About the Company: Kula is a recruitment automation platform founded in 2021 by Achuthanand Ravi, Sathappan Muthupalaniappan, and Suman Kumar Dey that broadens the talent pool by unifying all candidate sources and automating candidate outreach and engagement. Recruiters can then reach out to the best-fit talent via multiple channels and touchpoints using automated nudges. Kula makes it easy and quick for employees to refer new talent to their organizations, while also providing their leadership teams with a consistent and reliable view of their talent pipeline at all times. Kula is a SaaS platform that allows recruiters to create automated workflows to engage with candidates continuously, saving hours on repetitive tasks. The platform integrates with all of the tools recruiters use daily, such as LinkedIn, GitHub, Gmail, and the Applicant Tracking System (ATS). By automating outreach campaigns, recruiters can avoid spending countless hours on the most mundane tasks in the hiring process. The startup is currently pre-revenue with alpha customers and monetizes through its go-to-market strategy, which is primarily focused on the United States.
