How it works



We’ll match you with relevant BDR video pitches using our AI algorithm. You can also proactively search through our video pitch library to find top, diverse and driven BDRs.



Connect and arrange a discovery call with top BDR candidates. Connect, share stories, give advice — and see if they’re a match for your company.



If it's a match, you can refer them to your company, and mentor them through any interviews. Knowing you’ve helped ambitious talent overcome societal barriers and secure their dream role? There’s no feeling quite like it!


What is a Mentor?

Our Mentors are tech professionals who want to make a difference, bring diverse talent into their team, and develop leadership skills in the process.

By becoming a Mentor you can meet, mentor and refer aspiring BDRs who lack that all important professional network.

What’s the criteria to be a Mentor?

At Tangent, we need to ensure that we have the best quality Mentors in our community so we vet every single application - this process can take up to a week.

Our criteria for approval are:
- You work in a Tech company
- You have signed up with your LinkedIn profile
- You are keen to mentor and support others

Will I get support with being a Mentor?

Absolutely! Once you sign up and officially join Tangent you will have access to a wide range of resources that will help you with every step of the Tangent process. We’ve got your back!

How much time do I need to spend as a Mentor?

Being a Mentor is all about being high impact, but low time-commitment! Mentors typically spend a few hours (1-4) a month meeting jobseekers on Tangent. This is usually spent on intro calls and then mentoring calls for any interviews they get to once you refer them. But ultimately, the time you spend is up to you! What's important to remember is that mentoring on Tangent is designed to be short-term (i.e. until someone you're supporting gets hired) but you can decide to spend as much time with the people you meet as you like.
