About CompanyMatch and our journey

CompanyMatch was founded in 2014 by Bjorn Veenstra, who was inspired by his own hiring experiences to create a platform that values Company Fit as much as Job Fit in achieving hiring success. Today, CompanyMatch is a leading technology and data-driven platform for talent and employers to meet and match based on Company Culture preferences. Our mission is to help people find the Company Culture they'll love, which we believe leads to greater happiness and the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

What does it take to attract talent? 95% of all job ads are not even being looked at... Now that’s a serious waste of your time and recruitment budget. We think the solution lies in a better understanding of your audience's needs and expectations. During their (latent) search for a new working environment talents wants to be inspired by your company culture and they look for ways to identify themselves on important themes like: company values, growth, ambition, diversity and inclusion. Make it fun and relevant for talent to match with your company culture and you will be rewarded with great new colleagues and less recruitment costs.
