Originally founded as a digital interview company in 2007, Talent Select AI has spent the last few years focused on developing a new AI technology that aims to revolutionize the candidate assessment and psychometric testing industries, launching Talent Select AI via API integration in early 2023.

Throughout our 15-year history in HR Technology, we have facilitated millions of video, audio, and messaging-based job interviews for enterprise organizations. As a result, our AI platform is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of video interview solutions and other HR technology platforms, as well as hiring managers and decision makers at organizations of all sizes.
