What is Teamtailor?
Designed to make you more attractive to potential candidates, Teamtailor applicant tracking software focuses on company branding and recruiting. Why? Simply, many employers struggle with effectively presenting their employer brand. Also, other applicant tracking systems miss the mark on making it simple and central to an effective hiring process.
Teamtailor incorporates tools like career site building, running referrals, and marketing jobs to specific talent demographics through designated landing pages and talent pools. It also integrates with dozens of job sites for free – offering you broader access to pools of candidates.

Teamtailor’s hyper-focus on recruiting pays off and allows it to stand out as a top recruiting platform. However, this hyper-focus on recruiting means it’s lacking in other HR areas, such as HR analytics and more robust reporting capabilities. Overall, it doesn’t offer as many all-in-one HR solutions as some other HR platforms we reviewed.
Teamtailor users agree that for recruiting, you can’t get much better. We found the platform to be incredibly easy to use and it offers many opportunities for automation that users say drastically saves them time and pays off in delivering a more pleasant and streamlined candidate experience.

There are three specific features that this platform incorporates that make it a great choice for modern hiring teams.
1. Controlling for unconscious bias
Unconscious bias is always a concern to be aware of and have a plan for minimizing in any recruitment process. In the platform you can set any stage of the hiring process to “Anonymous mode” to remove identifiable information, putting the focus on a candidate’s skills and qualifications. This is especially helpful during the initial stages of screening and interviewing candidates. A flaw of this feature though, is that resumes and CVs are anonymized in preview mode only. Once opened or downloaded, all information is visible.
The anonymous mode can be enabled at any stage of your hiring process. When you do this, the system will mask the personal information related to your candidates when they are in that stage. Source: Teamtailor Knowledge Base.
2. Prioritizing and streamlining communications – internal and external
Understanding and optimizing for the user experience for both hiring teams and candidates, Teamtailor’s design makes staying in contact and providing the right information at the right time manageable. One feature that stands out to me is the opportunity to build interview kits for members of your hiring team that corresponds with specific steps of the interview process. This ensures everyone has everything at their fingertips – from the candidate’s resume, to interview questions, to spaces to record their feedback and notes.
You can create as many interview kits and customize them to your needs. If you haven’t created any interview kits, start off by clicking + New interview kit. Source: Teamtailor Knowledge Base.
3. Seamless integrations
After running hundreds of hiring process in my career, I have gained an appreciation for platforms that allow me to do most, if not all, of my tasks within them and with an interface that is intuitive and user-friendly. Teamtailor does an excellent job with this, from calendar and meeting management integrations that make scheduling interviews a breeze, to their job offer creation wizard that allows you to send branded, interactive and engaging job offers to your top candidates.
