Atipica, a San Mateo, CA-based talent discovery engine startup, raised $2m in seed funding.
The round was led by True Ventures with participation from Kapor Capital, Charles Hudson’s new firm, Precursor Ventures, and a number of angel investors including former Yahoo! CHRO David Windley, early Twitter engineer Matt Sanford, and former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao.
Founded in 2015 by tech industry veteran and diversity advocate Laura I. Gómez, who previously held roles at Twitter, Jawbone and YouTube, and also led by recently hired CTO Mike Sela, who led the SurveyMonkey data, Natural Language Processing and machine learning teams, Atipica combines both artificial and human intelligence to enable companies to resurface applicants, analyze trends in their databases and predict future business needs.
Atipica integrates into Applicant Tracking Systems and other applicant databases through APIs.
