Budu, a Moscow-based HR tech startup, has launched a new service Hunty, which allows users to recommend their familiar specialists for open vacancies in large companies.
In return for cooperation, the service offers a reward in case the specialist has passed a 90-day probation period. Otherwise, the startup returns the full amount to the employer or finds a new candidate.
The founder of the service, Anton Fateev, positions Hunty as a replacement for recruiting agencies. The main difference between the service and recruiting agencies, in his opinion, is “warmer” recommendations.
