What is the Candidate Filtering feature?

Humans filter candidates for you, so you can hire the right fit for your team.

Filtering candidates is one of the biggest obstacles and frustrations for many remote companies. Screening through hundreds of remote applicants can feel overwhelming and it often delays the overall hiring process.

With the Candidate Filtering feature selected, you’ll receive manually prioritized batches of applicants 3, 14 and 30 days after posting your job, ensuring you see the right people first.

All applications from candidates will automatically be emailed to jobs@weworkremotely.com.

A real human (not a bot!) takes a look at your job description, sorts through all of the applicants, and prioritizes them based on the requirements you've indicated.

Candidates will be filtered on the basis of technical requirements, location, regional restrictions, experience level, etc. Please make sure these requirements are clear so we can filter them effectively! We do not remove any applicants from consideration, we simply prioritize which applicants you should look at first.

You will receive an email from jobs@weworkremotely.com:

  • First batch - 3 days after posting your job
  • Second batch - 14 days after posting your job
  • Third batch - 30 days after posting your job

All batches will include a document that outlines the candidates’ contact information, the date the application was sent, and of course, the application itself (along with the candidate’s original email). Please keep in mind this feature is still in beta and we appreciate your patience while we improve it!
