Our Mission

We’re excited to improve the interview experience and simplify the hiring process through better conversations and unbiased interview data.

Honeit interview technology makes it easy to capture, search and share interview intelligence for quick collaboration and better team decisions.

The Honeit interview platform streamlines four critical steps in the hiring process – attracting, scheduling, screening and assessing candidates.

Honeit was designed by recruiters to play nice with any ATS or CRM through light-weight scheduling links, share links and API integrations.
