"Seven out of 10 job seekers already use mobile technology to search for jobs. What’s more, 32% of job seekers have already used a mobile device to apply for a job, while 86% would do so if there was an easy way." TAM is completely mobile responsive, making it much easier for applicants to find and apply for your jobs.

Need help selecting an ATS?

Our Leadership Team We started in 2006 as The HR Manager, a Human Resources consulting firm providing a wide range of HR services, including recruiting, for small-to-medium sized businesses. Then in 2010, one of our clients challenged us with helping them fill over 60 positions in a matter of weeks. Because they were a startup, we were faced with having to find a solution that would help build a positive employer brand and where we (our client and our recruiting staff) could communicate through different time zones. The solution had to fit within our client's very modest budget, had to be intuitive for users with varying levels of computer skill, and had to be easily customizable. We considered many solutions, but we were not able to find one that worked for our clients and that accommodated their processes.

So, in 2011 we built The Applicant Manager. We combined a staff of highly experienced recruiters with veteran Silicon Valley programmers to create a tool which is Simple, Configurable, and backed by great Service. As a privately owned company founded and located in California, we’ve stayed true to our original values while growing over 100% each year. We’re proud to be able to make a difference in the recruiting efforts of our clients. In 2015, we received certification as a woman (WBENC) and minority (MBE) owned business.

Very intuitive, user friendly and staff is very helpful! TAM is upfront and honest about their abilities/service. ALL TOP NOTCH. Interested in matching your needs (and they did!). We track for AA/EEO compliance - simple reporting. Highly recommend.

Nick- Evergreen Lodge

It's very easy to use and administer. The workflow process to move through applications/resumes is very easy to learn and allows you to efficiently screen applicants to find the best candidates. The ability to take notes, email through the system and assign candidates to different jobs/managers are powerful tools as well. The training and support provided by TAM are top-notch.

The software is very easy to implement and the supplier is HR-centric, so most of our functional concerns were covered well with the product. I love the fact that it's hosted, and they were very flexible with matching the "look and feel" of our company webpage to their product.

Magnolia- Thirty Meter Telescope

The Applicant Manager (better known as TAM) made our recruitment process so much easier. Managers are very pleased with all the features, from being able to share resumes to searching the database. Since I am the only recruiter at TMT, managing the positions and resumes is now a breeze. Also, TAM has impressed me with their very responsive customer service and their willingness to listen to added system feature requests.

Paul- J.R. Abbott Construction

The team is extremely responsive to questions. The responses are personal, and they make every effort to incorporate new ideas into their product moving forward.

Corinne- Burke Williams Spa

From the moment we first connected with the TAM team, I knew that this was the ATS for us! It has been easy to use, and has been a total lifesaver! We've been able to completely change the way we source applicants, and our rep's attention to detail and ability to anticipate our needs as a client were what initially struck us. She just gets it! We're a medium sized business that is growing, and this was the perfect solution for modernizing our systems.
