TrueAbility, a San Antonio, Texas-based technical assessment platform provider, closed a $2m Series A funding.
The round was led by Austin Ventures, with participation from Cloud Power Seed Fund 2013, and seed investors Rackspace (NYSE: RAX) Chairman Graham Weston and co-founders Patrick Condon and Dirk Elmendorf.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its platform technology, AbilityScreen, into new vertical skill sets, increase customer acquisition activities, and add hires in development, marketing, recruiting and HR channel relations.
Led by Luke Owen, Co-founder and CEO, TrueAbility provides AbilityScreen, which allows employers to remotely measure a technical candidate’s ability within the technologies, platforms, vendor certifications and industry standards that their company uses or plans to use.
It tests job seeker’s ability to solve real issues in a live server environment, in contrast to traditional phone screen questioning, written testing, and white-boarding.
