You’re an engineer helping shape our future. You need a job-finding app as smart as you are. Welcome to Knack for Engineers, a mobile app FOR engineers, BY engineers. We’re on a mission to transform the tech staffing industry into one that is more intelligent, efficient, and transparent.
The old ways of finding a job are no longer effective for most of the workforce. Outbound methods, like uploading resumes, searching the web, and sending cold emails are proving less and less effective.
Instead of looking for opportunities the old way, try Knack for Engineers. Simply upload your resume to a single mobile app and get connected with thousands of recruiters and employers looking for skills and experience exactly like yours.
There are a lot of amazing engineering opportunities out there perfectly matched to your unique skills and preferences, but finding them isn’t always easy. They are scattered across numerous job boards, staffing agencies, and employer career pages and HR departments. Our goal with Knack for Engineers is to combine all of those job sources into a simple, unified mobile experience that you can access at any time right from your phone. Knack for Engineers is like your personal recruiting assistant that is always actively working on your behalf to make sure opportunities you might be interested in hit your radar as quickly as they appear.
Our job crawler monitors hundreds of RSS feeds and does a full HTML crawl of job posts to create detailed hiring requests that can be matched against your profile.
Knack for Engineers gives you direct access to the top staffing firms and employers in the US, who can directly request interviews with you through our platform.
You will also have direct access to hundreds of recruiters via Knack for Engineers, who can send you interview requests directly through the app.
With so many engineers engaging with our platform, we expect plenty of feedback and criticism. We welcome it! A few common questions are answered below. Feel free to reach out if you have others.
No. It's a totally free app. Our infrastructure cost is negligible since we have a purely Serverless backend, and we monetize by charging staffing firms and employers for access to our amazing network of engineers. That allows us to build something completely free for engineers, which is as it should be.

No. We are very selective about which staffing firms we work with, and any communication from recruiters will come to you in the form of interview requests. If an employer or recruiter wants to talk to you, you'll get a push notification stating as much. You can easily decline if you're not interested, or schedule the phone screen or interview directly from the app.
No. We only share your profile with our own clients, which includes staffing firms and employers.
Yes, many of them. By default, Knack for Engineers shows both remote and onsite roles. The onsite roles shown in your feed are restricted to a geographical area surrounding the zip code you provide during signup.
