25 million users in 16 languages – and growing fast
Since our beginnings in 2008, we’ve grown explosively all over the world. Today, one in seven UK jobseekers have applied for an opportunity powered by Tribepad.
Solving forehead-crinkling recruitment headaches from the living room.
Our CEO, Dean, started his career as a web developer with a tiny start-up. Fast-forward to 2008 and that tiny start-up had grown to 700+ people with Dean at the helm as CTO – but recruitment had never stopped being a major headache.
People first, product second, profit third.
Dean knew he wanted out of the big corporate world. He wanted to build a tech company that put people above profit – and he wanted to create a genuinely amazing product that solved forehead-crinkling real-world problems.
Dean and Dan (now our CTO), put their heads together in Dean’s living room – and Tribepad was born.
And that’s where our philosophy comes from: People first, product second, profit third.
We are deeply committed to ethical, sustainable business
We know that climate change is a major crisis facing our planet. We can’t afford to sit on the fence and wait for the politicians to do something. We must take action ourselves. Everyone can make small changes, which collectively makes a huge positive difference.

Some Tribepad folks
Our team is here to ensure your success. Here are some of our team who you’ll encounter when you partner with Tribepad.
A culture of treating people right
When Dean was a teenager, his dad got cancer and was made redundant as he was going through chemotherapy. That memory has meant Dean’s always cared intensely about building a company that treats people right. That doesn’t just mean competitive salaries, a bonus scheme, a great pension scheme and private healthcare. It’s about a community where everyone genuinely cares for each other and supports one another.
A growth mindset
We feel privileged to play a small part in our people’s journey in life – and we take that privilege seriously. That means we’re deeply committed to helping you grow, like offering interest-free loans to pay off debt, sponsoring training you’re interested in or even helping you learn to navigate the stock market…!
We actively encourage entrepreneurial thinking and a growth mindset from our people, even if that means you won’t be here forever.
A thriving life outside work
We’re absolutely hard-working and passionate about our product – but everyone has a life outside Tribepad. You’ll find we’re an easy-going bunch who work flexibly, so you can sustain the life you want outside work.
A company you'll be proud to work with
We’re deeply committed to ethical, sustainable business that does good for our world and community. Check out our Ethical Manifesto to learn what actions we’re taking. We’d love you to get involved.
A fun office environment
Our offices are in the Innovation Centre in central Sheffield (because where else would they be…?) We sit open plan in teams, but everyone mills around chatting to everyone else.
There’s plenty of team space too, with the likes of games consoles and snacks. Our office is just a nice place to be, really. (We know, because we asked everyone if they’d rather work remotely forever after the pandemic and they said absolutely not).
An endless supply of free food
We’re big food lovers so you’ll find healthy (and not-so-healthy, who’s judging?) snacks and drinks available anytime you’re in the office.
Plus you’ll get free lunch daily too, choosing from stuff like salads, healthy ready-meals, soups and paninis. And every Friday we order lunch together – usually pizza, noodles, burritos; whatever everyone fancies.
We believe in loving what you do. That’s why we built Tribepad.
Tribepad is the only enterprise talent acquisition suite that’s both extremely powerful and extremely easy to use. So you can overcome your biggest recruitment challenges – and focus on what you love about recruiting.
