About

MatchingID is a start-up within Talent Tech founded by Anders Bergmark, Erik Scholander, Linda Waxin and Sanna Waxin in 2016, with the founding team going full time in March 2017.

By developing a machine learning based platform MatchingID will digitalize the sourcing part of the headhunting process. We are going to take the “hunt” out of headhunting and introduce the match. With a world wide talent gap, the talent now has the power in the job market and our matchmaking mechanism will always be talent first.

Our first product is being tailored for highly sought after talent, with what we call “hot skills” (we define hot skills as a highly sought after skill today and within the near future. We will map highly sought after skills through surveys with recruiters in the industries we engage in.). the name of this product is yet to be revealed this fall and the product is to be launched in 2018. Sign up as a talent or test client here.

Waxin left her top position in the PR Industry after ten intense years including the last three as CEO of Edelman Stockholm (now Edelman Deportivo) to travel the world and find her future. After mixing philosophy studies with board of director appointments, poetry with C-suite coaching and recruiting, she decided on MatchingID. Waxin is taking lead on business and brand strategy as well as talent, client and investor relations. Waxin has a double Bachelor in Media & Communications and Business & Economics and have been appointed both Super Talent and Super Communicator.
