Whether you are a company of 1 or 10,000 employees, TalentLyft is designed to grow with you – providing the features and flexibility you need at every stage. You can find our pricing plans here.


How does TalentLyft's pricing work?

Our subscriptions are tiered based on the number of active job openings in your company account. We don’t set a limit on the number of team members because we support collaborative hiring.

What is an active job opening?

When you create a job opening - or a Job - in TalentLyft, it can have five statuses: draft, published, internal, closed, or archived. A Job is active when its status is set as

  • Published: seeking candidates

  • Internal: seeking candidates internally

  • Closed: candidate found but recruitment process still underway

Because you can work on the Job's pipeline and candidates in those statuses. A Job is inactive and doesn't count in your subscription when it is in:

  • Archived: jobs where the hiring process is finished, you have hired a candidate (or candidates).

  • Draft: jobs that are still in preparation, that you are still editing but not yet published.

Should I choose a monthly or annual plan?

TalentLyft is affordable for any size company that is hiring the best talent. There are 2 types of subscription plans:

  • Annual plans are billed upfront and include 12 months for the price of 10. If you have a good idea of the number of people you’ll be hiring across the year, then an annual plan is for you. Upgrade an annual plan at any time during your subscription or downgrade when your current subscription expires.

  • TalentLyft has also introduced two-year and three-year billing plans. Both of the plans are giving you the advantage of saving 25% and 27.78%, respectively. That means that you would be paying for 18 months and in fact getting access for 24 months for a two-year plan and paying for 26 months and getting access for 36 months with a three-year plan!

  • Monthly plans can be paused and reactivated. If you’re hiring seasonally or having a sudden growth spurt, a monthly plan is a good choice; you can upgrade or downgrade at any time. You can also pause your account and reactivate it when you need it – we’ll keep your data secure and untouched until you return.

Upgrading/downgrading your account

At any time you can upgrade/downgrade your subscription by simply choosing the bigger/lower package on your right.

  • Upgrading - If you are upgrading, you are choosing the new subscription month/annual plan and the newly chosen plan will be upgraded. Example: After 6 months, you decided to upgrade from the Starter 5 plan to the Starter 10 plan. Your plan will be upgraded starting from that moment and next 12 months you will have the Starter 10 plan. You will pay only the difference of $1045. 6 months on the Starter 5 plan is $445, you have $445 left from your purchased plan before and now you are purchasing an upgrade and paying only the difference from the price of the Starter 10 plan.

  • Downgrading - If, however you are downgrading, some of the positions may be white saying Archive jobs (blue arrow). That means you have to manage positions and archive openings to match the number of the subscription plan you are trying to choose. Simply click on Archive jobs and you will see the list of active positions where you will be able to choose which job you wish to archive. Once you clicked Downgrade, it will automatically charge the next month/year lower plan you chose.

Can I change my plan?

If you’re not currently hiring, your account will not be suspended or removed, nor will you be obliged to pay any fees other than for active openings.

Do you offer discounts?

We offer two months free when you opt for a yearly plan, six months free for a two-year plan, and ten months free for a three-year plan.

If you work for a startup, you might be eligible for our TalentLyft for Startups Program.

Also, we have 50% off for non-profits (learn more).

What forms of payment do you accept?

You can pay for any plan by credit card. For annual plans, we can also send you an invoice that can be paid by bank transfer. Please contact us to change your payment method. Monthly plans must be paid by credit card.

Free trial

How does the free trial work?

After creating your account, you get a free trial period of 14 days. The free trial gives you access to all TalentLyft features, creating one or multiple jobs, tracking applicants and scheduling interviews, and sharing the work and notes with team members.

You will not be able to post a job to the job boards unless you have an active plan or your account is verified. This is our cautionary measure to protect our customers' data and ourselves from fraudulent users.

What happens at the end of the free trial?

Two days before the end of the trial period, we will remind you via email to switch to a full account. You will not be charged or required to give your billing information before that. Your user data will not be deleted, you will just need to enter valid credit card details to regain access. After that, you’ll be able to continue using TalentLyft right where you left off in the trial period.


How do TalentLyft credits work?

TalyntLyft credits can be used to purchase assessments and to post jobs on Premium job boards. Each credit is worth $1 and you can pay for them by credit card. You can find more details here.

Do I pay VAT on the Credits and each additional ad purchased?
No, you don’t. If you’re liable to pay VAT, all VAT charges occur at the moment Credits are purchased. Any job postings you purchase with those Credits will be with no additional VAT.

What happens to unused Credits if I stop using TalentLyft?
