An organizational chart can be a great way to visualize any company's structure. Companies and departments are creating org charts by showing who reports to whom. It can help you to understand how that company works and where the important responsibilities lie. Additionally, an organizational chart will help candidates understand the company's structure and how their skills would fit into the organization.


They are offering businesses a platform to create a free public organizational chart with the goal of making their organization more transparent, getting more exposure externally, and operating more efficiently internally. Great people want to work with great people and they are giving companies the ability to use their existing talent to hire more great talent and granting job seekers the ability to meet their future colleagues before even applying for the job.

Org charts

For employees, this type of chart is especially helpful when trying to understand a complex organization or when looking for someone who can help with a task. But understanding a complex organization can be difficult, especially if you are not working within the organization or you do not have someone who can help with tasks. Someone who is knowledgeable about the organization and can help you navigate it can be a valuable resource.

For us recruiters, any organizational charts are a great source of information about talent that is not on LinkedIn.


If you read the book Full Stack Recruiter you will already know how to use various search operators. But if you don’t know anything about search operators, here is a very short intro to give you a basic knowledge of how those operators are working.

site: – Shows results for pages that contain URLs

intitle: – Shows pages with a certain word (or words) in the page title

inurl: – Shows pages with a certain word (or words) in the URL

"search term" – shows an exact-match search. If you are looking for an exact phrase you will need to add it between quotation marks (example: "sales manager")

By using site: operator and intitle: operator you can target specific job titles on the theorg.com website.

For example, if you need to find people with the job title Sales Manager this is what your search string will look like:

Example: site:theorg.com/org/ intitle:"Sales Manager"

X-Ray Search TheOrg.com

As you know how to use Boolean Operators let's find out how to get more information about each company.

The first string you will need is this:

Example: site:theorg.com/org/gitlab/

This string will show you all pages under this URL. If you want to know what the structure looks like for another company just replace the /gitlab/ with the name of the other company.

But we want to target org charts so you will need to add /org-chart at the end.

Example: site:theorg.com/org/gitlab/org-chart

Bear in mind that these are not complete org charts of companies, but they will still give you some idea about the leadership. And it will help you to target specific companies and get a list of all the people in that Org chart.

You can check The Org structure https://theorg.com/org/theorg/org-chart to see what it looks like.

How to Find Out Who Is Hiring

Finding information about your competitors or potential customers can be difficult, but using a specific search string can help you gather all the data you need.

All open roles are under /jobs. By using site: operator with theorg.com/org/*/jobs you will get results with all open roles under this website.

This search string will show you all open roles on that site.

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs

(The asterisk replaces any keyword, in this case the name of the company)

By using inurl: or intitle: search operators you can easily find specific keywords or phrases.

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs inurl:"director of marketing"

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs intitle:"director of marketing"

If you are only using one keyword, you do not need to use quotation marks.

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs intitle:director

This string will help you find all pages that have the keyword Director in their title.

How to Find Roles and People in Specific Locations

You can even target industries or locations, but this might not be always accurate as it always depends on the

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs intitle:Director "Industry Internet"

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs intitle:Director "New York, United States"

Example: site:theorg.com/org/*/jobs intitle:Director "Marketing · Full-time" "New York, United States"

Last Thoughts

When recruiting for a new position, it can be difficult to identify qualified candidates. One way to make the process easier is to create an organizational chart. This will help recruiters see who is responsible for each area of the company and which positions are available.

An organizational chart is a great way for recruiters to target specific people within the company. By understanding where people are positioned and how they interact with one another, recruiters can more easily identify potential candidates. This information can then be used to fill open positions or to better understand how employees work together.

The organizational chart can be used for a variety of purposes such as an executive search or technology recruitment, sales prospecting, or consulting for businesses on how to improve their management and strategic planning. And of course, organizational charts can help you to identify the key players in an organization and their relationships to one another.
