Scouted (beta) - Bringing Google’s secret weapon for hiring to Greenhouse and Slack

Vinayak Ranade

Most companies already use network recruiting practices in two parts of the hiring process.

  1. Referrals
  2. References

There’s a third place where the best companies practice network recruiting which is not as talked about - Applicant Screening. Today I am excited to announce a new beta app from our team called Scouted which helps you bring network intelligence to your applicant screening process. 


Scouted looks at applicant resumes to find employees in your organization that might be connected to them, based on overlapping work experience. When there’s a match, Scouted automates the workflow and process to collect an internal review about the applicant from the most relevant people on your team.

Many companies already do this informally, but the workflow is clunky, the data and process is unstructured and often not even recorded. Scouted makes it seamless.

This first version of Scouted integrates with Greenhouse ATS and Slack. The coolest part is that the setup is a breeze. Just connect Greenhouse and Slack and you’re ready to rock. You don’t even need to get your employees to sign up!

And one more thing - we’re making Scouted free for anyone that signs up this year.

At Drafted we’re always thinking about new ways to add network intelligence to the recruiting process. This year alone we’ve shipped the Drafted layoff network for COVID-19 layoff exchange and a new product for diversify your referral program beyond your employee base with External Referrals. With Scouted, the team is excited to add another way for you to take full advantage of your company network.
