Rooted in language, growing in comprehensive employability

Learn about the team and technology behind HiringBranch.

Our mission

We know hiring for call centers takes time. A lot of time. Screening, interviewing, sending offer letters - it's a huge administrative burden.

Yet, there has never been another way to do it.

At HiringBranch we believe that identifying the best candidates should be easy. We also believe that elevating employees' best skills lead to happier people.

Our mission is to forge the path to hire effortlessly (literally, with zero effort) and confidently. So we built technology to enable the next generation of hire modelling.

We call it, The No Interview Model.

Actually, our customers coined it first and we liked it so much, we adopted it ;)

Customer & Candidate Experience

We wake up every day asking ourselves how we can make the lives of hiring managers and their candidates better. That's why we stay close to customers and routinely collect customer feedback.

Unbiased, D&I
