Humanly has raised $800,000 from investors including TMD Ventures, a venture firm led by DocuSign co-founder Tom Gonser, Gusto CFO Mike Dinsdale, and Kinetica CFO Dean Neese. HR veterans from Amazon and Microsoft also invested. Humanly’s AI technology helps companies screen job candidates, schedule interviews, run reference checks, and more. The idea is to reduce the time it takes to find talent and provide a better experience for potential new employees.
“Companies are turning to automation like never before,” said Humanly CEO Prem Kumar. “We believe screening should not be about screening candidates out, but about screening great candidates in”
