SkyHive, one of BC’s top technology startups in 2018, after two years of intensive research and development, today launched the first skills-based job matching and training platform. With the vision of tackling global poverty and social inequalities, SkyHive’s skills matching technology uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to connect people with work, and recommends people with training opportunities to support lifelong learning.

Hiring and Finding Work

SkyHive is the first platform to apply a skills-based, as opposed to job-based, match of work opportunities. Its skills matching technology revolutionizes the recruitment process by using machine learning to extrapolate the technical and soft skills possessed by workers, as well as the hiring needs of employers. By matching job seekers with work based on skills, it exponentially increases the number of opportunities a candidate is qualified for, and offers a larger and more qualified pool of candidates to employers.


As the Fourth Industrial Revolution approaches, helping people adapt to the fast-changing world of work will be a crucial task and challenge of our time. SkyHive will address this challenge by recommending training in areas that will directly improve an individual’s skills profile, and in doing so, help increase their earning potential. SkyHive’s application of machine learning technology to competency-based hiring and training methodologies is groundbreaking, holding the promise of inspiring a more confident and positive response to the future of work.

As a pending B Corporation, SkyHive strives to produce a positive social impact by developing projects that drive employment to five under-represented groups in Canada and around the world: Women, Youth, Newly landed immigrant, Indigenous communities, and Veterans.

“SkyHive has been established to combat unemployment and underemployment by combining an innovative recruitment methodology and advanced technology.” says Sean Hinton, CEO and Founder of SkyHive. “It enables job seekers to better understand how their background, talent, and abilities can be applied to the world of work, thus finding opportunities they never knew were available to them; employers are able to find highly-qualified candidates that they had never been looking for, while drastically reducing the cost and time-to-hire. We hope that our technology will foster labour market growth, lifelong learning, and overall economic development in the long run.”

The digital transformation brings significant changes and opportunities to today’s world, and SkyHive’s skills matching engine can be applied across a variety of industries and job types: full-time, part-time, contract, freelance, volunteer, internship, and gig (available soon). Job seekers and charitable organizations can access SkyHive’s technology for free; employers can sign up for a free trial before choosing a monthly subscription plan that fits their needs.
