Interview Rocket Secures more than $250K in Seed Funding

February 5, 2013

Financing will fuel further development of the world’s most
comprehensive online recruitment tool,

HALIFAX, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Interview Rocket Ltd., developer of an online Software-as-a-Service job candidate screening
tool, today announced it has secured more than $250,000 in seed funding
from various sources, including the First Angel Network, Cabot Technology Solutions and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities
Agency. The funding will allow Interview Rocket to accelerate the
development of new features and implement a comprehensive marketing

Interview Rocket combines video recording technology with an easy-to-use
online interface that allows recruiters to screen candidates up to 10
times faster than using traditional methods while increasing confidence
the right person is hired for the job. On average Interview Rocket
clients save $6 on wages and associated hiring costs for every $1 they
spend using the online recruitment tool.

By using www.InterviewRocket.com, first-round telephone interviews are replaced with a secure,
highly-customized, online interview that is recorded by webcam and
distributed to preselected reviewers. This format creates a consistent
interview experience and eliminates the need to trade voicemail
messages, schedule interviews, work around time zones or convene a
costly interview panel.

“Interview Rocket was custom-built to bridge the gap between the
time-crunched Human Resources professional and that perfect applicant
who may not be local or might not have the opportunity or money to
participate in the interview process otherwise,” says Craig Brown,
founder of Interview Rocket. “With this technology we successfully and
efficiently marry the needs of both groups; this results in a roster of
excellent candidates that can translate to satisfied employees with a
good corporate fit.  We have a string of exciting new features we are
working on that will make our process even easier and more convenient
for a broader range of job-seekers and employers. We are thrilled to be
able to bring these to market faster than we could have without this

“The funding we have received has allowed us to pursue opportunities in
other industries as well”, Brown adds. “We have been approached by a
number of organizations in various industries looking for schedule
independent video interviewing solutions. It turns out that video
interviewing is not just for recruiters.”
