One of the biggest issues in the tech recruiting world is keeping up with technology, the buzzwords, and keeping up with the terminology. There are a lot of online dictionaries and websites to look up information. Most of the information readily available is very static, meaning they don’t keep up with the changing tech world.

Well along comes the answer “GlossaryTech.” GlossaryTech is the first online; live tech glossary built for recruiters and sourcers. What makes this tool so much better than the others is we have the ability to add terms to it as we learn them. It’s kind of like Wiki for the recruitment industry. It will allow sourcers to research more information on technical positions.

Let’s say we wanted to look up Ruby, as your typing; it is searching in real time. If you do not see what you want, just press enter and get a full list of search results. See below of what Ruby got me.


As you can see, it found six categories of information. If you click on each entry, you get even more information. Of course, you can also print the results, download the results, and share information.

If you have a term that does not appear in the glossary, you have the ability to add it to the index as well, making this an online collaborative tool for all recruiters and sourcers.

In addition to searching for information by the keyword, you can also search in categories. Categories include; IT Technologies, QA, DevOps, Development Methodologies, Software Architecture, Fundamental Programming Concepts, Programming Paradigms, Tools, and General Terms. There is even a “last update notice” that lets you know the last update, the date of the update, and who made the update.

This is an excellent staffing community tool that was long overdue in being created. Oh and I almost forgot it’s FREE!
