8 Jul, 2019

Job portal Shine.com, which is a subsidiary of HT Media Ltd, has been using newer technologies to improve its search engine to get an edge over the competition, a top executive of the company said.

"We have been updating our skill libraries so that our system can understand different skills and designation," Amardeep Vishwakarma, chief technology officer (CTO) of Shine.com, told TechCircle. 

He added that the company has been working on a machine learning-based product called Intellimatch that helps the recruiter to find candidates at a much shorter time.

"We have been using the product to suggest the right kind and the right number of candidates to a recruiter, helping them cut down the process of choosing candidates after sifting through a lot of resumes and it is automated," the CTO explained.

He also said that the company's near term target includes improving its search engine further while expanding its own internal team tech of 40 people to 60.
