About Us

Two years ago nugget.ai started out of the NEXT 36 program to help companies recruit talent. We built our product over a pilot with the Schulich SB and Optimus SBR, connecting MBA students in the program to open roles at Optimus. Today, we work with university career centres, corporate partners, and recruitment agencies to match talent to opportunity in what we are calling global mobility.

At our core, we believe science, technology and data can help us better understand people. We saw the potential in utilizing artificial intelligence, industrial organizational psychology and data science to extract key talent skills, identify skill gaps, and help candidates and employees unlock career opportunties.
