Data center strategy

Security, availability, and operational efficiency are all cornerstone elements of Recruitee's data center strategy and ISO 27001 certification. Therefore, Recruitee uses some of the world’s leading providers for its main server infrastructure: Google Cloud Platform (Google) and Amazon Web Services (Amazon). All services provided by Google and Amazon have received multiple certifications:

  • ISO 27001, 27017 and 27018

  • SOC 1, 2 and 3


The above certifications are the leading certifications for cloud hosting providers and data centers in terms of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. You can expect on-site security staff, camera systems, access control, regular security tests, high redundancy, and a lightning-fast global network that’s built to host the world’s most important websites. Google and Amazon allow us to benefit from some of the same technology that powers their own websites.

Recruitee has performed a risk analysis to understand the risks of your data being included in mass surveillance and being subject to warrants from non-EU governments. One of the measures that we have taken is that we strictly host data in the European Union. The following Amazon and Google locations are used by Recruitee:

  • Google’s data centers in Frankfurt and Berlin, Germany (europe-west3), used for our main infrastructure (e.g. database servers and web servers)

  • Amazon’s data centers in Frankfurt, Germany (eu-central-1), used for file hosting and for storage of encrypted backups

  • Amazon’s data centers in Ireland (eu-west-1), used solely for our video answers feature

Our choice of data centers makes Recruitee one of the leading partners for GDPR compliance in recruitment tech.

Wherever your data is stored, Recruitee makes sure that your data is always yours. We never sell candidate data or any other information you collect. Contact support to learn more about how to export your data.


In addition to great data centers, our GDPR features can also help you solidify your GDPR compliance.
