Company Overview

Vision & Mission

Our mission is to open up a world of job possibilities for all. Inefficiencies in the existing recruiting model mean the right talent and the right job don’t always end up together. Mya’s vision is to create a solution where job seekers get jobs faster, and hiring teams get the most qualified candidates by eliminating frictional unemployment.

Our History

Co-founders Eyal Grayevsky and James Maddox started with a simple goal: improve the hiring process for everyone. Eyal’s background in recruiting and James’ work in software development serve as the backbone of Mya, but it was Eyal’s experience with the recruiting black hole that provided the focus and sense of urgency. Mya was purpose-built to address the inefficiencies that plague the recruiting process through instant connection, meaningful interaction and ongoing advocacy—all powered by AI.

Our Beginnings

In 2011, our co-founders Eyal and James came together to build FirstJob, a leading job marketplace for early career job seekers and employers seeking internship and entry-level opportunities. Through that experience, they had first-hand experience with the pitfalls of the candidate experience and inefficiencies in the recruiting process for high volume hiring. In 2016, Eyal and James identified the opportunity to transform the recruitment process and candidate experience through automation and conversational AI. That is when Mya was born and quickly emerged as the leading conversational AI assistant in the recruiting market.
