Based in Toronto, Canada, Kira Talent is an online video interviewing platform that helps employers find better talent faster. Hiring managers simply record their video questions and send them off to candidates. Each candidate response is recorded, so they can be viewed at any time with no scheduling required. This is especially useful when the candidate is in a different time zone – no more early morning or late night international interviews.
Kira Talent lets HR professionals set time limits for responses to simulate in-person interviews and see how candidates think under pressure. They can quickly find their top picks by sorting applicants into Yes, No, or Maybe categories, and invite other team members to share their comments about a candidate directly on their response page.
Other features of the platform include a candidate practice suite, analytics, and welcome and closing videos. Kira Talent was founded by Emilie Cushman and Konrad Listwan.
