Tech recruitment platform hackajob is launching a freelance contract service to hire talent.

With the aim to eradicating unconscious bias from the recruitment process, hackajob's assessment platform uses AI technology to assess candidates on their skills, rather than relying on a CV.

The new service is an extension of their recruitment platform to now let businesses hire freelance workers from across Europe.

With access over 100,000 candidates in the technology space in Europe, hackajob aims to help companies fill roles for verified technical talent faster than traditional recruiters.

“With recent and longstanding discussions surrounding subjects such as unconscious bias and the gender pay gap, it's arguable that traditional recruitment is broken,” said Razvan Creanga, CEO and co-founder at hackajob.

“Our new contract hiring offering provides a huge opportunity to embed widespread meritocratic hiring processes and simultaneously equip growing businesses with the talented people they need.

“A third of our candidates have already expressed an interest in hackajob's freelance positions and we believe it's vital to reward Europe's tech talent with relevant roles to suit their lifestyle.”

hackajob has previously worked with companies such as Apple, Argos and Vodafone and more than 100,000 highly skilled technology experts have signed up to the platform.
