AI enabled recruitment marketplace for lawyers gets seed funding
The closed-door legal recruitment marketplace has been in operation since 2018 to pair candidates with JDs on a rule-based matching system.
The company will utilise the fresh funds towards completing the development of its software-as-a-service (SaaS) self-learning recruitment search engine that will have the ability to search through large amounts of data (Curriculum Vitae/Job Description) to give job-seekers and end employers results based on key hiring parameters, while taking into account their individual preferences.
RecruVia’s clients include Uber, Khaitan & Co, Integreon, IndusLaw, Phoenix Legal and others, according to a release.
Sachin Sukumar, founder, RecruVia said, “Our venture has a single aim – to make the search for the right legal candidate or job easy and provide a ‘fit for purposeness’ to those recruiting / being recruited. The development of a machine learning based web-services engine is akin to a Google Maps API at the backend. This would be able to run on our marketplace as well as assist law firms and recruiters in finding the right fit of candidates while sifting through large number of CVs they already have or receive.”
Run by Lawgin Legal Solutions, RecruVia offers data-driven recruitment through its platform www.recruvia.com. The closed-door legal recruitment marketplace has been in operation since 2018 to pair candidates with JDs on a rule-based matching system and it is now developing Machine Learning (ML) based engine to sharpen its search as well as diversify its’ offerings to the legal talent search market in India.
The startup was founded over three years ago by Sukumar, and until this round, was bootstrapped. The seed investors are a clutch of individuals from San Francisco, UAE and India who have not just invested money, but also committed to lending their respective expertise in data science, technology, law, and internet marketplaces.
