What’s New: WhistleTalk; Workable HR; RemarkableHire; Headhuntable; Gild; Much Much More

A new employee referral tool, a new way to source IT employees, a career site for developers and engineers, a young startup working on verifying resumes, and an applicant tracking system. It’s all below.
First, out of Bangalore comes WhistleTalk. The CEO tells me the company has closed a round of seed funding, and have seven full-time employees and a few freelancers.
In short, WhistleTalk’s  a way for people to earn a bonus by sharing a job opening with their friends via social media. Here’s a short video about it.
Meanwhile, out of London and Athens comes Workable HR, an applicant tracking system based more on a LinkedIn profile than a resume.
This page  gives a little overview of what seems like a simple, clean, system for customizing career pages, publishing openings on social media, and asking some basic screening questions. Click the graphic at right to take a look at one screeenshot.
Workable, which has four full-time employees, has raised 100,000 Euros, or about $125,000, of seed funding from private investors, and is working on raising another $750,000.
On to RemarkableHire, a new sourcing tool based on (ready for another buzzword?): social evidence. Candidates are ranked not based on how many keywords they repeat in a resume, but on their expertise, as shown on social media. It’s about $300-350/month, and is getting some interest from Amazon, as well as staffing firms like Kforce.
Again, a video:
RemarkableHire has two employees, is bootstrapped, and is operating out of McLean, Virgina.
