Jobsikaz, Kenya-based startup that links employers and candidates using machine learning and predictive analysis, has recently rebranded as Emploi.

Launched three years ago and active in four African countries with more than 40,000 registered users, Jobsikaz began life as a simple jobs board but has now upgraded its recruitment engine to incorporate technology that aims to make it the fastest and most accurate job-matching platform in the region.
