The knowledge graph is amazing!

As a technical recruiter, it's really important that the data I'm sourcing is accurate and up-to-date. I haven't found a platform with more detailed (or accurate) information anywhere else. I've tried others but Diffbot seems to aggregate the latest information which gives me a huge advantage over other recruiters.

Pros

You can find anyone! They've got the most up-to-date accurate info that is incredibly helpful when trying to source niche candidates for high-level development jobs. It feels like I have an unfair advantage with the data I'm able to pull.

Cons

Took a little getting used to but their support team was really helpful and guided me in the query building process to find the right qualified candidates.

Powerful scraping tool with necessary developer support

Pros

The basically out of the box crawler could scrape a bunch of data quickly. There were tons of features that clearly would be valuable with the help of internal developers.

Cons

The initial output was generally pretty convoluted which required a lot of cleaning before being usable. It also required our own dev resources in order to really get the most out of it.
