Knowledgemarker has secured the first-ever AI in Recruitment Benelux Award, marking a significant milestone for the innovative tech tool. The recognition comes as a testament to Knowledgemarker’s exceptional contribution to the field of recruitment, and it highlights the company’s outstanding efforts in its first year of operation. Founder Bas van den Brenk shares his delight in a video-interview.
The announcement was made during the Recruitment Tech Awards ceremony, where Knowledgemarker stood out as the inaugural winner in the AI category. The award acknowledges the impact of Knowledgemarker’s cutting-edge technology on the recruitment landscape and its notable support for the small but dedicated team behind the tool.
” It’s only this year that we went live with our products, and it’s a great compliment to everybody that’s been working so hard at this.”
Expressing excitement and gratitude, Bas van den Brenk, founder of Knowledgemarker, shared their thoughts on the victory. “Winning the AI in Recruitment Benelux Award is absolutely great for us. It’s a big, big support for our very small team. It’s only this year that we went live with our products, and it’s a great compliment to everybody that’s been working so hard at this. In our first year of existence, we are rewarded with this beautiful prize.”
Objective and verifiable
Knowledgemarker’s winning tool converts code repositories on tech platforms, such as GitHub, into expertise profiles, providing a comprehensive overview of a developer’s skills and compatibility with an organization’s tech stack. The tool stands out for its objectivity and verifiability, utilizing actual code for assessment rather than relying on subjective information found on resumes or LinkedIn profiles.
“We understand and interpret coding language, making it objective and verifiable.”
“It’s a language recognition program”, Van den Brenk says. “We understand and interpret coding language, making it objective and verifiable. The principles are the same as with the AI models we are familiar with, but applied to coding language, which makes it very cool.”
Plans to expand
Currently targeting recruitment agencies specialising in IT recruitment, Knowledgemarker has plans to expand its user base to include IT companies and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) within these organizations. Looking ahead to 2024, the company aims to leverage its first year of experience to further refine its tool, enhance its fit within the recruitment process, and accelerate its growth.
