PredictiveHire | January 06, 2022

North News
PredictiveHire, creator of the world's first Smart Interviewer, today announced Nick Bosch is joining the company as its Head of Growth, North America. In this new role Bosch will lead sales, partnerships and customer success within North America.

The appointment of Bosch is off the back of a huge year for PredictiveHire, with the Australian-headquartered company growing by 300% in the last 12 months, with 25% of that growth coming from the US and EMEA. They have helped over 1.2million candidates apply for jobs across 47 countries. 

"There is simply no other interview-product like ours in the US and given the current intense need for talent at all levels there we're truly excited to show what our Smart Interviewer, Phai, is capable of, Bosch was the perfect person to help lead the charge into the US market with his background in HR Tech, as both a co-founder of Reschedge, overseeing its rapid growth leading to the acquisition by HireVue, and having been a key sales leader at Beamery. " 
- PredictiveHire CEO Barb Hyman
 
Bosch said he signed on to the role as soon as he saw the product and spoke to customers about the impact it was having in their organizations.

"This is the simplest yet most sophisticated way to deliver quality candidates to companies - while saving time and money. Companies short of talent don't need to sacrifice quality if they use Phai. I'm looking forward to being part of PredictiveHire transforming how talent decisions are made in the US and Canada."

- Bosch

Hyman said PredictiveHire addressed three big challenges facing many US companies right now - it creates a fair hiring experience helping companies deliver on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion ; it lives up to the market expectations of a candidate-centric approach; and it solves for the need-for-speed in hiring.
