Software Engineer to Alva Labs
There is something seriously broken with recruitment.

- Candidates struggle to show who they are and instead spend time in tedious processes

- Companies miss out on talent due to focusing on old fashioned success markers

- Studies indicate that more than 40% of all hires are unsuccessful
