Product Analysis

  • Heritage: Hiretual’s founders spent two years investing in R&D of deep learning and NLP engine before launching the AI-powered platform in 2017. Hiretual, originally HireTeamMate, Inc., was founded in 2015 by Steven Jiang and Xinwen Zhang following their departure from Samsung’s R&D team. During their time at Samsung, Steven and Xinwen were heavily involved in hiring their staff. After major frustration with the time it took to make hires, they set out to address the sizable gap between where recruiting was and how good it could be. In 2015, they quit Samsung and started Hiretual. Before building this technology, Steven and Xinwen opened a small recruiting agency for six months to learn from the actual practice of sourcing and recruiting candidates. In 2017, after two years of research and development of deep learning and natural language processing, Hiretual launched the world’s first AI sourcing technology based on the world’s largest talent knowledge graph. In the same year, they crossed 100,000 users. A year later, Hiretual would launch its engagement capabilities and Market Insights feature. In 2019, Hiretual launched the world’s first intelligent Talent Pipeline. In 2020, Hiretual added to its AI Sourcing capabilities with the world’s first solutions for healthcare and technology recruiting. In 2021, Hiretual launched its Talent Data System with 30+ ATS integrations, allowing companies to refresh their ATS and rediscover talent with two-way integrations between Hiretual and their hiring platform.
