About Us


CV Riser started from a simple conversation, where we found a common problem that most companies face, so we thought about an easy and efficient solution to solve it.

From a small idea associated with a big entrepreneurial spirit, the project went from a small prototype to a reality.

The problem we want to solve is related with efficiency and time saving. We identified that companies store hundreds (or thousands) of CVs that they cannot manually analyse in time.

Thus, the objective of CV Riser is to solve this situation by automating the CV screening process of recruitment allowing for more time efficient and meticulous recruitment.

By using our algorithm, companies can analyse the résumés that they already possess and are still collecting, within seconds! Thus, we offer companies the opportunity to maximize both the use of their own data and chance of finding the best candidates.
