What is SeekOut?

SeekOut helps thousands of organizations hire, grow, and retain great talent with its people-first talent optimization platform and proven expertise in diverse and hard-to-find talent. In our digital age, organizations are overflowing with data—yet few deeply understand their employees because people data is siloed and disconnected. Your people are the real difference makers—and once you know their passions, experiences, and the opportunities that will get them to where they want to go, you can better align their skills, capabilities, and career paths to the needs of the business. SeekOut unifies talent acquisition, talent management, and talent analytics to help you grow the people you have and find the people you need. Six of the top 10 most valuable companies in the United States trust SeekOut as their single platform for managing and recruiting talent.

SeekOut is recognized on Forbes’ list of America’s Best Startup Employers, Deloitte’s Fast 500, and the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies. In 2021, SeekOut was crowned GeekWire Startup of the Year. Founded in 2017, SeekOut has raised $189 million in funding from leading investors like Tiger Global Management, Madrona Venture Group, Mayfield, and Founders Circle Capital.
