About Lever recruiting software

Recruiting software to tackle the most strategic problem companies face

We founded Lever in 2012 to tackle the most strategic challenge that companies face: how to grow their teams. We’re injecting the values we respect – collaboration, transparency, and humanity – into our software and re-imagining how organizations can think about growth, with talent and teamwork at the center.
