There are many job matching apps on the market but none are as innovative as the Blendoor app. This soon-to-launch application treats the job matching process like a blind date and removes the applicant's face and name from the process.
Created by Stephanie Lampkin, Blendoor is a mobile app that hides the candidate's name and photo to bypass unconscious bias and to make diversity recruiting in tech companies much easier. Studies have shown that two identical resumes with only a name difference can gain a 100% difference in the response rate. With this job matching app, candidates aren't pre-judged on their appearance, ability, gender, race, military history or sexual orientation as Blendoor's goal is to highlight the information most relevant to the candidate.
Blendoor will go live on March 11th, 2016 at the SXSW digital festival for public beta testing.
