Monkey tie takes into account the personality and interests of candidates to enable recruiters to identify people who share a genuine affinity with the culture of their organisation.
Jeremy Lamri was born in 1983 and holds a BSc in applied physics from Oxford University and an MSc in sustainability management from HEC Paris Business School.
He worked for three years as an industrial performance engineer for a European leading construction company, as a consultant in social and environmental issues, and as a financial analyst for a cleantech private equity fund in Luxembourg, assisting companies with strategic and operational issues, before launching the website.
He was the director of a French NGO focusing on sustainability awareness and international relations from 2010 to 2013. During the G20 Youth Summit in Paris in 2011, he represented the French Minister of the Environment.
He was a negotiator for France at the Rio+20 Earth Summit in 2012, as well as a member of the UN Major Group for Youth and Children. In 2013, he cofounded Monkey Tie, the first online recruiting platform that matches candidates and recruiters based on personality and corporate culture assessments.
He spoke about jobs and leadership at the One Young World Summit in Johannesburg in October 2013. He also provides talks and workshops for a number of important French schools and businesses.
He is the Head of Research, Innovation, and Prospective at JobTeaser and is now pursuing a PhD in cognitive science at Paris Descartes. He teaches at HEC Paris, ESCP Europe, and Mines Telecom and is an author and lecturer on the future of work, HR, organisations, and ecosystems.
The French government supports monkey ties. They recently signed a contract with the French Ministry of Employment and Social Affairs to develop a national platform for predictive career orientation based on Monkey tie data and technology.
Over 1,500 companies in France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Luxembourg already utilise the service to recruit in a more sustainable and responsible manner. Challenges Magazine identified Monkey Tie as the second hottest start-up in France, and it was named the French laureate for the European Business Awards 2014-15.
Because of Monkey Tie's success, the team was able to establish the 'HR Lab,' an innovation centre and incubator for 100 additional companies working on human resources projects. After only one year of operation, the company is already profitable.
Jeremy oversees a team of 15 skilled and dedicated individuals who are dedicated to making long-term and empowering matches between job seekers and companies.
