The text-based interview platform Canvas has recently announced that they will be integrating their mobile app with Snap Inc.'s (Snapchat's parent company) Bitmoji Kit, giving both applicants and hiring managers the ability to personalize and communicate with the sticker avatars while interviewing.
As the first HR tech platform to leverage the power of personalized avatars, the Canvas platform has integrated with Bitmoji Kit to add a greater sense of personality to a text-based job interview. Canvas users can easily send and receive Bitmojis, adding depth and personality to text interviews and recruiting conversations.
Bitmoji was the number one downloaded Apple iOS app in 2017. Canvas plans to launch Bitmoji Kit web API integration in the next quarter.
“People are using avatars to communicate everywhere – at work, in life, and even in texts with coworkers and friends. Now, job seekers can expect to get personalized avatars from the next person interviewing them,” said Aman Brar, CEO of Canvas. “Canvas enables recruiters to humanize the screening process for candidates by allowing them to chat seamlessly back and forth via text, and the new Bitmoji integration takes personalization one step further.”
