Expert-led video interview platform RiseBird announced that it has received an investment of INR 4.1 crores from SAB Holdings. RiseBird is also part of the Microsoft for Startup program and has received INR 1 crore worth Azure credits.
RiseBird helps global talent acquisition teams complete the technical screening process in a highly accurate, fast and secure manner using a marketplace of verified expert interviewers, a video-first interview platform and an artificial intelligence driven behavioral-insights engine.
Talent acquisition heads speed up their technical screening processes using industry tech-experts who monetize their free time by taking live video interviews. Candidates demonstrate their hands-on technical skills to a live expert in a real-world coding environment ensuring a level playing field. RiseBird uses video and audio analysis of the interview to predict the sentiment of the candidate, and combined with the interviewer assessment, provides an interview report that many clients have used to make offers. RiseBird also provides pre/post interview support like intelligent scheduling, automatic coordination, video sharing, recruitment funnel analytics, and clients view it as a full-stack talent assessment partner.
Till date, RiseBird has completed over 10,000 verified video interviews using over 2500 verified interviewers for marquee clients like Mphasis, UST, Global Logic and Cyient to name a few.
