Gupy’s AI platform makes for efficient hiring
The startup developed an AI system named “Gaia.”
Now, Gaia’s job is to screen through candidates for an open position. It will then rank them to find the best fit based on factors like the job description, similar profiles, etc. As more companies rely on it, the platform uses machine learning to improve its recruitment criteria and precision.
It also offers a toolbox of other features to make life easier for HR managers and job candidates. Within the platform, a business can build their own page for job openings, establish its stages for recruiting, as well as create job descriptions from templates.

But Gupy wants to take the hiring process completely online. And it plans to use the investment for just that. This goal may have also persuaded Oria Capital to pitch the funds as online services will only continue to garner interest in the future.
That’s chiefly because coronavirus has highlighted the inefficiencies of relying on in-person and physical resources to accomplish basically anything: completing purchases, consulting a physician, or hiring your next software developer.
