Mya Systems (previously known as FirstJob), a San Francisco, CA-based creator of AI-powered recruiter Mya, raised $11.4m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Emergence Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to scale operations.
Led by CEO and Co-founder Eyal Grayevsky, Mya Systems provides Mya, an intelligent assistant that uses conversational AI to improve the application and hiring experience for candidates and recruiters in such industries as retail, light industrial and call center employers.
The assistant leverages proprietary natural language processing and machine learning techniques to automate outreach and communication with job candidates throughout the recruiting process. Mya applies advanced matching algorithms and predictive models to shortlist large applicant pools so recruiters can prioritize their time with candidates most likely to succeed.
Launched a year ago, Mya has acquired large data sets across a range of industries by scaling the technology for some high-volume agency and enterprise businesses including recruiting agencies, and Fortune 500 companies.
