A Mission to Revolutionize Job Search – Gergo Vari, Founder of Lensa

- Advertisement -

In a world that is filled with many talented persons and highly-skilled professionals who are constantly in search of new job opportunities, there is an increasing need for platforms that help to make job hunting easier for both employers and potential employees. Platforms like Lensa have managed to bridge the gap between both parties in a bid to create a more fluid and effective job search process.

Lensa Incorporated is a job search engine and career advocacy platform that supports millions of job seekers and companies alike to help find the right talent.

Lensa’s primary purpose is to create a job search engine that eliminates manual selection bias in the recruitment process. Before Lensa, Hungary’s leading recruitment platform, Profession. hu was funded and launched by Gergo Vari, the founder of Lensa, and in just four years, they had reached an extraordinary market share of 75%. The company was eventually purchased by SanomaMedia in 2005, and the transaction was the largest of its kind in Hungary up to that time.

Gergo Vari’s passion for startups led him on to establish and head e-Ventures, and later, in 2008, to the launch and sale of AffilateMedia, Network. hu, and Replise. With this growth, it opened his eyes to the need for recruiting and human resources technology. He had the first taste for entrepreneurship as a child selling fruit from his grandfather’s orchard. In the following years, his journey through founding, funding, and exiting successful startups taught him a valuable lesson that the hiring process is largely disorganized and so is the way people look for jobs and develop their careers. This was how the idea to establish Lensa came to light and also the desire to look at the larger picture, outside the borders of Hungary and Europe and focus on the US. That’s why he created Lensa, a start-up company that offers a technological solution to the crisis of the career marketplace and the company now supports more than 18 million job openings in the United States.

At Lensa, the aim is to transform the way recruitment works through the implementation of real-time AI and allocate the right career choices based on an applicant’s desires and abilities. This unique and revolutionary platform is designed to change the former process of job search entirely. Lensa aims at creating holistic products that cover the entire career cycle, from job search to landing one’s dream job and advancing to the top of one’s chosen field and company. Job openings will no longer be viewed by most people as one-off opportunities, but as stepping stones to fulfilling one’s long-term as well as short-term professional goals.

Lensa offers a variety of unique products and services and a noteworthy service is the ability of Lensa to pair up job seekers with the most relevant job openings and help them find a job where they can fit in and excel.
