About My Ally
Empowering Recruiters To Hire Smarter
Three years ago, college buddies Deepti Yenireddy and Naveen Varma Alluri found themselves becoming increasingly frustrated with a problem shared by millions the world over - they were spending multiple hours each day setting up, scheduling, and rescheduling business meetings. The technically-inclined graduates of Indian academic powerhouse IIT Madras (an institution akin to America’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology) decided they would set out on a mission to automate away one of the life’s biggest universal time-sucks. They co-founded Skedool.it, a platform that would use AI and machine learning to function as a “smart-assistant” for busy professionals. Skedool.it was tested in a number of different applications (sales, retail, healthcare, etc), but was quickly and noticeably pulled by the market towards one red-hot pain point - corporate recruitment. Numerous requests for a more robust and focused product aimed at tackling the particular scheduling challenges faced by today’s talent acquisition professionals led the co-founders to make a slight pivot, and such is how My Ally was born. Momentum built, and as prospects turned into customers, Deepti and Naveen began to feel they were onto something. Great companies are the result of great people working together to do great things. By empowering talent acquisition teams to hire more great people, My Ally is helping the world to build many great companies - and making an impact on such a grand scale is something that our team is incredibly excited about.
