It’s 2017, and finding a job still sucks. Our mission is to change that.
Our founders come from backgrounds in talent management, data-driven finance, and tech. We also remember what it was like to search for a job after college. We’re combining our insights from these experiences with data on candidates, companies, jobs and predictive indicators of success to do one very simple thing: match a candidate to a job. The result? The best damn job placement site in the world.
We’re still in beta mode, though, so if it isn’t the best damn job placement site in the world yet, we want to hear how you think it could be.
