Our Story

Refapp is developed and sold by HR tech company Talentwise AB. Founder Philip Sjögren has a background in the recruitment industry where he recognized a need and potential for digitizing work tasks and processes. Philip teamed up with Bengt Rodung and Urban Hedström, founders of IT consultant company Findwise. Talentwise was formed with a mission to provide smart and user-friendly digital services to optimize the recruitment process. Refapp is the first of these digital services. Today, Talentwise AB employs 8 people in Sweden and in Norway.

We wanted to challenge the traditional way of conducting reference checks and simplify the process by letting references answer when and how it suits them best.  

Today, Refapp is an established service used by the largest companies in the staffing and recruitment industry and also growing in both product and service-based companies and the public sector. Every year, more than 100,000 reference checks are made through Refapp.


We feel a great responsibility as thousands of people's jobs depend on our service. Therefore, Refapp is developed based on the latest research available in the field.
