About Criteria

Criteria's mission is to help companies make better talent decisions through a full suite of assessments, interviewing, and talent management tools. 



Our Story

Based in Los Angeles, Criteria was founded in 2006 as one of the first SaaS solutions to provide assessments to the market. Our co-founders, Josh Millet (now CEO) and David Sherman (now COO) created the company with the mission to take powerfully predictive science and make it accessible to companies of all kinds, enabling them to make better talent decisions that drive results.

Since those early days, Criteria has grown rapidly. We have been featured on the Inc. 5000 eight years in a row, we scaled our team from just a few people to over 150, and we have received recognition as a Best Place to Work by Inc. and Built In LA. We’ve also expanded internationally, having acquired Revelian, an Australia-based leader in game-based assessments, in 2020 and Alcami, one of the world’s leading video interviewing providers, in 2021.

While a lot of growth means change, some things remain the same: our customer-centric approach that informs everything we do, and our employee-centric approach towards creating a positive environment that enables our team to be the best we can be.
