Connectifier is a powerful messaging solution for connecting with candidates.
Connecting people and jobs is fundamental to our economy and our lives, and we think it's time to build some intelligence into today's employment platforms. We've begun by building Connectifier to give recruiters a complete view of prospective job candidates and a way to connect with those candidates.
Connectifier was founded by two ex-Googlers who received numerous recruiting calls every month while interviewing dozens of candidates for the teams they led and were a part of. Having seen problems in the recruitment process firsthand, the team at Connectifier is focused on helping companies and recruiters with the hiring challenges they face.
What We Do
Connectifier helps recruiters contact exceptional job candidates by leveraging a constantly growing database of more than 400 million candidates. Connectifier Auto Search is a web browser plug-in that pops up whenever a user views a profile on a social site to provide additional information like email addresses. Connectifier Search allows users to search Connectifier's candidate database directly.
Who We Are
Connectifier is an AI company. Our goal of building intelligence into employment platforms requires a heavy focus on distributed systems, information retrieval, and scaling. As such, our team draws from places like Google, Amazon, Stanford, Microsoft Research, NASA, Caltech, Carnegie Mellon, and Berkeley National Lab.
