Our history

Meritocracy was founded in 2014 by Riccardo Galli and Alberto Manassero with the support of United Ventures, one of the main venture capital operators in Italy. On October 2015, Meritocracy obtained from United Ventures a second round of financing with the goal to support technology development and to expand its presence on the Italian market. On May 2018 Openjobmetis acquired 100% of Meritocracy S.r.l., the company behind Meritocracy. The goal of Meritocracy is now to continue the expansion on the European market in particular in Germany and to become the main point of reference for digital professions in Europe.

Who we are

We are the digital head-hunter that narrates the most innovative and digital companies in Europe from the inside to attract the best talents.<br/>Our clients are primarily digital-native startups, innovative multi-national companies and consolidated businesses going through a digitalization process.<br/>Our proprietary technology, based on AI elements, spots the best fitting talents and leads them to discover companies through a virtual tour. The visual communication, by empowering client companies to convey to candidates their uniqueness and desirability traits, triggers a pre-selection process and reduces false expectations.<br/>Compared to a traditional head-hunter, we bring to client companies highly motivated professionals with lower costs and more quickly plus we offer to the candidates a highly transparent and motivating selection experience.

What we believe in

We want to help people to pinpoint the best opportunities to grow and fulfil their potential. We strongly believe that work is the way each of us can put our passion and energy into creating value. And we're convinced that choosing a career requires careful consideration, as it will inevitably lead to challenges as we embark upon a journey of personal and professional transformation.<br/>It might sound odd, annoying even, but on Meritocracy you can't select locations, only ambitions. Above all, we want to offer the best opportunities for each of you. Wherever they may be.
