Kira Talent launches product redesign to help companies save 75% of their recruitment efforts

Kira Talent’s online video interview screening software has been re-engineered to create a world-class user experience for employers and applicants

Toronto, ON (June 24th, 2013) - Kira Talent’s redesign represents a sweeping change for the award-winning online software solution. The new user interface is designed to create the world’s simplest and easiest to use video interview screening platform. 

“We continue to put our clients’ experience as our top priority” says Kira Talent CEO Emilie Cushman. “Kira Talent’s new design creates an unparalleled user experience that allows our clients to get up and running in minutes.”

Video interview screening allows organizations to see the personality and potential of their candidates in a fraction of the time of expensive phone-screens or in-person interviews. “Our clients report saving up to 75% of their recruitment efforts when switching to Kira Talent as well enhancing their assessment of applicants.” says Cushman. With pricing starting at $14.95 per applicant, video interview screening is now affordable to businesses large and small. 

“Our existing clients will have the same core functionality, but many new innovative features served on a secure, reliable, and fast technology platform.” says Kira Talent CTO and Co-founder Konrad Listwan-Ciesielski. 

Key features include:

  • Stunning new user interface
  • Record unlimited questions as well as intro and outro videos
  • Record your own questions or pick from a bank of Kira Talent’s pre-recorded questions
  • Interactive comment stream for better team collaboration
  • Ability to seamlessly plugin applicant tracking systems
  • Custom branding to candidate emails and application videos
  • Export data for post interview analysis


In 2010 only 10% of companies reported to using video interviewing; however, in 2012 over 60% of companies are using video interviewing in some form. User devices are saturated with camera functionality and, as the war for talent rages on, companies need faster and more innovative ways to screen applicants. In 2025 over 75% of the workforce will be millenials who expect technology to be part of every aspect of their recruitment and employment experience. 

“Video interviewing is not a fad, but represents a truly innovative way to improve the recruitment process by saving time and having greater visibility into the personality and potential of your candidates” says Cushman. “If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. At Kira Talent we are passionate about making the screening process beautiful and productive.”
