Recruitee vs Crew HRM – Feature and Price Comparison to Choose the Right One

recruitee and crew hrm comparison

We launched Crew HRM and asked for feedback. We compared it to Recruitee, well-known in Germany. Our product is new and open-source. It allows unlimited job posts. It’s also cheaper and customizable.

After the launch of Crew HRM, I contacted some of my connections to try the solution and share their feedback. One of my acquaintances shared Recruitee features with me, as it is pretty popular in Germany.

Initially, we planned to integrate with Indeed and LinkedIn and let applicants login or apply with LinkedIn information. This would take some time as we finish adding more crucial features. So, I decided to check out recruitee features, pricing and compare it with Crew HRM to assess where we stand.

What is Recruitee?

Recruitee is a hosted platform to manage job posts and applicants on the platform. You do not need to install the software or buy any hosting as they offer everything as a complete package. If you want to display the job posts on your website, you can copy a piece of code to embed the job posts.

As per Whois information, they have been in the business since 2009. So, they have a matured product, and it does not come cheap! You must pay a minimum of 269 US Dollars to use their platform. And that, too, is limited to 10 job posts only.

What is Crew HRM?

Crew HRM is a WordPress plugin you can install on your server or choose a host you like. That means the company cannot access your data, and you can own the software and all its information. You can also customize the code to your liking and add new features.

Crew HRM is a reasonably new product on the market, but the developers behind the product have been working in the industry for more than 12 years. More than 50 professionals have tested the product. So, it is a stable product now. We have no limits on any feature. You are free to create as many job posts as you want.

As it is an open-source product released under the GPL license, it is not mandatory to have an active license to use the product. It will keep working fine even after your subscription expires. An active subscription is only required to receive automatic updates and support.

Let’s take a look at the feature comparison of the platforms.
