About Us

Firstbird, the digital employee referral program, connects people with their vocations and companies worldwide with suitable candidates. With Firstbird, employees become brand ambassadors, and referrals become a company’s most successful recruiting channel.

Our Mission

We love recruiting, but…

Recruiters connect people with their vocation. Recruiters discover talent, promote careers and create opportunities. We love recruiters and we love recruiting. But if we’re really honest, recruiting frustrates us. Because at times, it’s a lonely battle against dried up applicant pools, the mountainous expectations of specialist departments, and the fast moving technological changes of our world.

From Human Resources to Human Connections

Recruiters everywhere need to put the “human” back into human resources. We support them in reaching the right people through personal connections so that they can shape the teams of tomorrow.

As the leading digital employee referral program,

we think of each company as a big, beautiful flock of birds. Within each flock, there are so many unique individuals, but together, they are all flying in the same direction, towards the same goal. However, instead of recruiters having to fly alone against the wind to find new employees to join their flock, we help them use the network of their own flock to really take their recruiting to new heights. Ready to spread your wings and fly with us?

We Live Our Vision

The Firstbird Flock As An Organization

Together we are more.

We not only give this promise to our customers, but also to our employees.

We live in the world of New Work.

Based on our four pillars of cooperative leadership, transparency, autonomy and empowerment, we have created a unique organizational form that gives each employee a voice.
