Company Description

Who we are

Knockri is on a mission to diminish unconscious bias in hiring with our behavioural skills assessment. Using Machine Learning, we evaluate the transcripts of structured behavioural interviews to identify and classify relevant behaviours that predict non-technical skills and job performance. We work with Fortune 500s including Shopify and IBM to adapt our system around their brand, business competencies, and job requirements. Our assessment helps shortlist job candidates at the top of the hiring funnel, providing fairness and equality across all applicants, and dramatically improving hiring efficiency while eliminating the human bias in employee selection.
