Recruiters on Merit are committed to cultivating and retaining diverse tech teams. They know to look to Merit’s talent network as a place to source great product management, software engineering, and product design candidates.


How can I create my candidate profile?

To get started, visit your Merit account and click “Create a candidate profile” under “🔍 Job search.” Once you’ve indicated that you’re searching for a job, you’ll be able to upload a resume, add job experience, and indicate preferences for the roles you’re interested in.

Pro tip: Increase your likelihood of a reachout by adding your resume or portfolio under “📝 Work Experience.”

Who can see my candidate profile?

With a candidate profile on Merit, you’ll be part of a network that recruiters can look to when searching for talent.

Only recruiters who are actively sourcing on Merit will be able to view your profile. If a recruiter is interested in reaching out to you about an opportunity, the Merit team will contact you.

You can prevent current employers from seeing your profile within your settings under "🙈 Blocked Companies."
