Our science

We’ve delivered over 19 million interviews to help identify which candidates would be the best fit for a specific job. By combining the traditionally separate interview and assessment steps into one step that is backed by science, we’re improving the experience of candidates, while reducing both implicit and explicit bias in hiring.
