The science behind the software

How the tech works

Rather than using experts to assess individual questionnaires (with all the risks of biases and inconsistencies), our AI simultaneously factors in over 10,000+ candidates’ performance, and uses this data to profile and rank them for positions. This work would have been impossible without the pioneers in Formal Epistemology at the University of Bristol, as well as the researchers at The Centre for Information and Bubble Studies, University of Copenhagen.

Sigma Polaris - The science behind the software

Seven skills assessed

Sigma Polaris | Seven skills assessed

Hard skills

Arithmetic reasoning

Does your job require maths or modelling? Are you looking for an accountant or a programmer? If so, you would focus on candidates who score highly in this area.

Critical verbal reasoning

This skill focuses on a person's critical and constructive thinking ability. It is also linked to qualities including perception, understanding, and logical reasoning.

Problem solving

Do you want someone who can identify and solve a problem effectively, and has the ability to consider complex abstract problems? If so, make sure you highlight the importance of this skill when creating your perfect applicant profile.

Eye for detail

You may need a new hire who notices mistakes or remembers details that others forget.

Soft skills

Risk taker vs averse

Do you require someone who prefers to try new things, or someone who prefers to embrace proven methods? Both can be incredibly useful but depend a lot on the role and remit.

Solo vs team

Is this a role that sits within a team or one that will work entirely independently? Depending on your answer, you will want to look for someone who answers these questions one way or the other.

Ideation vs implementation

Are you looking for someone who can come up with big picture ideas or someone who can implement big picture ideas? Our software can differentiate between these and offer the right profile for your particular job.

People can be biased, this platform can't

We have been fighting against hiring bias since 2019. And by the end of 2022, we aim to have prevented 100,000 instances of bias. Where other AI-HR solutions can actually increase biases, we have developed Sigma Polaris to filter out all unconscious prejudice from the screening process – delivering more diversity to your team and more fairness to the hiring process.

The perfect tool to help find the perfect fit

Sigma Polaris doesn’t just compare profiles dynamically. It delves deeper, providing you with better insights: so you’ll know more about each candidate before you even schedule an interview. Meaning that when your team does interview anyone, they’ll feel far more confident that they are talking to someone that can do the job well.
