Our challenge is to make our clients speed up and help them innovating and market shares wining thanks to quick recruitments.”

Muzzo proposes an algorithm able to scan each job offer and to list the most performing headhunters in every single job category, considering their geolocalisation, experience, sectorial expertise and track record.

Thanks to its platform and matching algorithm, Muzzo is able to present candidates who correspond to firms’ needs within only a few days.

Muzzo’s web and online platform has been initiated recruitments for a diversified clients panel including Leroy Merlin, Qonto, Payfit, Xerfi and the French ministry of Culture. This year Muzzo helped more than 115 enterprises recruiting while dividing by 2 the delay required for such a process.
