Inbound Data Segmentation

We highly recommend creating a Source of profiles and a Board of jobs for each unique channel of data (each site, app, or server), though this isn’t required.


Sources are a family of Connectors that simplifies profiles, resumes, and CV data collection from any website, database, or tool.


Boards are a family of Connectors that simplifies job offers data collection from any website, database, or tool.


Destinations are a family of Connectors that simplifies sending profiles and job offers data to any website, database, or tool.

API Clients

We’ve developed API clients for the most common programming languages and platforms. These clients are advanced wrappers on top of our REST API itself and have been built in order to help you integrate our service within your apps. For example, you might choose to use our PHP client for your indexing logic, while your front-end relies on our JavaScript client. All our clients are open-source and available on Github.



Allows to collect and transform any stream of first-party data via webhooks (Workflow CATCH) or CronJob (Workflow PULL) into HrFlow.ai . With just ten lines of Python code, you can build any integration —no additional infrastructure required. Scale from point-to-point integration to complex workflows, using conditional logic and processing billions of tasks in just milliseconds.


Main use cases of Workflows

Automations with custom Business logic, Syncing profiles and jobs between apps automatically.


An item is the profile or job data you're providing into the platform. Items are indexed so that they can be used for Searching, Scoring, and Reasoning. You can also add your own tags and metadata to Items to use for Searching or when training your own Scoring Algorithm.


Indexing collects and stores your Items in a Connector to facilitate fast and accurate information retrieval.
Indexing happens automatically every time you add new Items to a Connector.


Indexing can be a prerequisite

Indexing is mandatory for storage and enables Searching, Scoring, Reasoning, and algorithm training


Resume Indexing after Parsing

When you Parse a resume or upload it to a Source, it is automatically indexed by default unless you change the default parameter to false.
