Here’s What People Are Saying About Searchlight

Anna Wang & Kerry Wang, Co-founders

Here’s Why We Do What We Do

Hiring Should Be a Win-Win for Everyone

Twins Anna and Kerry Wang decided to create Searchlight after they graduated from Stanford with BS and MS degrees in Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence. They had accidentally ended up with the same resumes – same schools, same companies. During their own job searches, they saw how organizations struggled to evaluate their unique competencies, working styles, and strengths.

They believed that if they solved this talent data problem, it would not only help candidates land in the right role for them, but that it would also be game-changing for companies needing to build diverse, winning teams. They started their journey with Y Combinator and have since been recognized by Forbes 30 under 30 and the Future of Talent Acquisition Advisory Council.
