NEWS: Recrubo secures €600k in funding: ‘We aim to reach 5 million users within 5 years’

“Recrubo has closed a seed round of €600.000 to further develop its product and scale commercially. The company utilizes AI technology to optimize the recruitment process for blue-collar and service companies through chat. This allows candidates to apply easily, while providing companies with tools to efficiently follow up on candidates. For instance, a meal delivery company from Amsterdam managed to fill all open positions and cut the costs per new employee in half.

“For many positions, an extensive CV is not relevant. By allowing candidates to apply quickly and easily via WhatsApp, we better meet the needs of the current generation. We make a huge leap in terms of user experience, for both candidates and employers,” says Niels Tukker, founder and CEO of Recrubo.”

Apply via Whatsapp

Recrubo enables (latent) job seekers to easily apply via WhatsApp. All touchpoints from initial exploration to scheduling an appointment are automated. Under the hood, artificial intelligence is used to tailor the candidate journey to the job vacancy and desired profile. The application process is automatically set up based on a job description. AI immediately understands the company’s requirements and initiates a chat process. By being trained on the job description and company information, AI can answer all applicant questions. The simple setup ensures scalability, even across different job vacancies.

Since the product’s launch a year and a half ago, Recrubo has experienced rapid growth. It now serves large and well-known employers such as Sodexo, FEBO, DHL, and ZEEMAN. Recrubo’s software already results in hundreds of new hires per month, and the ambition is significant: “five million new hires in five years.”

The funding round is supported by Glass Frog Ventures, Pop up Qapital, and the Brabant Development Agency (BOM).

“Recrubo is more than just a co-pilot for recruitment. The company addresses a pressing issue of labor shortages,” says Investment Manager Robin Hendrickx from BOM. “Companies are increasingly struggling to fill vacancies, and often this is one of the main barriers to growth. Therefore, the impact being achieved is fundamentally significant. The results with clients are promising, and we are pleased to contribute to the further growth of this company.”

Glass Frog Ventures Quote:
“We are impressed by the team’s customer focus and infectious ‘getting things done’ mentality. The recruitment chatbot, seamlessly integrated with applicants in the mobile era, is a fantastic tool for employers to stand out in the current tight labor market,” says Steven van Houwelingen on behalf of Glass Frog Ventures. “We look forward to helping Recrubo grow into a successful company.”

Pop Up Qapital Quote:
“There are countless opportunities to simplify the recruitment process, and Recrubo uses AI to make applying and selecting for candidates and employers much simpler and faster,” says Quintin Schevernels of Pop up Qapital.
