The demand for top talent far exceeds the current supply, yet the process for connecting this talent with opportunity hasn't evolved nearly as fast as the technology industry itself.
The need for new ways of identifying and evaluating talent is more critical than ever, but traditional recruiting tactics are haphazard, inconsistent, and can be off-putting to applicants. Similarly, for online gig marketplaces, there is often a race to the bottom.
Xpo aims to maintain a peer-reviewed network of talent registries in a decentralized manner, making the process of joining and connecting to relevant opportunities uncensorable, permissionless, and free of gatekeepers.
Privacy is a Right
We believe that privacy is a fundamental human right, that's why all Xpo registries are private by default.
We believe that the wisdom of the crowds can be achieved through collective co-ordination of individuals.
Humans over Algorithms
We believe that human beings are still the best judges of talent are other humans, not algorithms.
Incentives are Key
Carrots & Sticks can help align incentives between groups that would otherwise have no reason to co-operate.
Reputation over Status
We believe reputation is slowly earned and quickly burned, while playing the status game is zero-sum.
Talent is Everywhere
The internet has made it clear that talent is evenly distributed globally, while opportunities are not.
