Our mission

Promote opportunity, advance equity, and strengthen inclusion.

ajna originated from a legacy of changing lives.

What began as a wish, transformed into a dream, and then evolved into a goal for a recruitment team committed to improvement, has now blossomed into a groundbreaking technology that is only beginning to realize its profound potential to positively influence countless lives.

While numerous companies have diligently pursued skills-based hiring, there remains a significant room for enhancement in their commitment to equitable hiring practices, a formidable challenge when tackled in isolation.

ajna is taking the lead in bridging this gap by offering employers and talent the assurance of precise matches, ensuring that no job opportunity or profile remains overlooked.

Our name

ajna, derived from the Hindi language, signifies ‘internal insight’ and transcends mere wisdom.

It embodies the essence of the third eye chakra, symbolizing the sixth sense of the unconscious mind—intuition, and all-knowing perception.

In selecting this name, we aimed to encapsulate our enduring vision for our technology—a limitless platform with the ability to perceive the unseen, identify what is frequently missed, think on behalf of users, and deliver impartial insights.

It had to be the ultimate source of trust that everyone could rely upon.

Committed to taking action and changing lives since 2020.
