How This Founder Built A Talent Marketplace Using AI and Automations

About the company:
Company Size:
Facing the Chicken-Egg Problem in marketplaces often meant a massive financial outlay. Before Bardeen, generating our talent profiles could have cost us over $1M. But with Bardeen AI, we slashed profile creation expenses by over 98%, seeding our supply efficiently and propelling early revenue. Bardeen was a game-changer for GitFlash!

Chris Strobl is the CEO and Co-Founder of GitFlash - a talent marketplace startup connecting elite developers and Silicon Valley based product managers to enterprise clients.


Building and maintaining a talent marketplace involves many moving parts.

Chris’s team struggled with prospecting, interviewing, contracting, onboarding, and integrating talent profiles into their platform. The cost of generating profiles is expensive and creating detailed profiles isn’t cheap.

Manual profile building is tedious and pricey, costing up to $1000 per profile. Chris’ team estimates that it takes 20 hours per profile at $50/hour for a supply side specialist to do the job.

Bardeen's Solution

Bardeen's automations enabled GitFlash to programmatically create 1000+ user profiles from their database for less than $20k. Chris says that Bardeen allowed GitFlash to copy-paste hundreds of LinkedIn profiles and use their AI commands to reduce profile enrichment costs by over 98% – compared to manual methods.

Bardeen presented a two-pronged approach to tackle this issue.

First, by using the LinkedIn scraper, GitFlash could copy-paste pertinent information about hundreds of prospects directly from LinkedIn.

This information was taken from hundreds of LinkedIn profiles

Then, this data is used to create a prompt handled by OpenAI, which seamlessly transforms a LinkedIn profile into a detailed and engaging profile within the GitFlash platform.

This combination turned what used to be hours of manual labor into an efficient and largely automated process.

The cost of generating each profile plummeted from $1000 to $20.
