Recruiting talent has always been a tough nut to crack. And the pandemic proved to be one such trigger that has spiked unemployment rates globally.

In this edition of Founder Thesis, Akshay Datt speaks with Raj Das, Co-founder and CEO, Hirect India, the country’s first chat-based hiring app. He is an alumnus of IIT Bombay and has worked as a product manager before starting his entrepreneurial journey.

As the pandemic has started to phase off, the hiring has peaked, especially in the high-growth start-up. In an attempt to create a Tinder-like platform for job search and recruitment, Raj started Hirect in March 2020, which enables candidates to directly connect with founders and HR managers. And within two years, Hirect has over 60k verified recruiters and 5 million app downloads and has expanded its operations to U.S. and Singapore.

Tune in to this episode to hear Raj speak about how Hirect is working towards simplifying both search and hiring processes through its AI-based platform.
