Cielo Invests in Talent Acquisition Technology Start-up Talentify

BROOKFIELD, WI – January 11, 2018 – Cielo, the world’s leading strategic Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner, is making a significant investment in Talentify, a talent acquisition technology company that believes there is a simpler way to leverage technology in recruiting experiences.

Talentify is centered on quickly connecting matched applicants with hiring managers, while creating more meaningful interactions in the process. Flux by Talentify is the firm’s revolutionary first product; a results-as-a-service technology that automatically attracts, screens, and schedules high-volume hourly candidates for interviews with hiring managers. Flux by Talentify combines recruitment marketing, human psychology and experience design to deliver dramatically different results – a better velocity, quantity and quality of candidate.

“If we’re doing this right, and our investors like Cielo believe we are, our products will free up the people who work in talent acquisition to actually work with talent. We will nudge them to take the next necessary action, right when it is appropriate to achieve optimal outcomes,” says Talentify founder Othamar Gama Filho. “But it is about more than being able to reallocate precious time, our consumer-grade, mobile-first experience and programmatic sourcing capability also drives down cost by improving conversion to hire rates.”

“Cielo invested in Talentify because our vision of ‘boldly changing the way the world views talent’ is perfectly aligned with Othamar’s brilliant approach to revolutionizing talent acquisition processes for distributed, repetitive hiring,” said Sue Marks, Cielo’s Founder and CEO.

Established in 2015 as a merger of an international recruitment company, a mobile development company and an online media company, Talentify formally entered the U.S. market in 2017. Talentify will continue to operate as an independent business under founder Othamar Gama Filho, and will partner with Cielo’s leadership team and a strategic board of advisors to drive new value into the recruiting market.
