Hi there, we're Equalture

A fast-growing HR tech scaleup based in The Netherlands, Rotterdam with the goal of shaping the world of unbiased hiring.

About Equalture

What happened in 2017 was a trigger for Charlotte Melkert & Fleur Melkert – it was time to start a revolution.

Charlotte and Fleur started a recruitment agency, focused on getting more females in management positions. Soon after they started this company, Fleur and Charlotte realized that contributing to a more equal world isn’t about positive discrimination or setting quotas.

It’s about enabling and ensuring equal opportunities, regardless of who you are, where you come from, and what you stand for.

And that’s how Equalture was born.

Equalture has become a fast-growing HR tech scaleup based in The Netherlands, Rotterdam with the goal of shaping the world of unbiased hiring.

Equalture’s hiring software helps SMBs collect unbiased insights on the skills and behaviors of both their team and candidates to hire the best-fits without bias, by using a gamified approach

Our vision

We want the world to be a place where everyone has equal rights and opportunities. A world in which people care about who someone actually is, beyond what’s written on paper.

Have you ever felt like you were evaluated based on your gender, age, or race, rather than your potential, skills, and personality? Conscious and unconscious biases affect candidates that apply for jobs and leave a significant impact on company culture and inclusivity. It’s important to look at this issue from a social imperative first, before looking at it as a business case.

For this reason, we are on a mission to shape the world of unbiased hiring. 

A world in which we evaluate people on skills, potential, and personality, rather than gender, age or race.
