Our Team

Our vision is to help you land more interviews and job offers than ever before


Jobscan was born as a result of a job-seeker’s frustration. When James Hu found himself on the job hunt in 2014 he noticed that the powerful portals and filters companies use were simply parsing and ranking resumes with an algorithm based on their keywords. Knowing tailoring his resume for each application would give him the greatest chance of being seen, he built Jobscan from scratch to automate the process.

Now Jobscan is not just helping one job seeker, but thousands worldwide by giving them the power of large ATS before they apply to their dream jobs.

Jobscan is still young, but growing rapidly in our hometown of Seattle. Right near Pioneer Square, you can catch our team grabbing lunch in the park, at one of many microbreweries or soaking up some rare Seattle sun (always with our laptops in tow).
