What the FAQ?
If you don’t find the information you are looking for here, please drop us a line.
- We are a team with technical backgrounds, obsessed with the idea that recruiting can be done differently.
- First of all, because Manfred will sync your data in all of these platforms anyway, but the most crucial thing is that we won’t own your CV. Your data is yours.
- Unlike other platforms, with Manfred you will have complete autonomy and control over all your data. YOU decide how it is managed:
- You can easily export your data as a JSON file, in an open source format, whenever you want.
- You will be able to establish a two-way synchronisation between Manfred and your GitHub repo.
- Of course! Just log in to your Manfred Profile. Go to Settings, it's the central icon on the bottom left, and once inside, select the 'Delete account' option. Once you have deleted your account, we will delete all your personal information from our servers.
We help companies attract the technical talent they need. If we really believe a job role could be of interest to you, we will ask you if you want to go further.
If you are interested, we will support you during the whole process.
If you are not, we won't send your personal data to any company.
Manfred's services are always FREE for candidates.
And for employers, we have a success-based model in place: if a candidate accepts a job offer through Manfred, and only in that case, we charge the company a one-time commission of 15% of the candidate’s gross salary for the first year. For example, if a Manfredite signs a contract with a gross salary of €100,000, we will charge €15,000 to their new company.
- We work with different kinds of companies, from startups to large corporations, but we apply the following conditions to all job application processes in which our candidates participate:
- We obtain and publish detailed information about the position and the entire recruitment process (salary, conditions, responsibilities, phases, tests, terms, etc.) before deciding if it would be of interest to you.
- We maintain contact with the company and keep you informed every step of the way. No more waiting around in the dark.
- If you’re not hired at the end of the application process, we collect all the company’s comments with the aim of better understanding their decision and improving your chances the next time around.
- If you receive a job offer at the end of the application process, we help negotiate your salary, if you want us to. Thereby strengthening your bargaining power.
Through our open-source contracts (available on GitHub), you have full transparency on every detail regarding how we work with the companies who use our services.
- Of course, no matter where you live! There are Manfredites even in the most exotic of places 🙂.
