Describe what makes your company unique
Workable provides small and medium-sized businesses with cloud-based software for recruitment management. Through our platform, businesses have the ability to publish job openings online, accept applications, evaluate resumes, schedule interviews and eventually hire the best candidates while saving time and money.
Describe what being an entrepreneur means to you
Entrepreneurship for us, is all about innovation and vision. It is about being creative and making an impact when you give a radical solution to a “problem” that was not solved until then. It is the willingness to work hard, question things and keep moving forward. You have to keep your eyes open for opportunities and when the time is right, seize the chance.
How is your vision different today, compared to when you started the company?
We are already among the most popular recruitment management tools and we hope that we will soon become the only one. We plan further expansion into the Asian market. We invest heavily in new technology and especially artificial intelligence. We do not believe that in the near future the final choice of the most appropriate candidate will be made by a computer, but artificial intelligence can provide important help for the end user to make the right choice.
What are the three traits of the ideal employee for you?
Besides technical skills, which is obviously quite important in the tech industry, we are looking for employees that will also become our collaborators. We want to share our ambitions with team oriented professionals who are willing to work hard to achieve their goals. We are really proud that prominent professionals have chosen to work with us and we reward them through continuous training and perks.
