Cognius

www.cognius.com/

Cognius, LLC is transforming the hiring market using a data-driven approach to optimization, a profitable business model, and an audience of millions of job-seekers each month.

Inefficient markets present huge opportunities to create transformational businesses and it’s hard to find a market more inefficient than staffing. The hiring market is large, complex and opaque. Job seekers are left to wander their personal networks or scour long lists of semi-relevant opportunities. Employers are stuck with the expensive, time-consuming task of weeding through large volumes of poorly qualified resumes from untargeted sources, or else paying high fees to recruiters. This is exactly the type of problem the minds at Cognius thrive on fixing.

Cognius was founded in January 2013 by 3 veterans of Cogo Labs, Boston’s most successful Internet accelerator. They have over a decade of combined experience launching high growth Internet startups with a focus on predictive analytics, and have been key players in four separate companies that each achieved $20MM in annualized revenue in three years or less.
