Pomello – A Start-up to help you hire for ‘culture fit’

YC-Backed Pomello Helps Teams Determine Whether Job Applicants Will Fit In

A start-up called Pomello would like to help companies hire applicants who match the notoriously unfair “culture fit” criteria. They claim that their start-up is in fact working against this practice:

“Of course, a common criticism of Silicon Valley is that it promotes its own monoculture of nerdy dudes hiring and spending time with others just like them. The team is aware of the stereotype and says that its method actually pushes against that problem. Ke says the questions they ask ‘are less biased than looking at a person’s particular interests and background.’”

I’d like to see them looking past simply asking new questions to critically examining their own data and recommendations.
