CANDIDLY creating job opportunities for free

CANDIDLY ( is a unique recruitment platform that intends to challenge what we believe to be the biased and unfair practices that are baked into the current recruitment process, giving all capable candidates an equal opportunity in the job market.

Like many others, we have been impacted by this global pandemic and our launch plans for May have been left in total disarray. However, we’ve decided that this is an opportunity to make a difference, just maybe not initially in the way we had set out.

As CANDIDLY matches employers to Software Developers based solely on their pre-verified programming skills, we’re able to significantly decrease time-to-hire. And in these times, that means helping those affected by the layoffs secure employment as quickly as possible.

We’ve therefore decided to launch immediately (our platform is already fully functional), and offer it for free to all parties for the rest of 2020. We’d always intended to offer free access to candidates, but we’ve decided to extend this to employers too, specifically to aid those businesses who are also struggling to keep their heads above water.

We’re an incredibly lean business and, to pull this off, we will require additional support to sustain our services. Although we’re not in a financial position to hire new staff, we’re asking those that are currently unemployed to apply for positions and we will provide alternative compensation packages until we are able to pay them in cash.

We are currently raising money to allow us to cover salaries for those that join our team, and running costs for 2020. We’re not asking for a donation, we’re looking for investment. If you contribute to this fund you will be provided future equity in line with the value of your contribution. You’ll also be a part of something that will not only make a huge difference in the lives of many people right now, but will continue to make a difference going forward as we change the face of recruitment for the better.
