Stafory created an AI bot, which scouts for candidates for ordinary jobs (cashiers, farming, construction, etc.) on the job websites. AI helps to automate finding CVs and checks availability of the applicant. If a candidate is interested in a proposed job offer, the robot sends him or her an e-mail with a full description of a vacancy and also invites a jobseeker to have a video-interview. AI can recognize speech and answer the questions about the vacancy.

Techmafia team helped us a lot with daily meetings and focusing on our main goal during acceleration program - conducting as much interviews with potential customers as possible. We gradually improved our problem discovery questions and found out a main customer problem. As a result we build an MVP which shows organic growth of DAU (daily active users).

Alexey Kostarev

Acceleration with TechMafia allowed us to work out hypotheses to test our value proposition in the US market and conduct customer development with real companies. Feedback on the results of the trip made possible to look differently at our product and find out the way to re-enter the market with much more preparation.
