How it all started

‘HR-bot came out of a necessity. We faced the challenging process of hiring people in our own company and realized how time-consuming it was. We were posting vacancies, and selecting candidates, half of whom did not even come to the interview. Since we're an IT company, we tried to streamline that process. We wrote a chatbot that communicated with candidates for us. It worked. In just six months of the startup's existence, we entered the Russian market, and now 90% of all revenue comes from large Russian companies and only 10% from Kazakhstani ones.’

About the challenges

"We focus on big customers, and with such large companies, everything takes time. Integration takes months. Because large companies have well-established processes, and it is difficult and painful to change them abruptly. Misunderstandings often arise when it is necessary to explain why they need this technology, and how to get the maximum benefit. A person is always more comfortable to be in the comfort zone - even if it is ineffective. Any stress that comes in the form of a new business approach or process makes everyone suspicious. That is why our task is to make a competent smooth transition."

What’s next?

"Our product is easily scalable, and IT recruitment follows the same rules. We want to become a truly global HR project with clients from all over the world."
