Company Description

Xref is a high-growth tech company supporting the HR and recruitment industries. We provide an online reference checking service to remove a traditionally manual and admin-heavy task in the recruitment process.  

But, as a workplace, we’re about much more than that.

If you’ve considered joining a startup but equally want the security of an established business, Xref could be the right place for you.

Since launching in 2011, we have:

  • Changed the way the HR and recruitment industries conduct reference checks

  • Gone public, listing on the ASX (Australian Securities Exchange)

  • Expanded internationally from our Sydney headquarters, into London, Toronto and Oslo

  • Signed up more than 1000 customers in APAC, EMEA and North America

  • Grown from a team of two to more than 80 worldwide

We’ve hit some major milestones and we’ve had a lot of fun along the way!
