Interviewed was part of Y Combinator’s Summer 2015 class, after which it went on to raise a seed round of $2M, and then it provided job assessment tools to customers like IBM, Zillow and Thumbtack.
Indeed was also a client of Interviewed, and its Japan-based parent company Recruit was an early investor in the startup. The job platform used Interviewed’s API to let employers attach an automated screening interview or assessment to applications.
These assessments include an automated phone screening, customer support and administrative assistant simulations, and an excel test.
Interviewed’s service should continue to live on independently for the time being, eventually further combining the platforms so employers on Indeed can have the option of making simulations a core part of their job applications.
