CutShort is not a job board. It's a networking platform to find just the right professionals using the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), gamification and your trusted network.

You can think of it like LinkedIn, except that it is NOT a social network and is highly efficient and hassle free.
You earn credits as you start using CutShort in a meaningful way. For example, you earn them when you respond to your messages faster. You can use these credits to upgrade your plans, however you can't redeem them for cash.
Entering your phone number secures your account and ensures you never miss important updates on your conversations with other users.

That's it! Your phone number is never shared with any CutShort user or a 3rd party. You can disable SMS alerts too if you wish not to be disturbed on your phone.
Don't you hate it when you message hiring teams but don't even get an acknowledgment back?

To save users from this experience, we track how quickly employers and candidates take action on their incoming messages. Action here means responding, sending acknowledgment or even discarding an incoming message.

Your average action time impacts the visibility of your talent card- meaning a good action time (less than 1 day for about 50% of our employers) means higher visibility while a poor value ( > 7 days) means lower visibility or may even lead to deactivation of your talent card. So please be nice and reply to employers faster!
No. Your contacts belong to you alone. Others can only see connections that they have in common with you.
Your talent card is visible based on your settings. In addition to showing it to the verified employers hiring at their own companies, you can choose to show it to third party recruitment agencies in our network.
Taking tests not only unlocks exclusive jobs, but also makes you stand out in front of the hiring companies. It also shortens your interview process since many companies will have a better idea of your proficiency. The programming test is 60 mins long while language specific quizes are 10 minute multiple choice questions each. The focus is on testing the basic logic and practical experience, not theoretical knowledge.
Employers will only see your score when you pass the test or emerge as a top scorer. If you don't pass, they would see it as if you never attempted the test. So please always take the tests - it won't hurt you in any way. :)
No. For any skill, you can take the test only once.
Sorry for that. We are adding more tests soon but do give us a shout at hello@cutshort.io to suggest your preferred skill.
Employers may choose to accept responses only from the candidates who clear certain tests. This is good news for you - since this means faster action time and a fast tracked hiring process. Think of this as a common admission test, meaning you need to take a specific test only once to qualify for all such jobs on CutShort.
Using your network is the best way to land a great job and CutShort makes it super easy. Just ask your professional contacts to recommend you. When they recommend, your profile will become discoverable to the high quality employers on CutShort. The best part - your privacy settings will still be honored!

You can also find common friends with employers across all your social graph on LinkedIn, Facebook & Twitter.
CutShort is 100% free for non hiring users.
CutShort connects you with high quality professionals who meet your needs without the noise that you see on job platforms or social networks. It features a strong match making algorithm, an effective gamification engine and AI based workflow automation to make your hiring highly productive.

And hey, if you are hiring techies, it even has built-in screening tests to save your time and provide for effortless talent disdiscovery.
CutShort is designed for top professionals with experience in product companies and startups. Most of our users are techies, marketers, designers, sales professionals and senior execs. You could talk to Voila, your professional assistant to see a preview!
Services like Gild and Belong gather candidate profiles from the internet and score them on your job descriptions. They are search tools for passive talent and are like searching people on LinkedIn.

CutShort connects you with right matching professionals at the right time - when they are actually interested in new job opportunities. This leads to a 5x better response rate and 10x better chances of closing a hiring.

Your earn credits as you start using CutShort in a meaningful way. For example, you earn them when you respond to your messages faster. You can redeem these credits while upgrading your subscriptin plan.
To save you screening time, we have developed proprietary tests to evaluate a candidates's logical programming skill and experience on language/framework such as Angular.JS. You can choose to accept responses only from the candidates who clear or score very well at these tests.
The programming test is language agnostic and has two questions, to be solved in 60 minutes total. The focus is on evaluating the logical reasoning and basic programming constructs such as recursion. The language/framework quizes test the practical experience of the candidate while using a specific technology. The questions are a mix of Easy, Medium and Hard. If a candidate passes a test, we will show a green check mark in their talent card. If a candidates does really well (comes in top 5%) we will show a golden check mark.
Sure. Just talk to us directly.
Not hearing from a potential hire you messaged is frustrating. Isn't it?

All CutShort events are 100% online. Everything happens online - hangouts with speakers, connecting with companies, hiring talent and so on.
Unless you're attending an event to recruit people, our events are 100% free. If you want to recruit at an event, you would need a Recruiter plan - they cost very little compared to organizing your own hiring events or Hackathons.
CutShort events start with a live Google Hangouts with industry leaders. Career events also feature companies that are hiring top talent aggressively. Aftet the Hangouts, participants can "show interest" in connecting with each other and get introduced to each other.
It varies from event to event. We have seen up to 300+ companies such as Google and Amazon hiring in 1 day.
Again, it depends on the focus on the event. Unless specified, you can assume there will be a variety of roles in tech, busines, operations, HR and so on.
The goal of the event is to make the introduction. After that it really is up to the participants to take forward the discussion and close it. As a platform, we will try to pushing our users to close the discussions, but we can't really force them.
Events normally are just a start. Many companies and users get super active on CutShort. To help them find each other, we migrate your event profiles and jobs to the main CutShort platform. This way you continue to get responses and can take forward your conversations.
