About us

We are going to disrupt the recruitment market and this is why.

Equalture is a Dutch HR SaaS startup, founded in 2017 by twin sisters Charlotte and Fleur, because they believed the recruitment market should change radically.

” Evaluating candidates based on a resume is outdated, incomplete and only focused on a bunch of jobs or degrees in the past. There’s so much more information candidates can provide you that’s actually valuable – such as personality, cognitive skills and intelligence – because it tells you more about a candidate’s potential. It’s time for the recruitment market to wake up, embrace data and technology and stop basing hiring decisions purely on gut feeling and bias.

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that all companies support their hiring decisions with reliable, proven and complete candidate analyses. Just by introducing a piece of data that learns from your previous hiring decisions. It’s time to say hi to data-driven hiring and bye to making one bad hire ever again. ”
