The team.

Resume Search.  ‘Find and Engage the People you’ll Hire’

Helping people to get jobs is hard, even in today’s market. Hundreds of thousands of recruiters sift through millions of resumes. Our vision is to use technology to disrupt the status quo and enable recruiters to be more effective. We will use the right tool for the right situation (e.g., machine learning and other automation techniques) to offload the repetitive, time-consuming tasks so that recruiters can concentrate on customer service. For example, our system will match the best candidates to each job, based on both skills and culture fit. Recruiters will receive recommendations, rather than having to manually search. Our business is growing rapidly, both in revenue and number of customers, but we have just started. There are numerous opportunities for building new systems and product features, but we need talented, passionate people working together to make this happen. We are looking to grow our teams with people who share our energy and enthusiasm for creating the best experience for job seekers.
