Rolebot Raises $4.5M, Jason Calacanis Invests

Sit back, relax and wait for calendar invites to populate your inbox. That’s the promise of startup Rolebot, who has raised $4.5 million from investors Data Point Capital, Uncorrelated Ventures, well-known Valley pundit Jason Calacanis, and the Launch Fund. The company says it uses artificial intelligence to book interviews with candidates without the need for resumes, job descriptions or job postings.

They also guarantee that one third of delivered candidates are “diverse” and that typically one in five interviewed candidates are hired. Rolebot is active across several sectors, and claims to work best with skilled workers including engineers, marketers, sales people, designers, accountants executives and others with verifiable track records.

Clients include Snowflake (software engineering), Randstad, the American Red Cross and the University of Southern California. Rolebot CEO Shane Bernstein wrote in the funding announcement, “Working in the recruitment industry for 17 years, I saw the barriers to hiring were the resume and the job description – neither are helpful.

“As my own recruiting business grew, I also saw that hiring more recruiters didn’t scale financially. Instead, we turned to technology and honed in on evidence-based data, and we saw that we could scale and disrupt an otherwise antiquated industry. Rolebot is the product of that deep domain expertise and the newly available AI models.”

Total raised is $5.8M, according to Crunchbase, and the company employs about 60 folks, according to LinkedIn.
