hackajob launches contract hiring service to fill the technical talent gap.
Platform aims to reduce bias.
hackajob, the tech recruitment platform which aims to eliminate bias in the hiring process, is launching a freelance contract service to help businesses recruit the technical talent they need on a freelance basis. It is an extension of the platform that matches candidates with roles based on their skills, not their CVs.
The business say they are responding to a pan-European demand for specialist tech talent, with candidates and employers alike expressing a growing interest for flexibility. It is continuing to revolutionise hiring for technical digital roles, expanding its services to provide businesses with the opportunity to choose between both permanent and freelance hiring, depending on their requirements.
With a view to eradicating unconscious bias from the recruitment process, hackajob’s unique skills-based assessment platform sets it apart from the traditional recruitment agency approach. Its proprietary AI technology assesses candidates on their skills, rather than relying on a CV. This empowers employers to make the best hiring decisions, and avoid bias relating to the race, gender, seniority or age of candidates, that can negatively affect hiring decisions.
With access over 100,000 candidates in the technology space in Europe, hackajob in uniquely able to help companies fill roles for verified technical talent faster than traditional recruiters.
“With recent and longstanding discussions surrounding subjects such as unconscious bias and the gender pay gap, it’s arguable that traditional recruitment is broken,” says Razvan Creanga, CEO & Co-founder at hackajob. “Our new contract hiring offering provides a huge opportunity to embed widespread meritocratic hiring processes and simultaneously equip growing businesses with the talented people they need. A third of our candidates have already expressed an interest in hackajob’s freelance positions and we believe it’s vital to reward Europe’s tech talent with relevant roles to suit their lifestyle.”
hackajob’s newest launch will be available to new and existing clients looking to capitalise on freelance tech talent across a wide range of industries. hackajob has previously worked with companies such as Apple, Argos and Vodafone and more than 100,000 highly skilled technology experts have signed up to the platform.
