Gem offers me a tremendous amount of leverage as a founder/CEO. I'm able to apply a high-touch, ultra-personalized approach at scale which is simply game-changing. The response rates for emails sent through Gem are much higher than if the emails were coming from a recruiter.

Before Gem, we were wasting our time on candidates sourced from low-quality channels, such as agencies. With Gem, we were able to target top-tier candidates and hire 2 of the first 5 members of our founding team.

Hiring is the #1 priority for every startup once they've raised money, and to do it well you need the right platform. YC companies have consistently raved about Gem, and we recommend it for all companies, whether they're hiring their first employees or at scale.
