Gooroo is a predictive technology platform that makes hiring talent more accurate, teams more productive and communications more targeted.

Gooroo does this by using artificial intelligence and neuroscience across three core products: Gooroo Jobs, Gooroo Mindspace and Gooroo Communities.

  • Gooroo Jobs matches and ranks candidates to a role
  • Gooroo Mindspace assesses and charts the thinking patterns of an individual and a team to better understand future behaviour; and
  • Gooroo Communities helps organisations build enriched talent databases that speed up access to qualified talent.

In May 2017, Gooroo begun commercial enterprise sales in the Australian market. The Gooroo platform is made available via minimum term monthly subscriptions based on company size and/or projected usage.

The Gooroo platform can remove up to 90% of the time wasted in screening and shortlisting talent, while improving selection accuracy by over 70% and reducing churn.

Core technology

Gooroo’s core technology leverages artificial intelligence disciplines such as machine learning and natural language processing (NLP). In June 2016 Gooroo acquired ColourGrid™, a platform based on neuroscience that is used to evaluate an individual’s mindset, work styles, contribution and alignment to a company and team.

Market focus

Gooroo's enterprise platform is being solid to companies and recruiters and is applicable across  industries.

The company is focused on working with organisations who see their future competitive advantage centred around how effectively they apply technology.

The Gooroo Jobs platform has initially targeted the US$100 billion+ global information technology (IT) recruitment sector which promotes over 25 million vacancies each year. 

Problem being solved

The Gooroo platform addresses the two primary challenges talent and employers find:

  • wasted time and money; and

  • the cost of failure to deliver products and services in a digital world.

This is typically characterised by:

  • qualified talent being very hard to find as demand for technology competency continues its global rise

  • the increasingly transient nature of the professional sector is adding pressure on organisations to retain talent

  • the increasing pressure on hirers to find better talent, while increasing diversity and removing bias

  • a desire to identify candidates who are more likely to perform and grow with the business.

Multiple revenue streams

Primarily, hirers (employers/recruiters) subscribe to access the platform and pay a fee for each job posted.

Multiple revenue streams are available to Gooroo as it progressively rolls out its commercialisation strategy.
