Exclusive: A French startup, Talent.io to provide jobs for engineers on a global platform

Let’s welcome….Talent.io, a new recruitment companies about take on engineer.Talent.io should not be mistaken as an average agency for headhunting and has opted for a firm, which is more capable of being easily upgraded on demand and will work for both engineers as well as for the tech companies. After three months launch of its beta version in France, the company just embossed $2.2 million(€2 million) from Alven Capital, Elaia PartnersVentech, and other angel investor, such as Oleg Tscheltzoff and Olivier Sirven from Fotolia, Céline Lazorthes from Leetchi and Thierry Petit from Showroomprive.

“We start a session every two weeks,” as told in the reports by the co-founder and CEO Jonathan Azoulay. “We advise and exhibit the candidates that supersede two criteria — they are experienced engineers, and they are ready to swap their jobs. During this session, a group of our clients can visit our website and communicate with our candidates in an effective way.” Therefore, a job offer as well as a range of salary structure is sent to probable candidates. If any of the engineers is interested, then the company conducts an interview for the candidate.

There are certain vital reasons to make Talent.io interesting. Primarily, companies don’t have to start an inconvenient process for approaching a suitable candidate. Once, the HR French working professionals for start-ups sign up the website, they will start receiving an email every other Monday in order to keep a follow up for the new candidates on Talent.io. It takes minutes and completely reduces friction.

Secondarily, initially the candidates are screened by Talent.io. These days, in every two weeks 300 people sign up on the platform, and only 40 out of them are kept for a session by the start-up. Talent.io employees will call each engineer candidate for around 20 minutes individually. In this manner, the companies know that they should mostly look out for the skilled people on the platform.

Apart from those factors, as compared to a traditional French recruitment company, Talent.io is quite cheaper. As previously founded by Azoulay, Urban Linker, and an agency similar to this one usually charges up to 20 to 30 percent of a new hire’s annual salary upfront. Because Talent.io at a time, discover engineers for several companies, it reduces the company’s funding extremely. Each time a candidate is hired, it charges 1 percent of the annual salary per month over the period of 18 months. If an employee is fired or resigns from the company before the stipulated period of 18 months, Talent.io stops charging the amount for this engineer.

Finally, the start-up is reforming the usual process for recruitment. Instead of posting a conventional ad for a job, companies introspect the candidates first and then send them an offer. This is a reason behind why the companies end up hiring an engineer that meet the company’s mission very well even though they weren’t searching for a new hire at the time.

Nowadays, 400 companies in France receive the bi-weekly email by Talent.io, and after each session around 20 percent of the candidates get hired. “We’re impressed by recurrence rate of our clients’,” Azoulay said. “In a span of 20 minutes, our clients can comprehend everything they want, so this is a very small time liability.”

With today’s global funding, the company wants to influence other cities in Europe imminently and start implementing bigger sessions. Talent.io could promptly become an essential platform for tech companies as well as for the engineers looking out for a new job.
