Textio Summary Information

Textio develops a software application that automatically analyzes and matches the preferred candidate for hiring. Founded in 2014, it has its corporate headquarters in Seattle, Washington. It started out with a challenge to itself: How to predict whether a Kickstarter project would meet its proposed budget even before it was published? To find this out the company developed a software that would analyze the text of every Kickstarter project ever in existence. What were the patterns that distinguished the most successful projects? With machine learning and linguistic analysis, the company was able to predict Kickstarter project with almost 90% accuracy. Textio's first tool looks at talent acquisition documents such as job postings to determine its performance among candidates. They found out that certain words and layouts were more attractive to other candidates than others. For example, the company found out that job postings with bullet points performed much better than job postings without them. Although commonly used for talent acquisition documents, Textio can also be applied to documents that included common phrases such as email, resumes, or other kinds of messages. The platform is being used by companies such as Twitter, Atlassian, Starbucks, and others. Textio is able to recognize over 60,000 phrases with its predictive technology. It looks at how words are put together and at other syntax-related properties the document may have. All that put together results in a score for the document depending on how they are likely to succeed in whatever the writer set out to do. Textio acts like a smart word processor. With the software, customers can edit, format, copy, and paste just like in any word processor. But Textio predicts the success of the job listing or candidate email as they edit the text. The text will have its Textio score which determines the effectiveness of the document. The higher the score, the more effective the text is. As the customer types, the software highlights the key phrases that will change the effectiveness of the document. The software provides a list of Strengths and Problems that tells customers the areas that needs improvement. It also helps the customer understand whether the tone of their message is likely to attract more men or women compared to listings and emails in their industry. Textio compares with Workable, Greenhouse, and Jobvite. The company CEO is Kieran Snyder with an Owler approval rating of 95%.

Textio's Co-Founder & CEO, Kieran Snyder, currently has an approval rating of 74%. Textio's primary competitors are  SmartRecruiters Jobvite Recruiterbox.
