glasssquid.io is an online startup that leverages artificial intelligence in the IT contingent staffing experience. Through cognitive algorithms, our platform takes the guesswork out of the hiring process, and evaluates compatibility between IT professionals looking for contract and contract-to-hire opportunities, and companies looking to fill positions that require specific qualifications. The matching is done based on skills, experience, tech screening results, and other preferences such as location, compensation and work engagement. The key characteristics of our startup in the procurement process are: - We use data-driven, artificial intelligence technology to match the skills and experience of IT professionals to open contingent opportunities. - We exclusively procure IT talents and positions, particularly Java, .Net and web developers. - We procure contingent (contract and contract-to-hire) commitments. - We cater to mid- to large-sized companies, with multiple hiring requisitions. - We are currently serving the New York and New Jersey business markets, with plans to expand to other regions in the US in the future. Our company name is derived from cranchiid squids, which comprise of about 60 species with one trait in common: their transparent nature. This is why they are more popularly referred to as glass squids. At glasssquid.io, our philosophy is total transparency in the contingent staffing process - both in the job hunting and talent acquisition perspectives - providing both contingent opportunity seekers and hiring managers as much information as possible about their prospects. Our methodology mirrors the transparent nature of the cranchiid squids, thus the name glass squid.
