Frequently Asked Questions

Why use Elevator?

Elevator is the world’s first team recruitment platform. At Elevator we believe teams are everything. All of us want to do meaningful work with people we enjoy and respect. Our goal is to help you work with friends, do work that matters, and make the money you deserve.

Could my team be part of a “liftout” or be “acqui-hired” right away?

Yes, simply let us know if your team is ready to begin interviews and we will connect you with interested companies.

Would two people be considered a team?

Yes! Some of the best teams are dynamic duos. Your team can consist of two or more people.

How much does it cost?

Elevator is free to candidates.

What if I have a non-solicit agreement?

Please review any non-solicit agreements you previously signed or agreed to. Most non-solicits prohibit actively recruiting a coworker. You are responsible for adhering to non-solicit agreements with current and previous employers. Elevator is different as it allows teammates to seek opportunities in tandem with no need for soliciting.

What kind of employers are on Elevator?

We are currently partnering with tech startups and larger companies in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago and New York. We carefully select companies and request approval from our users before sharing any identifiable details with interested companies.

How do I know which employers are reviewing my profile?

The recruiting industry spams people a lot. You will be contacted only when there is a prescreened company with positions matching your team and a clear interest in you personally.

Will I be able to see the employers and proactively reach out to them?

No, only employers seeking an introduction will be connected. If there is mutual interest, we will make sure you are on your way to an interview.

My current company uses Elevator. Will they be able to see my profile?

No. Your profile is automatically hidden from your current employer. You can add or remove employers you are interested in on the Elevator dashboard.

Do I have to accept the job if I receive an invitation?

No, it is only an indication of interest and an opportunity to interview. You can accept as many invitations as you like. Your profile will be visible only to employers you approve.

What if I no longer want to be connected with a certain team member?

Simply disconnect them from your profile. No notification is given when a disconnection occurs so no bad feelings.

What if I don’t want to work for a specific company?

Simply outline it on your Elevator dashboard and we will note it accordingly.

Could I share my Elevator profile on other social sites?

There is no public access or sharing capabilities for user profiles. Right now we feel it’s important to protect user profiles.

If entire teams moved together, wouldn’t that change everything in corporate America?

Yes and we believe it will make it better.
