TestGorilla has secured $70m in Series A funding, co-led by the London-based venture capital firms Atomico and Balderton Capital. The funding brings the company’s total investment to $80m following previous investment from Notion, Partech, and CapitalT.
“Too often, the recruitment process requires hiring managers to spend hours screening unreliable, incomplete, subjective CVs,” Founder Wouter Durville says. “By replacing resumes with more than 220 scientifically validated tests, our platform helps to eliminate hiring bias, creating a level playing field where every candidate can compete on equal terms.”
The TestGorilla platform enables companies to save valuable time and avoid expensive mis-hires by remotely assessing all the factors that contribute to job success, such as specific role-related skills, language proficiency, cognitive abilities, soft skills, motivation, personality and culture add.
The funding will be used to expand the test library with the existing 220-plus tests due to be joined by a further 100 by the end of 2022. The company also expects to hire 100 new employees in the coming year.
