HireLogic has established a new standard for interviewing candidates and filled a gap in the hiring process. The solution leverages conversational analytics and AI to listen to interviews and provide objective candidate insights for better hiring decisions. Simply by inviting HireLogic to listen to any in-person or remote interview, hiring managers or recruiters can go beyond transcriptions and note-taking to understand how much of the job description the conversation covered, detect candidate attributes such as aspirations and leadership experience, and even provide valuable data for interviewer coaching such as potential question bias.

“I have experienced first-hand how much time and money organizations spend interviewing candidates, the lack of objective data being gathered, and the impact quality of hires has on performance,” said Joe Landy, lead Series A investor and former co-CEO of Warburg Pincus. “We are already seeing the transformational impact that AI and GPT3 is having, and expect to see this affect all sectors including HR. What Gong did for sales intelligence, HireLogic is doing for interview intelligence in a similarly large market, and their customers are already experiencing the benefits. I look forward to working with the HireLogic team to transform interviewing and capture this opportunity.”

HireLogic has developed advanced AI and machine learning capabilities specifically focused on the hiring domain, using a combination of proprietary and third-party best-in-class services.

The solution goes beyond simple keyword recognition to efficiently determine speaker roles, infer intent to recognize job functions and candidate characteristics, and even detect question bias for coaching and compliance. In addition to supporting video platforms such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams, HireLogic offers a companion app that can listen to any in-person or telephonic meeting, providing full coverage for all interview modes. To better prepare interviewers, HireLogic can optionally auto-generate smart questions for any position, leveraging a combination of OpenAI (GPT-3) and HireLogic capabilities.

Individuals and hiring managers who use HireLogic can expect to see immediate benefits in the form of increased productivity, with instant automated insights that enable faster, collaborative decision-making, and increased candidate engagement through better interview preparation, structure, and consistency. HR teams and organizations can augment decision-making with objective data, avoid memory bias, and detect potential question bias for coaching and compliance purposes. HireLogic does not stack rank candidates, screen them, or otherwise replace human decision-making, to minimize other forms of AI bias.

HireLogic has seen significant usage growth across its customer base within six months of public launch, listening to thousands of interviews a month and analyzing over half a million interview minutes. For businesses that use applicant tracking systems (ATS), HireLogic offers optional plans that include integration with popular ATS’ to automatically import job description and candidate information.
