MODEL

We do not believe in traditional resumes

Big data analysis is changing the way we see and understand data. This is why we aim to create a new platform that will analyze historical career data to build scored competence profiles for each freelance consultant registered in the platform. We will analyze job experience, education and other inputs to establish a profile for each freelancer and to match them with companies.

We do not simply consider the amount of time a freelance consultant spends on a project and sum up experiences -  neither we do check for mere keywords in CVs. Our approach works with specific objectives alongside an holistic assessment of relevant skills and knowledge areas a freelancer must possess.

TRANSPARENCY

cherryfish is taking the marketing fuzz out of recruiting. By applying our rigid scoring mechanism to all relevant professional areas, we provide an objective and unobscured view onto all skills a freelancer possesses. With cherryfish it becomes transparent. It will be objectively tested if a freelancer fits the project requirements, or not.

Our 8+1 competence model makes the most complex and diverse freelancer career data easy to understand and comparable for decision-making. We make project staffing as simple as never before and always industry oriented.

high quality, PROGRESSIVELY

Delivering the best freelancer match possible is what our clients can expect from us. A promise which we kept ever since our start. But cherryfish does not stop there.
