Careers

Plum has raving fans, customers, recurring revenue, a massive market, funding, three national awards, coverage in WIRED and The Atlantic, widespread support across the United States and Canada, and plenty of interest from overseas markets – all of this in less than a year and a half. Plum is a HYPERDRIVE company (Alumni of Communitech’s $30M Accelerator in Kitchener/Waterloo), is on track to be a household name in a few years, and finally, is extremely humble.

For companies with too many applicants, Plum not only helps match for job fit and company culture, it is also the only tool on the market that identifies high potential applicants before anyone picks up a resume. Plum has wrapped an extraordinary business around the highest quality of personality assessments recognized by scientists all over the world. Plum provides the only assessment ever designed and proven by the scientific community to control for individuals that aim to artificially improve their results: neutralizing gaming, faking, and cheating. Effectively, Plum is gathering the most reliable, predictive and valuable talent acquisition data ever available. The market potential is enormous ($420B global recruiting market, $124B in North America) and assessments are the fastest growing part of the market.
