untapt, the first automated recruiting platform exclusively focused on connecting financial services companies with top tech talent, launches today following a successful beta.
Founded by a team of seasoned financial services technology veterans, untapt makes a once-painful process easy, leveraging a proprietary algorithm to intelligently match companies and candidates. Banks, hedge funds, consulting firms, startups, and others can source the best talent in the industry quickly and affordably, while software developers access a confidential platform to find exclusive career opportunities at top prospects.
“The financial services industry has become increasingly tech driven, creating a tremendous need for great tech talent to help drive innovation, regulatory compliance, and more. Yet with more than 15 million technologists in the world and over 400,000 tech jobs to fill in financial services, there has been no way to easily connect the two,” said Ed Donner, co-founder and CEO of untapt. “Through my own experiences hiring and managing engineers at JPMorgan and other firms, I faced this challenge first-hand. I’m thrilled to have teamed up with some of the top influencers in finance, recruiting, and technology to change the process for companies and candidates alike.”
Despite an abundance of recruiters and tech solutions on the market, only untapt focuses exclusively on the intersection of financial services and technology, where demand is exploding. untapt’s algorithm connects a growing talent pool of highly qualified engineers with top financial services companies both large and small, ensuring the right matches based on factors such as experience, skills, cultural fit, career stage, and more, overlaid with industry-specific analytics. The more companies and candidates use the system, the more it learns and can predict the best fit.
How It Works
Candidates create a profile, then browse opportunities that are a good fit for them confidentially and for free, accessing positions posted only to untapt. Their information is only revealed to hiring managers if they choose to apply. When a match is made, untapt connects companies and candidates directly to close the deal. Companies can quickly identify, shortlist, interview, and hire candidates right through untapt - whether it’s to fill a single position or hire at volume. Both sides can access optional video features to enhance their interaction.
By automating the process and cutting out the middleman, untapt delivers unmatched scalability and efficiency in the recruiting process - at a fraction of the cost. Pricing for untapt is per placement, with volume discounts and a pay-only-for-what-you-hire model - making it a no-brainer for any hiring manager to try.
untapt was founded by Ed Donner, a former Managing Director in technology at JP Morgan, Geoff Massam, a former CIO at Deutsche Bank, and Max Kantelia, an entrepreneur in recruitment and banking
