While hiring top-quality talent is every company’s endgame, one of the primary challenges employers face in their path to achieving this is finding appropriate methods to handle an overwhelming volume of applications. Having the right tools to identify and screen prospective applicants and then deliver a great candidate experience is the key to attracting qualified candidates. On the other hand, it is also crucial that the recruitment process offers proper guidance to job seekers when they are selecting their career path. In the past, job boards and headhunters may have been commonly used for recruitment, but such conventional methods are unable to satisfy the demands of today’s recruitment market. Driving innovation in this recruitment methodology, Kalibrr is transforming the way candidates find jobs and companies hire talent. By placing the candidate experience at the center of its efforts, Kalibrr is helping employers attract the best talents. “We believe that recruitment is the business of people, not transactions,” states Paul Rivera, co-founder and CEO of Kalibrr.
Kalibrr is a recruiting platform that serves as a two-sided marketplace with employers on one side and talent on the other. Integrating AI with a fast-growing database of over 18000 companies and three million active job seekers in the Philippines and Indonesia, Kalibrr enables employers to focus on creating strong candidate relationships. What makes Kalibrr fundamentally different as a platform is its strong candidate engagement capabilities. Using Kalibrr, employers and candidates can conduct all forms of interaction pertaining to the recruitment process within a single platform as opposed to the usual fragmented experience involving multiple job boards and multiple channels of communication.

“With Kalibrr, we are trying to automate the recruiting process for an employer,” adds Rivera. As soon as a job post is created for an open position, Kalibrr’s AI algorithm recommends a list of candidates that are most suited for the role and proactively reaches out to them. Since the process of shortlisting is performed automatically, a recruiter can spend more time engaging with talent rather than spending time on mundane tasks such as sourcing, screening, and filtering applicants. Kalibrr also integrates a suite of assessments to its workflow to determine an individual’s skills for a specific job. While candidates can take these assessments to enhance their profile, Kalibrr can use the information to provide better job recommendations that are relevant for a candidate’s skills.
Today, companies across industries are collaborating with Kalibrr for their proven strategy to attract top talents. One such company is Gojek, a Southeast Asian on-demand multi-service platform and digital payment technology group. Over the last few years, the company scaled from a couple of hundred people to a few thousand people. Kalibrr has been their number one source for hiring ever since, and is now being used by the company to fill the most demanding job roles, such as software engineers, data scientists, and analysts.
Currently, Kalibrr has one of the fastest-growing talent databases in Southeast Asia and is on track to become a premier source for Japanese companies looking to bring in Filipino and Vietnamese talent into Japan. Moving forward, Kalibrr intends to enhance the features of its embedded applicant tracking system to compete with other leading systems in the market and transform into a central hub for recruitment activities. The company also has plans for geographic expansion in Vietnam this year, and Thailand thereafter. With several other plans underway, Kalibrr is on a mission to connect companies with their next generation of leaders.
