Our client is developing a revolutionary recruiting tool that uses Machine Learning to help companies identify which candidates would be the best fit for their job opportunities. The process promotes equal opportunity, and the engaging, candidate-centric experience allows companies to spend their time more efficiently, reviewing those candidates who are best suited to a given role first, therefore freeing resources that can be used to find candidates who would not ordinarily get a chance to shine.
