by Kay Aloha Villamor in March 8th, 2023

Glider AI, a Cupertino, CA-based skill intelligence platform, closed $10 million in a Series A funding round from Primera Capital and other industry leaders.

The company will use the funds to continue its expansion in contingent programs and permanent hiring, furthering the development of proprietary technology, and growing its global team.

Glider AI serves a customer base of global enterprises and leading staffing firms, supporting their transformation from outdated credentials-first recruiting into remote-centric, skills-based hiring.

CEO and Co-founder of Glider, Satish Kumar, shares, "Companies realize employee skills are central to their business strategy, not just hiring. The need to validate candidate skill and integrity is more critical than ever in a remote-friendly and hybrid world. Glider AI's Skill Intelligence Platform serves the market need to confirm job readiness and employee potential. I'm grateful to our customers and investors for believing in Glider AI's mission."

Glider AI customers benefit from the industry's most comprehensive recruiting solution, bringing skill intelligence across multiple modalities and channels, from screening to live interviews, over the web or phone, through WhatsApp or SMS.

Additionally, customers can configure Glider AI to meet their quality benchmark requirements, customize assessments to match their technology stack or functional roles, and throttle the level of AI-proctoring and anti-plagiarism controls.

Boasting over 250,000 questions, 35+ interactive question types, and 500+ competencies for technology and non-tech functional roles, the Glider AI solution extends beyond hiring with the ability to identify employee skill gaps, supporting reskilling and upskilling initiatives.
