Like a dating app, but for alt protein jobs

The listings encompass food science and technology jobs to manufacturing, marketing, and business development, from entry-level positions for recent graduates to senior positions for professionals. Much like dating apps, the platform’s algorithms calculate matching scores and showcase compatibility.

“By leveraging advanced AI technology, we create efficient, precise, and unbiased connections between alt protein companies and candidates, ensuring the perfect match for both,” says Pia Voltz, Founder & CEO of Tälist.

“Finding the best candidates can be just as challenging as finding the right partner. We bring the concept of dating platforms to HR,” says Voltz. “Thanks to our platform AltProtein.Jobs, companies can find qualified candidates who also fit in culturally. This leads to higher satisfaction and long-term success.”

“Our AI-based algorithms compare the skills, experience, and preferences of candidates with the specific requirements of open roles, calculate matching scores, and indicate compatibilities (and incompatibilities),” says Oliver Boldt, CTO of Tälist. “This involves processing volumes of data that are impossible for humans to handle. The result is a more successful and efficient recruitment strategy that saves both time and resources.”

Tälist’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable food system by connecting companies in the space with top talent from around the world.

Actively approaching suitable candidates and pre-selecting relevant profiles from a large number of applications are among the most time-consuming and inefficient steps, explains Voltz. Tälist’s AI-supported matchmaking simplifies this by quickly presenting prescreened, suitable candidates, at a fraction of the cost of conventional headhunting firms. In addition, Tälist also offers premium job advertisements and industry-specific recruitment services.

“Their job board is one of the best resources for anyone searching for new career opportunities as well as for companies advertising their open roles,” adds Albrecht Wolfmeyer, Director, ProVeg Incubator.

While the service is completely free for candidates, employers can now save 30% using this exclusive voucher code during check-out: MATCH30. Candidates and companies can sign up for free here.
