CINCINNATI, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- tilr, an app-driven company that connects qualified workers to jobs via a unique algorithm focused on one's skills instead of job title, celebrates their first six-months of market release by acquiring their first 10,000 active community members.
In making the announcement, Carisa Miklusak, Co-Founder and CEO of tilr, said, "This is a major milestone, not just for our business but for the human capital industry. tilr launched into the open market September 6, 2016 and its strong and steady growth trajectory illustrates that algorithmic hiring provides a more efficient and effective way to recruit. We are improving work for everyone - workers and employers alike."
Summer Crenshaw, tilr's Co-Founder and COO, added, "Selecting the city of Cincinnati, and the Tri-State area, for tilr's launch has undoubtedly been instrumental in tilr's early market validation. tilr is beyond thrilled with its new home in downtown Cincinnati. Our humbling community reception and contagious growth are equally appreciated, as we continue to pioneer a better way for workers and companies to connect."
Ending 2016 with approximately 6,000 active users and 4,500 shifts, tilr's adoption continues to grow in a compounding fashion, having doubled in size in the first few weeks of 2017. Now, in the 10th week of the year and tilr's 6th-month anniversary, tilr has generated a total of over 20,000 downloads, serves 10,000 active users, and has booked 75,000+ shifts for workers or over 562,000 hours. Users have input more than 300,000 skills into the iOS and Android platforms, broadening the labor pool available to companies by matching a worker's unique skill profile to a company's job requirements. Rather than using the traditional job search match practices of job title, resume and keyword search technology, tilr's proprietary algorithm matches a more complex set of factors through a less complex, in fact--automated--process.
tilr offers a first to market and unique service that is not offered by existing companies. Differentiators include:
- Matching on skills allows tilr to allocate talent differently and more efficiently, creating new labor pools for employers, not otherwise found by using traditional technology.
- tilr's algorithmic hiring process removes subjectivity and potential discrimination from recruitment.
- tilr's solution reduces time and cost-to-hire by fully automating the hiring cycle.
- tilr grants workers new levels of access to healthcare, training and financial savings.
The internal tilr team has quickly grown to 25 employees who support tilr's market adoption and expansion. tilr is executing a city-by-city rollout plan with geographic expansion planned for 26 different markets in three years. tilr kicked off its rollout plan early in the New Year with a new focus in Columbus, Ohio. In 2017 tilr will grow throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. In 2018 tilr will move out of the Tri State area offering its marketplace in Texas, Florida and Missouri.
