New, Proprietary Artificial Intelligence
Makes Measuring Soft Skills in Video Possible
~ New Start-up Yobs brings game changing AI to the market ~

Los Angeles, CA. – The use of candidate videos in the hiring process of large employers is booming. With this rapid expanding use of video technology in recruiting, Fortune 1000 employers and staffing firms are struggling to screen the thousands of videos they receive each month. Yobs, an automated corporate team and job applicant assessment company, has leveraged new, proprietary artificial intelligence to quickly and accurately model existing employee personalities and help companies screen candidates with high-fit profiles for needed roles using their API. 

“More than 80 percent of the largest employers (5,000+ employees) have previously used video in their candidate screening,” Raphael Danilo, Co-Founder of Yobs, said. “Our company has developed cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence that drastically improves employer productivity, while still helping these companies secure the right-fit talent for their teams. We’ve already developed partnerships with Fortune 500 companies and several leading candidate assessment companies across the US and Europe with our API. We believe this plug-in model will be very profitable and benefit from shorter sales cycles as we grow into difference-makers for these companies.”

The team at Yobs, which consists of ex-retailers, leading AI researchers and I/O psychologists, saw this massive flaw in video interviewing and the new hiring model of the Fortune 500s, and turned to AI to build smart automation for their network of employers. Their proprietary AI is able to automate personality assessments from a short video. They are able to complete an accurate and insightful analysis, for example, of hundreds of candidates applying to a job with a video. They do it by capturing hundreds of parameters from a 2-3 min video (facial movements, psycholinguistics, tone etc.) and feeding it into their powerful machine learning-based prediction model.

The next steps for Yobs will be to expand their product offering for customers by finding ways to screen soft skills across large datasets of unstructured data to drastically reduce hiring risk with their AI. For more information on Yobs, visit https://yobs.io.
