About Wonderkind

Our mission

Wonderkind believes in recruiting talent based on their true passion. That’s why we’ve developed a technology with which companies can advertise their job vacancies on social media, Google, websites and apps. We hypertarget (as we call it ourselves); we attract talent based on their online interests and behavior, or in other words: that what makes them happy. And that, in turn, makes us happy. Our tool is the world’s first fully automated software, based on artificial intelligence - the next big thing in technology, for which we’ve already won several awards. Together we have the ambition to make Wonderkind big because we think the recruitment industry worldwide is due for change. Do you want to help us innovate?


Our working atmosphere

We are a young, easy going and ambitious company in full growth. The energy runs through our beautiful office at Zeemagazijnkade in Amsterdam. The office is open from 8-20h, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be there the whole day. It is important that you are flexible because let’s be honest: at a startup like Wonderkind it can be a little chaotic from time to time. Fortunately, you can always rely on your 60 colleagues, because we are straightforward, we like to learn from each other and we are dedicated.
