We Are Censia

Why we are here

It’s time for an intelligent solution that gives talent acquisition a seat at the revenue table. Every day that a position goes unfilled is a day that company is losing value. Finding the right talent is imperative to the success of every company. 

This fact highlights the fundamental importance of talent acquisition. As a people-obsessed company, our mission is to empower enterprise companies in matching opportunities to ideal candidates at scale.

Our technology facilitates talent professionals to be strategic partners in their companies. We do that by equipping recruiters with artificial intelligence solutions that dramatically shorten the recruiting cycle, lower turnover, and automate the low-value, manual recruiting processes bogging talent teams down today.

We are achieving our mission through the power of artificial intelligence.
