Notice to Agency Recruiters @ Ephesoft

Typical stock photo of people waiting for a job interview.

In my work leading talent acquisition here at Ephesoft, one of the challenges we have had is scaling the company (hiring). In the past, we have used agencies, but for at least this fiscal year, our goal is to not use any external recruiting services at all.

This is a tough challenge, but we have a strong volume of candidate flow and we’re hiring on a regular basis.

We also published a “Notice to Recruiters” on our careers page to help us clarify how we want to work with 3rd party agencies.

I am posting this notice here, for reference. The original is located at

Notice to Recruiters:
Ephesoft uses limited third-party recruiting support from carefully selected, authorized agencies with executed formal agreements. Any candidate information presented outside of these guidelines is considered unsolicited and immediately becomes Ephesoft property. Ephesoft will NOT pay a fee for any such candidate. Agencies are also hereby directed to NOT solicit or contact Ephesoft employees outside of our recruiting team directly in an attempt to solicit business or to present candidates. Repeated or aggressive behavior such as this, or any such acts that misuse or abuse the intended use of Ephesoft resources (such as customer support contact channels) or employee time with solicitations may result in Ephesoft choosing not to do business with your agency or any partners or eliminating existing agreements.
Candidates who submit themselves at any time or are submitted by Ephesoft employees or who are in communication about jobs at Ephesoft with Ephesoft employees within the last year are considered candidates sourced by Ephesoft and will not generate a fee. Each and every placement invoice is subject to scrutiny and payment may be declined if it is determined that the Candidate was not duly submitted under a valid agreement or otherwise had already been sourced by Ephesoft.
To be considered for addition to the Ephesoft staffing desk, please email careers@.
