About Us

Diversity Recruitment Made Simple

Our Story

In early 2016, we began with a simple question: How can we improve the lives of women, minorities, and veterans in the workplace? After over a decade of climbing ladders in the tech world, Ilit Raz knew the odds were stacked against her as a woman in a male-dominated industry. And if she had it tough, were others having issues with accessing the same opportunities? Through a series of conversations with her peers, Ilit realized it was past time to work towards building a more equitable workplace for all.
That’s when she founded Joonko.

What We Do

Joonko’s technology plugs directly into your ATS, giving you access to qualified talent from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds. Everyone who enters the Joonko talent pool has had their expertise verified by one of our partners. From there, AI-powered skills-based matching recommends applicants by the criteria you provide. By bridging the gap between companies and candidates, Joonko has built a diversity recruitment platform that benefits all parties.

Why Joonko?
