Reviews of Lever:



Willem W. - Quora.com

All in all, if you are a startup and you are still using spreadsheets, give Lever a try. I have no doubt that you will like it. The tool just works.

John L. - Twitter.com

Really impressed with Lever's ATS thus far. Great design and customer support.

Matt C. - Twitter.com

As far as design goes, Lever definitely has the best UI/UX of any ATS on the market. Objectively, it looks real pretty.

Chris S. - Twitter.com

I've built 2 companies post series B with Lever. I even worked with them when I ran sourcing at Twitter. No ATS comes close to the sourcing automation that Lever has.

skuhn - news.ycombinator.com

The interface is over-complicated to the point of being unusable for anyone who isn't committed to spending hours a week in it.
