Toronto, Canada (May 20, 2014) – Kira Talent is the first video interviewing platform of its kind that will allow companies of any size to integrate video into their hiring process absolutely free, completely eliminating the need for phone screen interviews. 

“Being efficient is so important for growing companies, yet they are still stuck going through hundreds of resumes and phone screens in the search for talent.”, said Emilie Cushman, CEO and Co-Founder of Kira Talent. “We’re excited to give companies around the world the opportunity to screen their candidates smarter and faster with Kira Talent.” 

Kira Talent eliminates the headaches associated with traditional phone screens, including scheduling conflicts and time spent with the wrong candidates. It offers a completely self-serve experience from start to finish and requires no lengthy integrations or IT involvement, and the world class support ensures that candidates always have an amazing interview experience. Best of all, Kira Talent clients routinely save up to 80% of their screening efforts. 

Video interviewing is the future, with nearly 60% of North American companies currently using it in their recruiting process. However, before today the adoption of this innovative technology has been reserved for large enterprise companies with even larger budgets. No longer. Companies can now visit and sign up for their free account, record video questions, receive video responses from up to 100 candidates, and then rank, share, and compare their favourite candidates with the rest of their team – absolutely free. 

For larger companies, Kira Talent also offers competitive pricing plans that scale with their recruiting needs. Packages start at just $99 a month, and include the ability to brand the experience with custom intro and outro videos, and receive an unlimited number of candidate responses.
