myInterview, a Sidney, Australia- and Tel Aviv, Israel-based smart video interview platform prioritizing personality in the hiring process, raised $5m in seed funding. The round was led by Aleph, with participation from previous investors Entrée Capital and SeedIL Ventures.
“The way companies recruit talent is outdated and doesn’t provide the necessary level of insight into applicants required by HR professionals,” said Benjamin Gillman, CEO and Co-founder of myInterview. “A video is worth a thousand resumes. By utilizing video interviews, we help businesses prioritize personality and cultural fit, optimizing the screening and selection process by ensuring that the applicants who are the best fit are moved to the head of the line. We use video in so many facets of our lives – recruiting and hiring are finally catching up.”
The company intends to use the funds to expand sales, product, and R&D teams and to grow in the US and UK markets and around the world.
