hackajob, a London, UK-based tech startup which helps technical talent find their next job through human expertise and AI, secured £5m (approx. $6.7m) in series A funding.
The round was led by AXA Venture Partners, with participation from Downing Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Imran Akram of AXA Venture Partners, will be joining hackajob’s board.
The company intends to use the funds to continue building out their proprietary technologies for recruitment, expanding the client and candidate relation teams, and investing in marketing.
Founded in 2014 by CEO Razvan Creanga and COO Mark Chaffey, hackajob allows companies to hire technical talent based on skills rather than backgrounds.
With hackajob, clients are automatically matched with curated candidates from their talent pool of over 60,000 technical people and can view their code or cloud infrastructure implementation alongside their profile.
From there, companies can manage interviews, integrate with existing ATS’s and ask candidates to complete specific challenges unique for their company, built by hackajob.
Over 1,000 companies such as Argos, Capital One and Apple have used the platform.
