Using Smart Filters

Our search experience is designed to allow you refine a pool of candidates that are most relevant for each job. As you find & recruit great candidates, our AI engine will look across key candidate details & recommends more great candidates based on what we know you like.

Filter Options

The filters along the top allow you to search through recommended candidates by keywords, their current company, their location, and their years of total experience, etc. For a full range of option, more filters are available by selecting the "All Filters" button.

In any search box where you can utilize Boolean search strings you'll see this symbol:

Click the symbol to enter a string or just start typing in the filter field directly. All boolean expressions will then be converted into Teamable's Smart Filters - these are color coded pills that allow you to set hard criteria, nice to haves, or dealbreakers for candidate criteria. Clicking any single criteria pill will tell you what the current status is (in this case 'Nice to have') and also provide you some other options:

These different options are also color-coded for quick identification.

"Must have"

Selecting "Must have" as your feedback on an attribute pill will act much like a filter. Teamable will treat this attribute more like a requirement than a preference. The attribute pill will turn blue and show a green check mark for that candidate and any other candidate who shares that attribute.

If you indicate that an attribute token is a “Must have”, the token will change to completely green.

"Nice to have"

By selecting "Nice to have" on an attribute pill, you are indicating that you prefer that attribute for a candidate. Teamable's Recommendations model will adjust to find more candidates that share that particular attribute and rank candidates with more "Nice to have" attributes higher in the candidate list. The attribute pill will turn blue and show a green thumbs-up icon for that candidate and any other candidate who shares that attribute.

If you indicate that an attribute token is a “Nice to have”, the token will change to completely blue.

It is important to note how 'Nice to have' works as a soft criteria set. Not every candidate you see will have an exact match on ALL of these attributes. Additionally, 'Nice to have' may be leveraged to find similar matches based on that attribute. For example: we may surface candidates that worked for either fintech or cryptocurrency companies in the past even if the expressed "Nice to have" industry is just "cryptocurrency"

"Dealbreaker"

Selecting "Dealbreaker" as your feedback on an attribute pill will act much like a filter. Teamable will disqualify candidates from the pool who have this attribute pill. The attribute pill will turn blue and show a red symbol for that candidate and any other candidate who shares that attribute.

If you indicate that an attribute token is a “Dealbreaker”, the token will change to completely red.
