Engage Talent, a Charleston, S.C.-based AI software company for companies to identify and engage with passive candidates, raised $3m in funding.
Backers included Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, Refinery Ventures and Grand Ventures.
The company will use the new funds to further develop its predictive recruiting technologies and to expand its science/R&D and success teams.
Led by CEO Joseph Hanna, Engage leverages AI to predict people’s job security and likelihood to change jobs based on their professional background, career progression, and events impacting their companies and industries. Recruiters use Engage to conduct market research, identify talent pools to target, and build a pipeline of passive candidates who are more likely to engage in a job change discussion.
Customers include Dell, Hilton, Allstate, Transamerica, Yoh, and Hudson RPO, among others.
