Hackajob, a recruitment platform specializing in technology jobs has launched three new features to promote and increase diversity, equality and inclusivity in technology teams.

The first feature uses generative AI to remove bias from job descriptions. Employers can upload job descriptions to the Hackajob platform. The platform then uses AI technology to scan and assess the content, creating suggestions for more inclusive language. Employers can then implement suggested changes, ensuring their recruitment process are free from bias and appeal to a wide range of candidates.

Data is used to inform products that help employers improve diversity, equality and inclusion (DE&I) objectives. When they join the platform technology candidates are given the option to disclose diversity information and around 80% choose to do so, according to the company. This candidate DE&I data is kept confidential and is not disclosed to employers. When creating a job post, employers can select their DE&I objectives and Hackajob prioritizes matching candidates with these characteristics, along with their skills and other important criteria.

The third feature is an insights platform that provides DE&I performance data throughout the hiring process, allowing employers to measure the impact of their new job descriptions, brand presence and sourcing objectives at every stage of their hiring funnel.

The overall aim of the new features is to allow companies to improve by utilizing measurable data insights and to get statistically significant opt-in DE&I data to inform and improve their hiring processes.

The company has offices in New York, London and Romania and recently raised $25 million in Series B funding to continue its U.S. expansion and to build its full stack technical hiring platform.
