Making recruiting delightful and efficient for everyone


Our Mission

AllyO was created for one goal: Make recruiting delightful and efficient for everyone. 

As the leading end-to-end recruiting AI and automation software, AllyO automates the most tedious and time-consuming pieces of talent acquisition. The result? Organizations are able to accelerate their time-to-hire by 4X and delight candidates by 2X industry standards. 


Our Story

Co-founders and longtime best friends Ankit Somani and Sahil Sahni created AllyO in 2015 because they recognized recruiting is HARD, and they wanted to fix it. Using their combined knowledge from tenures at Google, McKinsey, MIT and more, they designed conversational AI that revolutionized recruiting. 

Over time, the AllyO team uncovered its core value of “Customers Before Company.” They realized that if every business decision puts the needs of their customer first, success for the company and its people would follow.

It’s because of this core value that AllyO has earned the trust and partnership of 15 percent of the Fortune 50 and has received the backing of tier 1 investors such as Google, SAP, Randstad, Bain and Cervin Ventures. AllyO has demonstrated hyper-growth of 3X year over year, is the most funded and highest valued AI recruiter worldwide, and has earned back-to-back HR tech product of the year awards by Human Resource Executive®.
