About us

A Dutch SaaS startup aiming to turn the recruitment tech market upside down.

The Equalture Story

Equalture is a Dutch startup in the recruitment tech market, founded by twin sisters Charlotte and Fleur in 2018. Their goal: disrupting the recruitment industry.

The night Fleur and I were surrounded by 26 sheets of paper that formed the fundament for Equalture, we read a quote online stating the following: ”HR isn’t just a thing wo do. It’s the thing that runs our businesses.”

And I truly believe every single word of that quote. We might have the best ideas in the world. We might have the coolest plans to brings this ideas to live. However, without a team that aims for the moon your business will never fly.

So that’s our ultimate goal: Helping you to build a winning team by predicting an applicant’s future performance within your team. After all, hiring in is all about predicting, learning and getting better, right?

Charlotte Melkert, Co-Founder & CEO

We want to give a monthly look behind the scenes of our company. Milestones. Failures. Lessons we’ve learned. And of course the coolest customer stories. Just the honest story about a SaaS startup trying to conquer the world.
