Our Mission

People hate their jobs (70% of Americans according to Gallup) and it’s hard for them to leave because they don’t know what else is out there. We want to bring this down to 0%.

We’re tearing down the old system of resumes and job descriptions, replacing it with AI models that rigorously capture the nuances of open positions and find the ideal candidates for each company. As we grow, we’ll be able to model every job — which means we can then tell every candidate exactly what opportunities are available, based on their skills and interests, at any point in their career.

If we can reduce friction to finding higher impact work, we’ll help people be more productive, feel more fulfilled, and ultimately accelerate human progress.
