CutShort is a bootstrapped startup that is disrupting the older job boards.

Product Overview:

CutShort is a natural response to the sad state of recruiting. Recruiters are busy. Professionals are busy. Job portals are noisy and spammy.

CutShort has an innovative solution that uses AI for sourcing, matchmaking & workflow automation to declutter and connect these two sides with each other.


AI matchmaking that auto-ranks candidates for each job based on the industry background, skill strength and educational history.

AI enabled sourcing that reduces the burden of job applications via a conversational bot that works on email.

An AI assistant that automates repetitive stuff and reduces effort for recruiters.
