Ensuring talent get their dream job and employers fill their skills gaps fast

FOUND uses the power of data and highly precise AI-technology to create the perfect match between digital talent and team leaders.

OUR AMBITION

Changing how hiring works

The hiring process can be bleak. Job boards prioritise volume over accuracy, leading to talent being overlooked amid overwhelming numbers of applications.

Meanwhile, traditional recruiters cling to outdated practices, relying on subjective judgement, and charging exorbitant fees.
We believe it's time for change.We're dismantling outdated recruitment models using the power of data and technology.

Our approach uses fast, data-driven AI matching and has employers pitch to talent, instead of talent having to apply.

The result? A revolution in recruitment with companies finding the perfect talent, and talent finding their perfect job.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

The roots of innovation

Ranjit and Georg first thought of the idea for FOUND back in 2022 after a particularly frustrating meeting with a company struggling to hire but refusing to rethink its archaic 12-step process; a scenario they’d heard too often in too many boardrooms.

In their postmortem meeting in the uber afterwards they discussed why in a world where it was the norm to call for a taxi on their watch and have it arrive in seconds, was recruitment stuck in a bygone era.

That conversation sparked their big idea. Why not bring the digital customer revolution to hiring? It was then that FOUND was born.
