About Koru

Koru is the leader in predictive hiring.

We’re mobilizing the Grit over Grades revolution, transforming the way companies screen, select, and develop early career talent. We apply predictive analytics to leading assessment science to deliver a company’s unique performance fingerprint. We deploy the fingerprint with a fast, easy-to-use tool for recruiters to efficiently screen and select high quality, diverse candidates.

Our assessment science is based on those intangibles that have been proven to be predictive of performance, the Koru7™.

We work with some of the world’s most successful enterprises as well as high-growth, innovative companies throughout the U.S.

We feel lucky to wake up every morning and tackle this problem head on.

We are Koru.

Our Principles

Before we knew what our company would be, we wrote down the principles we would use to build it. These define who we are and what we hold ourselves accountable to every day.

Be your best self, especially when it’s hard.
Have hard conversations in the moment. Feedback is a gift.
Practice radical authenticity.
Anything is possible, but not everything is possible.
Have the courage to fail fast and cheap.
Invest in the right relationships.
Be an owner, never a victim.
