talent.io was founded in March 2015, when Amit and Nicolas, two Stanford graduates, who sold their first startup to TripAdvisor, met with Jonathan, a French entrepreneur, and recruitment specialist.
When scaling their startup in the Valley, Amit and Nicolas needed tech talents but realized a real lack of such candidates. Candidates were either unavailable or unresponsive.
That's how Nicolas and Amit unveiled a new problem and a future business idea.
In Paris, Jonathan had noticed that "selective marketplaces" were gaining traction across the world and that Europe was missing a major player. He then started working by on adapting this concept to recruitment in Europe. One day, as he was talking to a VC friend of his, he learned about two SF entrepreneurs working on the same idea for Paris... and that's how they met and joined forces.
Jonathan being a tech recruitment specialist and having an amazing network in Paris, Amit becoming CTO, and Nicolas taking care of strategy and growth.
3 years later, talent.io has expanded to Lyon (France), Lille, Bordeaux, Berlin, and London, and helped more than +2000 companies finding their new team member.
