grant us permission within the six months period to access your contact list and talent are automatically recommended within this time.


  • Your data is encrypted and only you and Talentful’s backend engine will be able to read this data.

    People from your company, especially the recruiting team, will not be able to access your contact list unless you explicitly make a referral, whereby your contact’s info will be passed on to the recruiting team.


  • We integrate with major ATS companies like Lever, Greenhouse, and Jobvite, and any other ATS with an open API.

  • We would be more than happy to answer any additional questions! Feel free to email support@talentful.ai and one of our account managers will get back to you as soon as possible.
