TOKYO, Japan, April 19, 2022
Findy, the Japanese startup which pioneers a novel method for matching Engineers with HR-recruitment needs based on AI, has raised 1.5 billion yen (US$ 12.5M*) in a Series C round of funding led by Global Brain, SMBC Venture Capital, JA Mitsui Leasing, Mizuho Capital, KDDI Open Innovation Fund, and Carbide Ventures, an investment firm established by founders of Treasure Data. (* 1USD = 120 JPY)
Findy is the Japanese startup that contributes to the development of our Digital society by offering a platform that unlocks a software engineer’s highest potential.
Findy’s flagship product, “Findy”, analyzes GitHub repositories to score the skills of engineers and demystifies the quantification of skills for users. Engineers can register with us to monitor the pace of growth of their scores, and find the best companies that best suit their talents. In addition, Findy officially launched “Findy Teams” in October 2021, which is a new Intelligence Platform that measures and visualizes the performance of an engineering team. Through Findy Teams, engineering organizations, teams and individual members can visualize issues in their productivity and development processes. It does not only improve the efficiency and maximize the output of engineering organizations, but also contributes to the professional development of individual engineers.
Findy is used by over 750 companies, most of which are leading tech companies in Japan. The number of users grew by 800% to 80,000 engineers over the past 3 years. The number of Findy Teams’ clients reached 100 tech companies.
In April 2022, Findy launched “Findy Global”, a job matching platform for engineers outside of Japan after its test marketing for overseas users in January 2022 received wide acclaim. Within 3 months, 6,000 overseas engineer users registered for the service. This serves as a testament to the global impact “Findy Global” could potentially have.
This investment is aimed at transforming the engineer users’ experience by scaling the team to accelerate our product development. Findy endeavors to create a global platform that unlocks a software engineer’s highest potential.
“We strongly agree with Findy’s vision and believe they will build a leading platform and service for engineering organizations. Findy has a great potential from a recruitment service to the improvement of productivity in engineering organizations,” added Kengo Horiuchi, general partner of Carbide Ventures. “Carbide Ventures is looking forward to contributing to Findy’s growth by providing our experience and expertise to go to market strategy and operations that we have cultivated at Treasure Data.”
Findy helps engineering organizations and individuals improve their development experiences. Founded in 2016 and based in Tokyo, the Engineering Intelligence products, Findy, Findy Freelance, and Findy Teams, are trusted by over 80,000 software engineers users and over 750 companies from start-ups to enterprises.
