Hirect is a chat-based recruiting app that serves startup founders, CXOs, small business owners to directly chat and hire candidates, 10x faster.

The recommendation algorithm is not new for the modern apps or platform business. However, with a chat feature and mobile-first strategy, Hirect is creating a new engine for job marketplace - just like the engine behind the refreshing user experience of Tiktok. Based on the algorithm, Hirect can not only gives a better distribution and matching of jobs and candidates list, giving more exposure to small business, breaking the domination of the top 10% of the giant companies from the traditional paid-ads promotion model but also react instantly to users' feedback and activities.
