Cape Town-based startup Stiint-it has launched a platform it says “uberises” the job market by removing potential bias and sharing revenue.
Stiint-it is a private labelling recruitment platform that empowers clients, agencies, and candidates to work and earn together. Its skills-matching technology aims to eradicate traditional barriers for job seekers.
Professionals are fully vetted and verified, while the platform removes unconscious bias and discrimination from the recruitment process by listing profiles anonymously. Searches are 100 per cent matched with profiles to perfectly align job seekers’ needs with the opportunity at hand.
Candidates remain in full control of their data and interactions on the platform, and fully vetted profiles act as a dynamic curriculum vitae (CV) or ongoing career track record where each new entry is automatically verified as soon as it is added.
Stiint-it also changes recruitment from a cost centre into a profit-generating business asset via a circular revenue model. Ultimately, private labels earn money from largely under-utilised databases, and candidates are rewarded each time their profile is unlocked. As a result, candidates are incentivised to sign up.
“Existing recruitment platforms have democratised access to candidates,” said Lino Brogneri, founder and CEO of Stiint-it. “We’re taking this a step further by giving users access to fully verified information only. The current cost of misinformation and misalignment in recruitment is in the billions of dollars. We’ve made it our mission to ensure that the data on the platform is true and accurate.”
