What we offer

What Blackdog is really about can be summed up in three words stability, reliability and training. The heart and soul of Blackdog’s technology is real hands on recruiting experience. However innovations not just a static point in time. The embracement of “Cloud” computing is the most recent example. However BlackDog’s focus has been and still has been on training that blends recruiting know how with innovative products.

A few words about us

25 years serving recruiters and staffing professionals

Founded in 1980, our organization originally developed custom UNIX applications for an in-house recruiting agency as well as for other firms. Using our first-hand knowledge of the recruiting industry, we continued to enhance our applications and eventually packaged a complete recruiting software solution that is now Gopher. Because of its robust features, affordability and speed, Gopher quickly gained acceptance amongst firms small to large. In 1990, the company ended all custom development to focus on the growing popularity of its Gopher line of products.
