Power to the candidate

Amid the Great Resignation and global hiring challenges, candidates now dictate the terms. We help you improve the candidate experience and reduce candidate drop-off rates during the hiring process.

  • Our assessments take only 20-25 minutes in total to complete, and work just as beautifully on mobile as on desktop.
  • With one click, candidates can share their existing results with you. 20% of candidates invited to take the Alva assessments have shared their results with at least two companies.

Love the fact that I can see my test results! Thank you guys for that! :) On the flip side, my partner is now jealous and wants to perform the test too. Keep up the good work!


Inclusive by design

Research show that diverse teams outperform homogenous teams. Still, women have to submit 30% more applications to get to an interview. People of colour? 50% more applications. We help companies remove bias and create a more inclusive recruitment process.

  • Remove CVs from your interview selection process.
  • Evaluate all candidates on the same objective parameters.

I love the science-based approach to the recruitment process. It reduces the biases and can really give recruiters a reliable prediction on how the candidate will perform at work and how good they will communicate. The most helpful tool for your recruitment process!

Spend time with candidates—not their CVs.

Spot candidates with the best role fit, and quickly move them to the interview stage. 

  • Easily identify who to invite for an interview based on our comprehensive Role Fit ranking.
  • Send automated invitations to your candidates. Integrate with your ATS for full workflow automation and reduce time spent on admin tasks.


We use Alva in all of our recruitments, and it's made such a difference. Today, so many more 'wild cards' get a chance in our processes, and many more junior candidates as well. In some of our recruitments, I never would have managed without Alva. It's been absolutely vital to handle the screening without spending days and days

Stories from our customers

Alva Labs combination of a strong technical product and stellar customer success management has been a key factor in allowing us to recruit with high quality and diversity, despite our hypergrowth over the past two years. The test results are easy to interpret and our managers no longer even considering doing a recruitment without using Alva Labs!

Camilla Bråneryd Global Head of TA

Alva Labs has made hiring easier for us in multiple ways! We have good confidence that the whole product is based on evidence. The mechanic weighting of all the data and the setup with test profiles is brilliant. It makes the decision about what candidates to move forward within the process a lot easier.

Marie Larsson Production Administrator, Arla

Our selection process is now based on something quantifiable and the people we are meeting for first interviews have a higher general level of quality, and are a better match with our job criteria and organization.

Per Tjernberg Talent Acquisition Manager, Knightec

Our Stockholm office was onboarded within a few days. Because the platform is intuitive, we didn’t need to conduct complicated training. We can now objectively and accurately measure the potential of candidates and there has been a noticeable jump in the quality of candidates we’re interviewing.
