London interview intelligence platform raises $6m in seed funding round
A London interview intelligence platform has announces its $6m seed funding round, bringing the total amount raised to $7.6m.
Metaview’s platform enables fast-scaling businesses to harness data to strengthen and optimise the most important part of the hiring process - the interview.
The round was led by Vertex Ventures US, alongside additional investors Fly Ventures, Seedcamp, Village Global, PrimeSet, Moving Capital (Uber alumni fund), and Palumni (Palantir alumni fund).
Customers include Robinhood, Anduril, AngelList, and Hudl. The company will use the funding to develop its product offering, accelerate market expansion across Europe and the US, and triple team size over 2022.
Founded by Siadhal Magos and Shahriar Tajbakhsh, product and engineering leads from Uber and Palantir respectively, Metaview’s platform records and transcribes interviews, then provides unique data alongside automated training tools to help individual interviewers and broader hiring teams improve.
Siadhal Magos, co-founder and CEO of Metaview, commented: “Our mission is to power hiring decisions with truth. The best companies know it’s their people that determine their ability to succeed as an organisation. Yet for the longest time they’ve been recruiting based on guesswork, memory, and bias.
“Previously, any data that was used to improve hiring performance only ever measured the symptoms, never the causes. Now we can bring transparency to the previously opaque interview process, and use technology to improve the most important moments in hiring.”
