Tilr Launches Algorithmic Hiring Platform In New Orleans


CINCINNATI — tilr, a company that connects temporary, project and temp-to-perm workers to jobs using an algorithm focused only on skills, has expanded into 12 new markets, including New Orleans, increasing its footprint to 17 markets nationwide. tilr has already amassed on-demand workers and employers in every new market.

These markets are in addition to tilr’s existing footprint covering Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Indianapolis and Northern Kentucky.

“Our explosive growth directly correlates to two things. One is the need for qualified, vetted, on-demand workers, and the second is the demand for a more diverse workforce and a less-biased hiring process,” said tilr CEO Carisa Miklusak. “By addressing these two market factors, we have surpassed our 2018 expansion goal in the first two quarters and, to date, have helped 25,000 workers and more than 350 companies fill 960,000 hours of work.”

Among the new markets, Dallas, Nashville, New Orleans and Orlando are experiencing the most rapid growth, with several large companies in each market signing up in the first few weeks of launch. Events, hospitality and customer service are the leading job categories across all markets. Other job listings have come through tilr’s self-service channel, which enables businesses to self-post opportunities to the marketplace.

“Finding the right person for the job is challenging under the best of circumstances, and we often have very little time to fill multiple posts, making the process even more difficult and costly,” said Wyzerr CEO Natasia Malaihollo, a tech company that builds gamified customer feedback surveys for companies such as P&G, PayPal and Walmart. “tilr has been a game-changer for us. Just last week, we posted 20 jobs that needed to be filled in a day and, in less than eight hours, the task was complete. We were also highly impressed with the caliber of the candidates.”
