TestGorilla is an online skills assessment platform making hiring more efficient and less biassed. Already being used by 4,900 companies like: H&M, Oracle, Bain & Company, TestGorilla aims to replace CVs and predict real-world job performance. The platform contains hundreds of scientifically validated tests for role-specific skills like digital marketing and product management, as well as general skills like communication and critical thinking. TestGorilla also allows employers to build in their own custom questions into assessment, allowing candidates to answer using long form texts, code, and even videos.
“The problem is that the CV has been around for nearly a hundred years and it feels like we’re trying to move swiftly across the country in a horse and cart. As we all know, the CV is a very poor predictor of job success. TestGorilla automates candidate evaluation at scale. It reduces the workload and increases the probability of getting the right person for the role. At the same time, it removes barriers and levels the playing field for candidates.” - Notion Partner and TestGorilla investor, Jos White
