"There’s absolutely nothing efficient about sorting through 30,000 resumes by hand. Recruiters spend months evaluating applicants only to have great prospective candidates get lost in the pile." reports John Mannes, writes about machine learning and AI for TechCrunch.  

On the stage of TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield, French startup Riminder made the case for how its deep learning-powered platform could augment recruiters — helping them better surface ideal contenders for job openings.

Riminder generates candidate rankings for open jobs by comparing applicant resumes against resumes from current employees and others in the world with similar job titles. Behind the curtain, Riminder uses a cocktail of computer vision and natural language processing to build profiles of what ideal resumes should look like for specific roles.

Once a resume is processed, recruiters can view its strengths and weaknesses. Riminder makes it easy to see this information visually and to identify market trends, like the most popular schools to recruit from or the most common skills applicants for a certain type of job typically have. The goal is to make sure recruiters have the information they need to judge candidates on both their ability to fit into company culture and their mastery of key skills.

When demonstrating Riminder’s value to a potential recruiting client, the team often runs tests on historical data. This data makes it easy to compare the platform’s automated short list with a human-generated list.
