New York-based a members only hiring platform, InterviewJet has raised $750,000 in seed funding from Mitchell Martin, an IT and healthcare staffing company.

As per a TechCrunch report, the money will go to expanding InterviewJet’s sales and product teams, increasing staff on both by half.

Started by co-founder and CEO Joshua Holtzman, InterviewJet has facilitated 1,000 interviews and signed up more than 450 employers to their network. The company features the top technologists that its team has pre-screened and fully vetted. Member employers are given 72 hours of access to browse through each technologist and request an interview with just one click.

InterviewJet is currently signing up approximately half of the 40-50 companies that apply to join each week and vetting 10-12 new candidates to show off to its member companies. The firm consists of 10 members in its current team.

“Our biggest issue for the foreseeable future is getting more candidates,” Holtzman told TechCrunch in a phone call on Tuesday. “We’ve built our own sourcing technology that takes advantage of marketing automation and crowd-source lead-gen, we have people scouring the internet looking for individuals with particular skill sets.”
