Ed: This looks very interesting but the pitch was a little different to the website when I visited it. I couldn’t quite work out if the app was meant for an employer to use or a jobseeker.
I got the impression from the pitch that this would find me jobs based on an AI powered backend which in theory sounds great but when you register it just seems to be a sophisticated landing site.
After going through the signup process (which was powered by another startup called typeform.com) it now occurs to me that I was just part of someones user validation test.
Hypothesis was can you get someone to signup to your form on the pretext of signing into an application. And doing so on the cheap without building a product just to see if anyone would signup.
New Y Combinator company by the look of it.
Not sure how I feel now, a little used and cheap….
