2015 is turning out to be a very good year for eyeWyre Software Studios. The downtown Mt. Clemens-based firm has watched the volume of its work spike by 25 percent in the first quarter.
That has allowed eyeWyre Software Studios to hire a project manager, expanding its staff to a dozen employees and a dozen interns from Macomb Community College
and a high school intern from Utica Community Schools
. The company is also looking to hire a couple of software engineers.
"The first quarter of this year has been incredible for us," says Matt Chartier, president of eyeWyre Software Studios
. "There has been a huge volume of activity."
One of its major projects is launching this spring -- an online recruiting system for culturecliQ
. EyeWyre Software Studios designed and developed the software platform with a patent-pending algorithm that assesses and matches a company’s culture and needs to candidate’s employment requirements.
"The systems is pre-screening the candidate to fit the culture," Chartier says. "It's also doing the same for the candidate."
The idea is that there is a simpler way to find the right culture fit for an open position that doesn't require reading thousands of words from resumes and work samples. The hope is that the technology leads to better workplace matches with more longevity. It launched earlier this spring and Chartier expects it to gain traction through the rest of this year.
"It's a whole new way to think about recruiting," Chartier says.
