Bakround is an early stage, seed funded startup building a software product to help hiring companies and agencies calculate how well an applicant's qualifications meet job requirements (like FICO scores for job seekers).

The company is the founder's fourth entrepreneurial technology venture, with three successful past exits. Bakround is evaluating office space in Old City Philadelphia in the next few months.
