Matching job offers to skill sets and schedules

A founding team with a vision to change hiring forever

tilr fully automates the recruitment process by matching worker skills to company requirements. They differentiate themselves by vetting and providing on-demand workers based on skills, not job titles.

By working closely with the founding tilr team, Crema partnered to refine the brand and create a product experience for both workers and companies. We built an API that drives matching skills to opportunities, work shifts, and payments. Eventually, Crema built the web, iOS, and Android builds for the platform we iterated through releases toward market validation. Crema served as the product team for tilr for the first two years the platform existed, and worked hand-in-hand with the founding team as an extension of their team.

Algorithmic-based hiring on skills, not resumes

tilr entered into a market dominated by traditional hiring processes involving resumé bias, long wait times between job postings and fulfillment, along with other challenges that prohibited connecting job seekers and employers. Up front, tilr knew the solution had to involve algorithmic-based hiring on skills, not resumes, for effective and efficient job placement. Creating an accessible platform that efficiently onboarded and connected job seekers with employers was the core challenge that needed to be solved.

Let's talk about your business & technology goals.

"Crema is great at pushing me to do the right thing for my company, as opposed to doing the right thing for them."

— Luke Vigeant, Former CTO, tilr

Tech is a tool, we're building ventures

tilr launched in Cincinnati, and continues to add new markets to their roster. As tilr has grown, we iterated and grew the product based on customer feedback, including a redesign of the mobile app onboarding process to significantly cut down the amount of time it takes for a job seeker to get connected to potential employers. To help support tilr's continued growth as a company, we also built out increasingly powerful admin tools. Further, as tilr grew, we helped cultivate an in-house product team that took over ongoing product development as the company has continued to grow into a success venture.
