Read Time1 Minute, 31 Second

BERKELEY, Calif.—Blind, the leading anonymous professional social network, today announced the launch of Talent by Blind. Talent by Blind connects some of the hardest-to-reach software engineers with some of the fastest-growing startups and most innovative companies in the U.S., streamlining job offers and placements for developers and other technologists.

Seven out of 10 software engineers rely on platforms like Blind, ahead of company-sponsored media, personal and professional networks, or news articles, according to a recent survey of 65,000 software developers from 186 countries by Stack Overflow.

“Engineers rely on Blind to find companies with the most compelling culture, growth opportunities, projects and values. The trust is why Talent by Blind can source and place the best qualified and diverse software engineers that job boards, talent marketplaces or other recruiters can’t find,” said Blind Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer Kyum Kim.

Blind sources and vets candidates from its community of more than 5 million verified professionals. Each month, thousands of engineers from some of the largest and most high-profile technology companies and startups create a personal Talent by Blind profile to get paired with their own headhunter for free. Blind’s recruiters start advocating for job-seekers as soon as the same day to match software engineers with multiple interview requests and job offers at leading companies.

Top companies, including Affirm, Albert, the Alphabet company X, BlackRock, CoinList, Ripple, Stellar, StubHub, ZipRecruiter and more, use Talent by Blind to recruit some of their hardest-to-fill technical and leadership positions. A majority of all Talent by Blind candidates are placed in senior or staff engineer roles by Blind’s recruiters.
