New: Reach your candidates with SMS

Our brand new feature lets you communicate with your candidates with SMS. Make sure you shorten the communication loops and recruit more efficiently. 90 % of all SMS that are sent are read within the first 3 minutes. Make sure that you don't end up in a pile of a lot of unread emails, or getting overlooked in the inbox.


We always strive to make sure your recruitment is smooth and seamless. We have all been in a situation where we need a way to communicate faster with our candidates – so we thought, why not make sure all of our users can send and receive SMS to and from their candidates?

All outgoing SMS will be sent and shown in the Messages section, so all your communication with the candidate is in the same place. The candidate gets the SMS to their phone from your number, and when they reply the answers will be shown in Messages. Easy peasy! 

How to get started 

When you activate this feature, your company will get a number connected to a country of your choice. With this number, you will be able to send and receive SMS to and from candidates in Teamtailor. 

As you activate a number, we will give you 100 credits for free  to get you started. 

When you want to send an SMS from Messages, simply click the envelope icon and change it to the phone icon. As you send your SMS, the message will turn pink, to separate it from the blue emails.

When the candidate replies, you will receive instant notifications just like you get with email or chat messaging.
