Netherlands-based rectech startup TestGorilla, whose screening tools remove unconscious bias in recruitment, has raised $70 million in Series A funding.

Co-led by venture capital firms Atomico and Balderton Capital, the new funding round will be used to integrate additional applicant tracking systems (ATS) into TestGorilla, introduce new features, and expand the team, according to an announcement.

Founded by serial entrepreneur Wouter Durville and former Bain & Company partner Otto Verhage in 2020, TestGorilla says more than 5,500 companies have so far used its tools to replace CVs for hiring. To date, it has raised $80 million.

TestGorilla’s screening fee runs from zero to $2,000 per month, depending on how many assessment and tests for cognitive ability, situational judgement and programming and coding skills are used for hiring, according to its website.

Other services include video interviews, tailor-made questions, ATS integration and candidate comparison. It says that some of its most popular tests to measure candidates for job skills and personality involve cultural adaptation, JavaScript, Python, data handling and Ruby.

“By replacing resumes with more than 220 scientifically validated tests, our platform helps to eliminate hiring bias, creating a level playing field where every candidate can compete on equal terms,” said Durville.
