Before you can view candidates on the Triplebyte platform, you’ll need to create a role within our system. Each role represents one of the positions for which you are hiring, and roles are the basic unit used for matching within our platform. Each role can have salary ranges, descriptions, and points of contact set separately from other roles; our matching algorithm treats each role separately and gives a separate batch of candidate matches for each role posted.
When you first open your dashboard, you’ll see a blank list. Click the small "+" button next to the role dropdown, and you’ll be taken to the role editor to add your first role.
Each role comes with the following properties, which you’ll need to set before sending the role active. These are mostly self-explanatory, but are discussed here explicitly for completeness:
Role Name: This is the name that will appear to you and to candidates.
Engineering Type: Engineering types are used by our matching algorithm to suggest candidates with an appropriate skillset. A role can have more than one type associated with it; adding more types will increase the number of candidates you see but reduce the specificity of matching.
Engineering Skills: These are the skills you'd consider most important for this role. Similarly to "Engineering type," adding more skills will increase the number of candidates you see but reduce the specificity of matching.
Base Salary Expectations: This is a range of salaries for the role. This range is displayed to candidates and is used by our matching algorithm to filter candidates. This is only one factor considered by our algorithm, and you may see candidates outside of the specified range, particularly if they are otherwise excellent fits for your role. This field is optional, but can improve matching and will likely make candidates more likely to speak to you (candidates love salary transparency!).
Equity: This is the range of equity offers for your role. Because equity varies wildly in practice, we don’t include this value in matching.
Additional Compensation Notes: This is a free-form text field for you to enter whatever other information may be relevant about compensation. If, for example, your company offers some fixed raise each year, this would be a good place to note that.
Role Description: This is the text displayed to candidates viewing your posted role. It supports Markdown (but not arbitrary HTML) for formatting. Surrounding text with double asterisks (as in “**text**”), for example, will display the text in bold. You can click the “preview” tab to see how your markdown will render on the candidate side. Candidates are much more likely to respond to postings with detailed descriptions.
Primary Contact: The primary person within your company responsible for screening candidates and ultimately filling this role. This is typically either a recruiter or a hiring manager.
Recruiting Contacts: The list of people within your company who will receive updates on candidate activity associated with this role. This usually includes a recruiter and may also include a hiring manager or other interested parties.
Scheduling Contacts: The list of people within your company who we'll contact to arrange the details of on-site interviews. This is usually a recruiting coordinator, but may include others depending on your company’s exact structure.
Sourcer Contacts: The list of people within your company who will be using Triplebyte to source candidates for this role.
Interview Location: The location in which you conduct onsite interviews.
Hiring Location: The location(s) (possibly more than one) where a hired candidate would actually work. If there’s flexibility in location - say, you have offices in both New York City and San Francisco and you're open to remote candidates - add all that apply.
Hiring Target: The hiring target for the role.
Job URL: A link to more information about the role.
Once you’ve entered all the necessary information, click Save to return to your main dashboard and view matches for your newly-created role.
