Problem

The problem Kalibrr solves is one of unemployment and underemployment as a result of inefficient and outdated tools (job boards). Kalibrr is also solving the problem of employability by helping jobseekers uncover the skills and competencies they need to get the jobs they want.

Solution

Kalibrr has built a platform (kalibrr.com) that allows jobseekers to discover job functions and industries, build profiles and take assessments that then power job recommendations to them. Their behaviors on these recommendations - what jobs they apply to, what jobs they ignore - as well as the behavior of recruiters - then refine the recommendations for both sides of the marketplace. For jobseekers, we are Spotify for jobs.

Target Beneficiaries

Primarily generation z and millennials in emerging market cities in Southeast Asia. These are primarily first-time college graduates and are in the emerging middle class. The other side of the marketplace are the employers - big businesses, startups and SMEs - who need talent to scale their businesses and increase the impact they have in their communities.

Mission and Vision

We want to help people unlock their potential by being a partner in their career journey - Kalibrr wants8
