Founder at HireSolve
May 2016 - Present
HireSolve (http://hiresolve.co/) is a recruitment platform that connects recruiters and job applicants through problem-solving. Recruiters can post problems relevant to jobs/roles on the platform. Applicants can apply to jobs by submitting solutions (in text, image, video, code snippets, etc) to the posted problems. If a recruiter likes a solution, the applicant behind the solution will get contacted for further interview. HireSolve ditches resumes. :) HireSolve is founded on a belief that, if you can solve a problem, you demonstrate that you have the necessary skills. This is much more effective than resumes, because resumes can be faked and thus not reliable. By focusing on problem-solving, we can reduce bad hires, saving money and time for businesses, and we cut out the need to screen resumes. We built the demo for HireSolve in the AngelHack KL 2016, and we're selected as one of the finalists from 84 competing teams. We plan to scale HireSolve in both SEA and India at the same time. We believe that HireSolve can impact the entire recruitment industry, and make the hiring more effective and efficient. We're now building the backend, on Ruby on Rails. We're also looking for seed funding. - Finalist at "Pitch Perfect", Google presents E-summit, RV College Bangalore.
