About us

We're on a mission to make recruiting fair.

It’s no longer enough to improve diversity. Businesses must actively fight discrimination in their hiring processes, because it’s the right thing to do.

Headstart is applicant matching and management software for early talent teams. Our customers lead the way in fair recruiting, hiring diverse future leaders to improve business performance.

Since launching in 2016, we’ve disrupted the recruitment industry with the idea that ‘people are more than a piece of paper’. We believe in contextualising data to change the way organisations think about people and talent.

Our team is unified by the obsession of fairness and the pursuit of truth.

We’re using technology to change the way businesses hire to maximize their success.

We use machine learning and dat science to transform the recruiting process, enabling clients to find the right high potential employees regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or age.

With major brands publicly supporting our mission, Headstart is fighting discrimination and enabling opportunity for candidates all around the world.

Our culture

We are a small, perfectly formed team taking on an almost impossible vision. We are a fully transparent and open business, and we try and engage everyone from across the business in all key decisions and actions, regardless of whether you are in product, operations, sales, or customer success.

Fully Flexible

We treat everyone as adults. We focus on results, giving you have the freedom to organise your own working day and style to compliment the rest of your team.

We believe people work at their best when they feel their best, both mentally and physically, so we believe in the importance of giving people autonomy and responsibility to deliver in a way that allows them to deliver their best personal and professional selves.

Fully Remote

We operate a remote, fully distributed model which means that in conjunction with giving you full flexibility around when you work, you also have the choice of where to work.

We believe that the technology of today allows every individual to contribute to building a great business without having to waste precious hours on a depressing commute or being forced to work in an homogenised environment.
