Who We Are

Making Interviews More Effective

Lucas Price’s vision for Yardstick began as an executive at a high-growth startup. In 4 years, he grew his team from 3 account executives to a 100+ person sales team. Lucas viewed building his team as a combination of process, data, and human decision-making. However, in creating a methodology backed by data, he realized that the software to conduct the process did not exist.

He knew the standard interviewing approach couldn’t consistently identify the most qualified candidates. So after years of using flawed hiring tools, he decided to research how he could build a better system. Lucas partnered with a team of experienced HR professionals and technology leaders to create a software solution that solves the industry’s most significant pain points.

Yardstick’s Intelligent Talent Selection methodology is backed by decades of behavioral research to reduce the primary cause of mis-hires, cognitive biases. Yardstick’s proprietary software uses a guided, behavioral interview approach to help you identify the most qualified candidate. Our software continually evolves to include new research to improve the product over time.

We know that structured hiring is inclusive hiring. Companies that create a standardized interview experience for candidates are leveling the playing field, fighting against bias and discrimination, and ensuring fair hiring practices. Our goal is to enhance your current interviewing process to streamline the time to hire and differentiate a good interview from a qualified candidate.

We believe in removing our unconscious biases to identify and hire the best candidates through structured, behavioral interviews

Yardstick aspires to help everyone

  • Simplify the hiring process

  • Base decisions on data instead of our intuition alone

  • Create fair & just hiring practices

  • Provide visibility into candidate interviews
