OUR MISSION

We believe that human potential is unduly determined by emblems of status, and the key to building a more inclusive technology industry - and a better tomorrow - is developing more predictive, more meritocratic means of talent assessment.

We want to fix hiring. It's a lofty goal, but it's a necessary one. An economy where people can't find meaningful work, where 70% of US workers hate their jobs, and where prestige and pedigree overshadow potential isn't good for anyone - and if we want to overcome the increased baseline of productivity that automation will soon demand, we need to build a people-centered economy that works for all.

We think this problem has two key components.

  1. Existing systems for assessing talent and attributing value to job candidates are unfair, unscientific, and decidedly not meritocratic. We all know how much it matters to have a flashy education, nice-looking company names on our resumes, and solid referrals. These metrics shouldn't matter, but they do - and for those not lucky or privileged enough to have access to those opportunities early in life, lots of great opportunities to learn new skills and find meaningful work are often unavailable.
  2. Even when candidates are viewed as "qualified", insufficient advising and filtering systems fail to adequately match talent and employers, leading to higher employee churn rates, lower employer and employee satisfaction, and overall reductions in productivity. Silicon Valley especially keeps increasing employee pay and benefits for engineers, but employee satisfaction rates continue to drop, suggesting that another factor may be at play. We believe that matching candidates with companies based on a more holistic set of factors - not just ability, but also mission fit, culture fit, and critical cognitive skills - leads to happier employees and employers.

Our solution, in the short term, is to build a hiring platform that assesses baseline skills through automated means, and identifies standout talent through intelligent matching between applicants and certified experts, in turn enabling those applicants to benefit from the prestige/perceived worth of those experts. We want the advantages of getting a "solid referral" to be accessible to all who are skilled, regardless of background. 

We are much more than a hiring/recruiting company: we're a research company, a technology company, and an analytics company at our core. 

We're a team that wants everyone to have access to meaningful work.

 



Our team is comprised of former founders and senior engineers who've had to navigate the hiring process from both sides (as candidates and as employers), who want to streamline and improve the process as a whole.

We're also members of South Park Commons (read more), a community of technologists and founders based in San Francisco.
