The journey to launch our rocket

Our history starts in early 2017, when co-founders were working in separate teams – Jason and Pedro in the US, Paulo and Tiago in Brazil – investigating how to use Machine Learning to address opportunities in HR: making hiring decisions better, more dynamic and accurate, while maximizing the use of the candidate pipeline. The idea of what is Matthew today owes its creation mostly to Paulo’s PhD thesis: how to translate human behaviors into data in order to design and run algorithms in a Machine Learning model. Paulo and Tiago engaged in a project to validate the thesis, a Brazilian company with 25,000 employees struggling to reduce turnover and make the hiring process faster and more accurate. Soon enough, our four co-founders were introduced by a mentor, and joined forces to fully prove the concept, productize it and bring it to the US market. Since then our rocket has gained a robust structure to launch into an amazing journey, making the future a reality now!
