Bangladesh-based startup Interview Master is a globally-focused service for companies to pre-screen job candidates via video interviews. Today the young company has wrapped up seed funding from angel investors at the Indian VentureNursery program that it recently graduated from.
Interview Master is targeted at any size of business, but perhaps works best for medium-sized companies and multi-national corporations to sift through job applicants before actually inviting some in for an old-fashioned face-to-face interview. Interview Master’s video system is automated and evaluates people on a set series of questions. It also helps businesses build up a database of quality candidates.
CEO and co-founder Sanjoe Jose reckons that “the HR industry is looking at ways to reduce the recruitment cycle without affecting the quality of candidates and InterviewMaster successful addresses this.”
Fellow co-founder and CMO Tom Jose (apparently they’re not related) believes that Interview Master’s web-based service can save a company more than $150,000 over the course of hiring 1,000 new staffers.
Interview Master already has some major corporate clients from across the globe, including robotics company ABB (who presumably love automated stuff).
The crew graduated from the VentureNursery incubator, which claims to be India’s first angel-backed startup accelerator, back in April this year.
There’s no word on how the new funding will be used, but Interview Master seems to be fairly easy to scale to new markets.
