Anonymous Recruiting: MeetFrank brings matchmaking app to Germany
MeetFrank, the first anonymous recruiting app, is now available in Germany. In addition, a new financing round for the expansion was completed. Hummingbird VC, Karma VC, and Change Ventures invested one million Euros in the startup from Estonia. In total, MeetFrank has 125,000 active users in Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania, and most recently, Germany. 2000 companies currently use MeetFrank's service to attract new employees through the anonymous recruiting app. Throughout Germany, there are a variety of major companies utilizing the app such as Daimler, Eon, Delivery Hero, SumUp, Blinkist, High Mobility and MyTaxi. Employees sign up anonymously through the MeetFrank app and get suitable job postings based on their qualifications and career aspirations.
"MeetFrank does not collect private information about age, gender, or user origin. Applicants need only state their skills and career goals so the app can suggest matching job postings," says Kaarel Holm, co-founder, and CEO of MeetFrank. "Discrimination based on personal data is thus excluded, and diversity in companies is promoted."
The HR Startup from Estonia was founded in September 2017 and quickly conquered the Scandinavian market. Following Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Latvia and Lithuania, and now the German market. With the German market being added, an additional capital of investors will help: "For us, Germany is the largest and most important market so far. After Brexit, Berlin will be the new startup and tech hub in Europe, so we are currently planning to open another office in Berlin," reveals Holm about the company's future plans. MeetFranks aims to attract 500,000 users and 2,000 corporate customers by the end of 2018 in Germany alone.
At Tech Open Air, Europe's largest interdisciplinary technology festival, which took place in Berlin this June, MeetFrank introduced itself to the international technology scene. During the pre-launch, employees and companies in Germany had the opportunity to use MeetFrank's anonymous matchmaking in practice, for the first time.
The MeetFrank app works as a chatbot and interacts directly with users. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, the app analyzes the needs of users and can propose suitable job advertisements from the pool. If the user is interested in one of the suggested positions, he or she can start a private, anonymous chat with the company to find out more about the position. For users, the entire service is free.
Companies, on the other hand, are not anonymous at MeetFrank. They write out detailed job advertisements, and the app ensures that suitable applicants only see this. Thus, MeetFrank takes over the placement process and helps customers through automatic pre-selection among thousands of potential applicants.
