Dreaming of a job on Wall Street? Entrepreneur Adam Grealish wants to make that happen with a new job-hunt service called Roletroll.
Grealish's service, which launched mid-June and is free for job seekers, uses algorithms to match potential employees to jobs in finance and technology. The company use statistics and unstructured big data to match people with jobs based on their unique skills and experiences, Grealish said.
He started Roletroll after struggling with his own job search.
"I was engaged in a job search in 2010 and found the tools available both untargeted and impersonal. Unless I was constantly searching, it seemed it was up to little more than dumb luck for me to stumble across my next dream job," Grealish said.
Roletroll aims to provide hyper-personalized job results.
"We provide job matches specifically tailored to the user so they do not have to waste time searching for roles that are not the right fit," Grealish said. "It's like Kayak.com meets OKCupid for jobs."
The company, which employs five people, is so far self-funded. Grealish declined to say how many users have signed up for the service.
"[Roletroll] is monetizing by charging employers to post directly into the system," he added. The most basic listing goes for $45.
Grealish plans to expand the service with a tool to help recruiters source candidates using the proprietary technology. Available on mobile and desktop, with an app in the works, Roletroll operates in New York, Chicago and San Francisco now. Grealish plans to expand to cities such as Philadelphia and Boston next.
