About the company

Mathison offers the first-of-its-kind innovative all-in-one system to manage diversity recruiting, strategy measurement, and reporting. The platform centralizes hundreds of inclusive talent networks and uses AI to help employers find candidates for their most important roles. To retain a pool of diverse candidates, Mathison gives employers a single place to manage their diversity hiring activities. This includes sourcing diverse candidates; reducing bias in job descriptions; candidate selection and interviews; and mobilizing team members in diversity hiring efforts with tools to build awareness and change behavior. Its clients include companies such as Hello Fresh, TripAdvisor, and Sonos.

The challenge

Mathison was challenged in accessing the public online profile data it needed from sites such as LinkedIn and other databases in order to build its platform and provide a diverse, centralized talent network for employers.

The solution: Mathison chose the Bright Web Scraper IDE in order to collect publicly available online profile data. This enabled them to access and collect massive amounts of the specific public online profile data it needed, critical in building its diverse platform and talent network. 

The outcome

With the Bright Web Scraper IDE, Mathison is able to outsource its data collection efforts so it can focus its time and resources on its ultimate business goal – advancing intersectional diversity within the workplace.  The company now works with a multitude of organizations and leading brands to help them create a workforce that is equally representative and inclusive of all races and ethnicities, the LGBTQIA+ community, people with disabilities, veterans, immigrants, and more.

“Bright Data has been an extremely valuable partner in helping us meet our growing demands for online data, as we’re able to outsource our data collection and management efforts. Without their technology, we’d be forced to build and maintain datasets manually every time we partner with a new organization, which would take time and resources away from our team’s ultimate goal of matching underrepresented talent with their dream jobs,”  Dave Walsh, Co-founder, and CEO of Mathison
