What are some effective tools for recruiting?

There are tons of tools out there… So how are you supposed to know which ones to choose?

We’ve compiled a list of some of the best tech recruiting software in the industry. These tools have been selected thanks to being great options specifically for technical hiring processes.

Here are the best tech recruiting software for 2022.

The best talent sourcing tools for recruiters

One area where tech tools are incredibly important is talent sourcing. With sourcing tools, you can fill up your talent pipeline with the help of, for example, job boards and job aggregators.

They help you increase the visibility of your job postings across several job boards and portals and search for candidates with filters such as skills, location, and experience. You can collect profiles of candidates with resumes, contact information, and portfolios. Plus, 48% of all hires are direct applicants, so using job boards and aggregators is still key to sourcing candidates.

The top job boards and aggregators include:


Indeed, the job listing site, boldly claims to deliver 47% of all hires in the US, making it  a good place to start when you need to source candidates. You can set up screening questions to filter applicants and search Indeed’s resume database (73% of employers who source candidates from resume databases say they are extremely qualified).

Price: Sponsor jobs from $5/day


Out of Glassdoor’s 62 million monthly visitors, 65% search and/or apply for jobs, so Glassdoor is an important platform for any technical recruiter. While Glassdoor primarily offers salary and workplace insights (and is a must for employer branding), it also offers job listings.

Price: Custom quote for enhanced profiles


LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, is a key platform for sourcing candidates. LinkedIn’s Job Search Tool lets you filter people based on location, skills, industry, and recommendations.

Applicant tracking systems (ATS)

Applicant tracking systems are key to successful hiring processes. They help you automate the process by managing job postings, candidate information, communication, and applications.

In other words, a good ATS is essential for streamlining your technical recruitment processes. And here are the top tools:


Greenhouse streamlines your recruitment process by automating tasks, managing data (you can track data and transfer it between your HR systems), and providing reports. You can also use Greenhouse to collaborate with your team members and source candidates from multiple channels. Plus, the tool offers a great candidate experience, which is incredibly important for a successful hiring process. This ATS works best for medium-sized organizations.

A Candidate Relationship Management tool can help you build and nurture relationships with applicants and keep them engaged with your employer brand. This applies both to your current hiring needs, as well as nurturing relationships with candidates you may be interested in hiring in the future.

A CRM makes it possible to manage candidates’ journeys from their application all the way to their first day whether it's email nurturing, signing job offers, and so on.

CRMs and other communications tools are a must; 81% of candidates say that they look for continuous communication in hiring processes, while 52% say that their biggest frustration is a lack of response from employers.
