Our story

Starred was founded by Lars van Wieren in Amsterdam in 2013. Joined soon after by Managing Director Mark Berendsen, the company was set to grow with some core product principles.

Having worked together previously at Google, they came together to change the way businesses handle feedback. No more boring surveys that no one wanted to fill out, Starred was going to be respondent-first. The solution needed to provide businesses feedback data which was directly actionable.

In 2018 we decided to focus our efforts on bulding the perfect feedback solution for Talent Acquisition and HR Professionals, what we’ve called People Experience. We strongly believe that Candidate Experience and Employee Engagement are key for the sustainable growth of any forward-thinking business, and have made it our mission to provide people with a voice to improve every stage of their work life.

Wind forward to the present day and Starred SaaS solution of choice for Talent Acquisition and HR teams across the globe. With a growing team of 30+ from our office in Amsterdam and have been recently selected by the Financial Times as one of Euorpes Fastest Growing companies in 2020. There’s a path ahead of rapid growth and human-first feedback culture.

About Starred

Culture

We believe our progress as an organisation has as much to do with how well we live our core values as it does with setting and meeting smart performance goals. It’s all about this golden balance – we’re true believers that an engaged, happy workforce accelerates our mission. We hire people we trust, and trust the people we hire. Trust extends right through our culture and it’s reflected in our approach to flexibility and rewarding our team. We expect our people to act in Starred’s best interest. For us that means taking ownership of your output.

Values

A lot of companies will tell you they have values. But how well do they live them? At Starred we give each other recognition both online and offline based on how we see one another embodying the values in our work and in our collaboration. Good leadership has everything to do with embodying the values. The 5 core values came together based on everything we saw was great about our team, what we need to support our mission, and the idea that these principles would pave the path of our growth and every team member’s development.
