Case Study_Quote Image_Coda_800x800

"Searchlight makes me feel good that we’re digging into the signals that are most predictive for quality of hire. It’s taken a lot of guesswork out of our hiring."

Kenny Mendes, Head of People, Coda

Coda is an all-in-one doc startup that brings words, data and teams together. With a valuation that doubled to $1.4 billion in under a year and a destiny to make Excel a thing of the past, Coda needed to grow and foster a team of top talent.

Searchlight allowed Coda to win competitive talent faster using behavioral data. Leveraging Searchlight data, Coda scaled by hiring three times more people, avoided mis-hires, and armed their hiring managers with valuable insights to build a stronger, more aligned team.
