There is a need for an online job search portal, which has engaging, well designed, focussed where seekers can know in and about a brand, and vice-versa, JobSpire, a visual job search platform started with that very motive now enters beta version with USD 262K in seed funding led By Purvi Capital, Nikunj Jain And Others.
The funding will be used towards scaling the team, focus towards building entirely new concept – Human Metadata Index graph that we will use to standardize ratings on every applicant on Jobspire and building referral-only premium recruiting tool, Premium Select.
The company was founded by Varun Mayya, Kartik Luke, Sandesh Kini and Mohak Dhingra who have solid tech and sales backgrounds.
JobSpire is a visually dynamic job searching platform, in stark contrast with currently available ‘listicle-type’ job portals which look, on a personal note, as mundane as the companies listed on them. The type of companies JobSpire primarily lists are startups which is one big differentiating factor that makes the entire platform all the more interesting as compared to others.
According to its founder,
“We are also the only startup in India to offer a premium, human touch to recruitment.”
The key differentiator is the manual algorithmic curation, which solves the DNA-matchmaking candidate and ensures that top candidates get offers only from premium companies instead of random ones.
Upon analysing the top 22 job roles in India, Jobspire’s team developed quick, 5-minute subjective challenges for each job role to give recruiters a mental snapshot of every candidate. The startup even introduced an audio verification system that helps candidates bypass their first round of interviews online.
JobSpire is currently working with 91 startups, producing 18 interviews a week and has nearly 30-50 signups daily on the platform.
