March 28th, Startup Grind Shenzhen hosts the founder of Nashangban, a vertical Internet job search engine. Let’s get to know his story and industry insights.
Recently, the Internet vertical job search engine Nashangban closed its A round with 25million RMB, which will be used in product development, team expansion and marketing. In the aspect of fundraising, the major players of the job search engine arena have made impressive performance last year, including Lagou, Lieping, Nashangban, and a few smaller ones like 100offer and Mayizhaopin.
Among them, however, Nashangban is the only algorithm-driven matchmaker between company and talent. It is commonly understood, though, that recruiting for Internet companies as well as startups depends heavily on human factors, such as personalities, previous collaborative experiences, values and such. With algorithms, whether the highly dynamic or even arbitrary process can be simplified or even optimised, let’s hear from Michael for some possible answers.
