Zinc, a blockchain-based hiring platform, today announced a new partnership with SmartRecruiters, a leading applicant tracking system.

SmartRecruiters is a global leader of cloud-based talent acquisition software, used by over 4000 companies such as MacDonald’s, Visa, LinkedIn and Bosch, SmartRecruiters allows companies to automate all aspects of hiring.

“We’re very excited to onboard Zinc to the SmartRecruiters Marketplace. For decades, there’s been little meaningful disruption in the background and reference check business. Putting personal identity on a blockchain brings control back to the consumer. Not only does it flip the model on its head, but it’s also more compliant with modern privacy regulations. “

“Partnering with SmartRecruiters broadens their hiring toolkit, providing their clients with a solution that can transform referencing experiences for everyone, providing a transparent and smooth process for everyone involved.”
Roy Baladi, Head of Communications, SmartRecruiters

Customizable

Using Zinc as a SmartRecruiters referencing solution means that not only will users gain in-depth feedback from candidates’ previous colleagues, but candidates will also be able to view, own and reuse their references throughout their career.

The Zinc team worked with experts in referencing to design questions that will elicit particular data. They’ve created four different reference types: culture-add, employment verification, competency, and remote worker.

From the Zinc dashboard, users can choose from one of the reference types to generate a question set and then it can be customized so they fit a certain company, requirements, and culture. Once a user has created a default question set, Zinc will use these whenever referencing a candidate from SmartRecruiters.

Share references with candidates. Through blockchain technology individuals can truly own and control all their work data, then re-use it throughout their career.
