CompanyMatch is active in the online recruitment industry helping employers find the best talent for their organisations. The changing jobs market requires a different and innovative approach replacing the tried and tested. CompanyMatch has developed a matching algorithm which matches job seekers and employers based on shared values and Cultural Fit. How does it work? Straightforward and simple! Go about your business of searching for jobs via any job board or career site as usual. CompanyMatch is there to help and explain to the job seeker whether there is a match with the employer based on shared values and ambitions.

Which employer suits you?

We believe you will be happier and more productive when you work for an employer that suits you. Jobseekers sometimes compare CompanyMatch to an election voting quiz or compass, and it is even known as the jobs dating app. The jobseeker can match one on one with their employer of choice or can view the top 25 employers that best fit their personal profile. – Bjorn Veenstra, founder CompanyMatch

Employers can use the CompanyMatch matching technology as a simple plug-in or fully integrate it into their recruitment process throughout career sites and in application forms etcetera.

Jobseekers benefit from the opportunity to be able to find out more about the employer, their shared values and drivers early on in the online orientation phase. Employers are able to communicate what they are looking for in a candidate during these early stages of the job search allowing them to positively influence the ‘quality of hire’. David van Driel, CTO CompanyMatch confirms ‘It’s a win-win and our client data shows us that the chances of a candidate being hired nearly double when the matching percentage is 75% or higher.’

Recent growth CompanyMatch

CompanyMatch started out as a Dutch startup focussed on the local market. After a couple of pioneering years it is now experiencing accelerated growth and expanding into new markets. Two thirds of the FD Gazelles are active in foreign markets with Belgium taking top spot followed by Germany. CompanyMatch is available in four languages and is active in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria and the UK. Six months ago CompanyMatch opened another office in Cologne from where our German team covers the DACH markets (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). The CompanyMatch team has grown from just a couple of staff members to a team of 12.

400 employers, active in very different industries, are already using the CompanyMatch technology. Among our clients are Hunkemöller, ABN AMRO, Alliander, Medialaan, Sky, NN Group, Capgemini, HRS, Siemens, Innogy and hospital UMCU. But also companies such as Randstad, Manpower and Adecco are using the CompanyMatch online matching technology as an integrated part of their services.

In May earlier this year, CompanyMatch had already been selected for the Scale programme (start-ups in growth phase) of The Next Web Conference, the biggest Tech Festival in Europe and now the FD Gazelle Award is further recognition of our recent success.
