Arc launches HireAI to make finding software developers easier

Arc, the job platform created especially for software developers looking for remote positions, wants to facilitate recruitment with the launch of HireAI. Powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4, HireAI does much of the manual work of finding the right candidates among the 250,000 developers on Arc, including CV screening and mass outreach.

To use HireAI, companies upload their job description. Then it provides a shortlist of candidates, refining preferences with each match so companies get more accurate results.

Arc Founder and CEO Weiting Liu, who also launched Codementor, a distance learning platform for software developers, told TechCrunch that the “signal noise ratio” is particularly high when these are global remote candidates. “Since launching Arc in 2019, we’ve seen countless hiring managers and recruiters frustrated with the time it takes to sift through hundreds of resumes and find the right candidates,” he said. declared.

Prior to HireAI, companies using Arc had to submit their job requirements by filling out a detailed job form. Next, Arc used its own machine learning algorithm to find the best candidates, or the candidates applied for positions themselves. The platform’s recruiters would further screen candidates for its clients to review. HireAI, which employers can accept or decline (or use in tandem with manual screening) automates the onboarding process by generating job descriptions through “conversations” with an AI recruiter and providing instant matches.

By streamlining or automating tasks such as writing job descriptions, screening candidates and outreach, AI-powered tools like HireAI free up time to focus on more strategic parts of recruiting, Liu said. . This includes meeting with candidates to see if they are a good cultural fit, building relationships, and offering positions with everyone’s career goals in mind. Liu added that AI-powered tools like HireAI have the potential to encourage diversity, equality and inclusion because recruiters don’t see the age, ethnicity or gender of candidates until they didn’t get the best matches.

“It’s important to note that while AI tools can handle many of the responsibilities traditionally assigned to recruiters, they are not intended to replace human recruiters entirely,” Liu noted. HireAI was soft-launched internally on Arc a few days ago, and Liu said early data shows companies are twice as likely to interview developers who matched with them through HireAI.
