Our team transforms how you think about talent. Our technology transforms your hiring and compliance outcomes.

Our mission is clear at SkillSmart

We build technology that helps people, communities, and employers improve their lives. A lofty goal, we know. And yet we’re achieving it for the communities we serve across the US every day.

What drove us to found SkillSmart in 2013 is that we believe skills have value. The people who hold those skills are valuable. And transparency pulls it all together. So we developed technology for job seekers to display their skills in a meaningful way that draws attention from potential employers. In the same platform, we give employers the right tools to identify the exact skills they need.

In short, we level the playing field for all workers and give employers a more refined talent pool to choose from. It’s what makes us different than other job platforms. Because, well, we are not a job board. We are so much more.

And as we see needs across our clients, we expand our product suite with relevant solutions. Like a powerful data engine that helps companies meet their hiring and labor compliance requirements, increase their efficiencies, and reduce their administrative costs.
