Engin Sciences Inc., a startup developing AI-powered recruitment software, announced today a $2.5 million seed funding round led by investment firm Gotham Green Partners. The cutting-edge technology used by engin streamlines job advertising and recruitment for businesses, resulting in high-intent applicants, accelerated hiring, and significant cost savings.
Companies need to fill hundreds of thousands of positions as emerging industries like cannabis grow rapidly across the United States. Leading brands like Columbia Care, Stiiizy, and Etain already use engin’s platform to build their employer brand, intelligently distribute job listings, and match candidates with positions that match their skills and experience.
Sloane Barbour and Dr. Valerie Fraysse, both tech veterans, co-founded engin. While the company is currently focused on the cannabis industry, it intends to expand into other industries that face similar challenges in recruiting and retaining entry-level and frontline workers, such as sustainable agriculture, clean-tech, hospitality, omnichannel retail, psychedelic medicine, and artificial intelligence.
With this funding, engin intends to increase sales and marketing efforts aimed at enterprise customers, introduce innovative AI-powered features, and expand offerings to better serve the cannabis industry and other emerging markets.
engin is a software company that helps companies in emerging industries build equitable, sustainable, and profitable workforces. Scaling first in the rapidly expanding cannabis sector, engin assists businesses in recruiting smarter, hiring faster, and retaining talent for longer periods of time.
