Clearbit Prospector 1.0

Clearbit Prospector 1.0

May 05, 2016

Finding new leads is a major bottleneck to most companies' sales efforts, and it's not uncommon for orgs like Salesforce to hire hundreds of entry level sales people to manually scour the web for leads and contact info.

We thought that the tedious and time consuming work of contact generation could and should be automated, so we built Prospector - our product to help you find contacts at any company in the world.

Need marketing leads at Zendesk? Lawyers at BP? Data scientists at NASA? Prospector can find them all, and the emails to contact them.

After spending the better part of a year in beta, we're very happy to announce its general release.

How does it work?

The Prospector API let's you programmatically find contacts with just a domain name. You can search by role, seniority, or exact title. Full docs here.

Example: If you want to find people in sales who work at Clearbit, you can send the following.

https://prospector.clearbit.com/v1/people/search?domain=clearbit.com&role=sales

Your results will look like this:

[
  {
    "id": "p_1f567d9b-d355-48fa-8c68-50ad44ee65a4",
    "name": {
      "givenName": "Andrew",
      "familyName": "O'Neal",
      "fullName": "Andrew O'Neal"
    },
    "title": "Head of Growth",
    "email": "andrew@clearbit.com",
    "verified": true,
  },
  {
    "id": "p_05e89eeb-ba4f-49a5-a936-4d69e2b146f7",
    "name": {
      "givenName": "Matt",
      "familyName": "Sornson",
      "fullName": "Matt Sornson"
    },
    "title": "Growth",
    "email": "matt@clearbit.com",
    "verified": true,
  },
  {
    "id": "p_3d80adf1-ddcd-40bd-bdb2-831e04c4bc5c",
    "name": {
      "givenName": "Amit",
      "familyName": "Vasudev",
      "fullName": "Amit Vasudev"
    },
    "title": "Business",
    "email": "amit@clearbit.com",
    "verified": true,
  }
]

We're incredibly excited to finally release the Prospector API publicly. You can start using it immediately via the API, or our Google Sheets integration.

We are also building prospecting into our Salesforce integration. Give us a shout if you're interested in trying it out!
