In this week’s interview, we present you co-founder of Splinter.ME, Adealina Peltea. Just a reminder, Splinter.ME is a social recruitment platform and co-organizers of Hacker Tour Europe. Read how this successful young lady is managing her work in many different roles, the future plans of Splinter.ME and expectations of Hacker Tour Europe!
Splinter.Me has two co-founders, Ahmed and me, currently working together from 5000 km away. I am based in Brussels, he is based in Egypt. We are truly an EMEA startup as GigaOm called us.
Our main purpose is to help people showcase their professional value and get matched with work opportunities, all with the power of technology. Our technology analyzes people’s activities online, on various platforms, and displays a 360 degree profile, aggregating experience, skills, interests, connections etc. With these information-rich profiles, we can then match professionals to work opportunities that fit.
Most social recruitment platforms focus only on spreading job opportunities on social networks, in an easily manageable way. We go in reverse: we get all the info people have on various social networks and form one complete profile that employers can use to recruit.
We plan on launching officially in September this year. Right now we are in public beta and still have part of the functionality to develop. We are looking to raise seed funding and enhance our reach. We already have users from 60+ countries all over the world, but we need a higher volume. As for longer term plans, we aim to become an indispensable recruitment tool, revolutionizing the industry, making people’s lives easier with the power of technology.
We normally help employers find the right talents, but when it comes to technical talents, the market needs more of them. We want to be active in encouraging people to develop skills required by the market in the present and future. We want to help shape the next generation of workforce. Hacker Tour makes sense in this case, because it helps students get in touch with startups and discover what skills are needed and how they can land technical jobs inside startups.
To young people I would say: stay curious and experiment.
