We are occy

We created occy because we believe candidates AND recruiters in the high-volume hiring space deserve a way better experience.

Without the right system to support them, hiring teams were drowning in admin, with no time to do the part of their job they loved best – dealing with people.

That’s why we made occy to be different; we’re one of the only recruitment technology companies with a truly end-to-end platform designed for businesses that need to hire repeatedly.

Our Mission

Spending over a decade in the recruitment technology industry, we saw the pains and frustrations of recruiters in volume hiring. From candidate attraction to too much time being spent on admin – time and time again, volume hirers weren’t having their needs met. Our mission is to change that.
It’s not just candidates that deserve a great experience. That’s why occy’s on it to help volume recruiters get the results they want. But most of all, give them time back so they can focus on the human side of hiring again.

Our History

Before occy, Smart Recruit Online was founded in 2011. We started as a simple candidate attraction service offering online job advertising, which then progressed to us offering our own Applicant Tracking Software in 2016.


For years, we helped some of the biggest companies in their respective industries lower their costs and improve their time-to-hire.


It soon became clear to us that recruiters hiring frequently were being underserved by tech providers… and so occy was born.
