Account Executive - Denver/Boulder CO, or Remote

Why SmartRank Exists
The old fashioned but ubiquitous process of reviewing resumes to assess talent is inefficient, ineffective, biased, and expensive.  Most Applicant Tracking Systems (ATSs) list applicants chronologically which doesn't create any differentiation and forces the recruiters, and sometimes hiring managers, to subjectively go through each applicant one-by-one.  In addition, most recruiters are not subject matter experts at every position they are hiring for, so they do their best comparing keywords between resumes and job descriptions, but unfortunately a lot of important context gets missed. This wastes time for both the recruiters and hiring managers.  In addition, applicant names and other data on resumes create the single biggest source of unconscious bias, restricting DE&I progress. 

SmartRank is an enterprise SaaS product for talent acquisition teams that allows them to stack-rank and filter job applicants based on their specific qualifications without using a resume.  This creates an equitable opportunity for 100% of applicants, saves the recruiters and hiring managers an enormous amount of time and energy, helps companies identify the best qualified applicants faster, provides proof that organizations are "walking the walk" when it comes to DE&I, and ultimately saves organizations hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars per year.
