Who We Are Is As
Important As What We Do

At Crosschq, we help companies build diverse, winning teams and are redefining hiring success. We empower HR and TA leaders with data insights to improve hiring processes and decisions resulting in happier employees, better productivity, and a stronger culture with increased diversity and retention.

We’re building a culture that brings out the best in each of us.

At Crosschq we:

  • Hire talented people and trust them to do great work
  • Are diverse in so many ways, but unified in our mission
  • Pay obsessive attention to our customers
  • Use our personal time to help the underdog


Our culture is rooted in the rallying cry of EQUIPO (eh-kee-poh/)!

It’s the Spanish word that means “a group of people coming together to achieve a common goal."

We chose a Spanish word to reflect our commitment to creating a global, connected company.

Our Values: EQUIPO

Here’s what EQUIPO means to us and how we live it every day.



We hire talented people and trust them to do great work. We empower our team through radical transparency.


We pay obsessive attention to our customers and are super-users of our own products. We’re innovative, and we’re reducing bias in hiring. 


We are the pioneers of the Quality of Hire platform. We strive for perfection; there are no shortcuts to quality. We pay obsessive attention to our customers.


 We’re inspired by the ones we help both at work and through our volunteer efforts, to keep persevering because we know we’re making a difference.


We are diverse in so many ways but unified in our mission. We learn about, listen and celebrate each other. And we are fanatics of feedback.


We’re a work in progress and believe anything is possible. We’re optimistic about the future and how we’re fixing the mis-hire problem for talent leaders and job seekers, forever.
