Our story

👋 Hi, I'm Chris

Last summer I had to close my startup and lay off my entire team. It sucked. I tried to help them all find new jobs by sharing a spreadsheet of their profiles with my network and couldn't believe that was the best I could do.

Since then, it seems like we've seen more news of layoffs. Almost every time, it is followed by a spreadsheet: one tab for jobseeker profiles, and another tab where recruiters or hiring managers are adding jobs.

I wanted to make something better. Silver Lining is a project to help those affected by lay-offs. My goal is simple: to capture the right candidate information and put it in front of recruiters in a single place. No more messing around in disparate, ugly spreadsheets every time there is a layoff announced.

Coming soon: a forum for jobseekers, and we just released a job board too. Stay tuned.

Recruiters, are you looking to hire great talent, fast?
