On-demand phone interview platform Qualifi has raised $4.5 million in an oversubscribed funding round led by MXV Capital and Rally Ventures, according to a statement from the company.

Qualifi’s platform helps companies hire faster and more efficiently by automating the whole hiring process, from sourcing candidates to scheduling interviews to making offers. The platform is used by companies of all sizes to hire for a variety of roles, including customer service, sales and technical positions.

The company is based in Indiana and was founded in 2019 by Darrian Mikell, Devyn Mikell, DeSean Prentice, and Keenan Jaenicke. It wants to change how high-volume recruiters screen candidates by reducing friction, mitigating bias and reducing the time it takes to schedule and co-ordinate interviews so recruiters can appoint the best candidates before their rivals do.

The funds will be used to accelerate the company’s growth by expanding its team, further developing its platform and investing in its products, sales, and marketing. It wants to build a high-volume hiring proposition by making new industry partnerships to be able to address pain points experienced by recruiters.

The funding round also included participation from existing investors, including Correlation Ventures, Next Coast Ventures, and Sierra Ventures.

“We are thrilled to welcome such a diverse group of strategic investors who closely align with our next stage of growth,” said Qualifi’s CEO and co-founder, Darrian Mikell. “This round of funding allows us to further develop our technology to alleviate the pain points of hiring on recruiting teams globally.”
