A New Adventure for the Distill Team
We are excited to share the news that the Distill team is off to start a new adventure! We are joining Yahoo. Prior to creating Distill, we were part of the original team behind the creation of Tapjoy, a mobile performance-based advertising platform that drove deep engagement and monetization opportunities for mobile app publishers. We’ll be drawing upon our expertise from the Tapjoy days to help build out Yahoo’s mobile advertising solutions.
As of today, we have stopped development of Distill Schedule and Distill Interview. You will still be able to schedule interviews through the end of February, and the Distill platform will remain available through Sunday, March 30, 2014. If you have any questions, concerns, or data requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reach out to your account manager directly.
We want to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone at the awesome companies we have been working with, as well as the candidates who have met their future employers through Distill. It's been a fun ride for us, and we couldn’t have gotten this far without your help. Thank you!!
The Distill Team
Interview better together, with Distill
With backgrounds at companies like Google, Yahoo!, Amazon, StumbleUpon, and Tapjoy, all of us at Distill experienced the challenges of identifying the best candidates to interview, and eventually to hire. Distill was created out of the best practices we identified when working at hyper-growth firms when hiring was a key part of the company's success.
We found that we could quickly identify great engineering, product, design, and sales candidates when they came on-site through interactive coding challenges, whiteboarding exercises, sales pitches, or case questions. Distill brings this experience to the screening process with our collaborative video interviewing platform. By moving the most predictive aspects of the interview earlier in the screening process, we enable recruiters and hiring managers to identify the right candidates more quickly and effectively, helping companies hire the right talent as efficiently as possible. Spend less time organizing candidates and more time hiring the right candidate.
Many tools on the market today, such as applicant tracking systems, are built only to manage a candidate pipeline without adding value to the hiring process. We're focused on optimizing the person-to-person interactions between the company and candidate to make the most accurate assessment possible for predicting on-the-job performance. At Distill, we're building new tools and products that help companies hire smarter and hire faster.
We're proud to work with leading institutional investors, notable angels and a team of experienced advisors to improve hiring and recruiting.
