Big change requires
big thinkers 

pymetrics is built by market-changers and designed with purpose.

The beginning of it all 

After a decade working as an academic neuroscientist at Harvard and MIT, I got a fellowship for an MBA at Harvard where I had a front-row seat to the recruiting process.

I was shocked to see it hadn’t really changed in the (many) years since I graduated from college. My classmates were prepping for 6 months to land their “perfect” internship or job, only to hate it 3 days in. I was experiencing the problem too. My 30-page-plus academic resume said nothing of what I could do in the business world, let alone that I could be a tech entrepreneur. I was a 38-year-old single mom who didn’t fit the 20-something, male entrepreneur mold. There had to be a better solution.

Platforms like Spotify and Netflix take in information about you and give personalized recommendations that seem to know you better than you know yourself. Their movie recommendations are not based on their descriptions. Instead, they analyze movies deeply based on traits and then match you with suggestions based on what you like in movies.

Where was the equivalent for jobs? pymetrics set out to solve this problem, harnessing the power of ethical AI to match people to the jobs where they are most likely to succeed.
