Who we are

At Emi Labs we are transforming the recruiting experience into an easy, human and fair process, for both candidates and companies with high-volume job openings. Emi, our main product, is an A.I. recruitment assistant that enables companies to engage in a conversation with each applicant to detect interested and qualified individuals.

We save recruitment team’s time by automating steps such as sourcing, screening and scheduling. This enables recruiters to reach hiring targets by focusing on qualified candidates and giving them a tailored experience. On the other hand, all candidates are taken into account for the job and are given an equal opportunity by being assessed on their actual fit for the job.

We were part of Y-Combinator's Winter 2019 batch and Khosla Ventures led our Seed Round.

What you'll be doing

You will be working with the team that designs and implements Emi's industry-leading conversational experience and job position evaluations.

As a Conversation Designer, you will be in a unique position to create and implement state of the art conversations that will have a direct impact on our vision of democratizing access to job opportunities. You will be responsible for understanding our client's needs and translating them into our product so that we can find the best candidate for each opening.

You will work on multiple projects simultaneously, feel comfortable dealing with multiple stakeholders, and be able to think strategically when reviewing design work.

Doing things that don't scale will be a core part of the job. We are building a product for a category that doesn't exist. We believe that the best way of creating scalable processes around the delivery of our solution is by being hands-on, learning, designing based on that experience and then executing in-scale with the lessons learned.

- Ownership & Proactiveness
