While many HR tech startups focus on recruiting tools for companies, Intry focuses on getting candidates noticed. Its motto for job applicants? “You don’t suck.” Led by tech veteran Jennifer Sethre, the company plans to launch in early 2018 with a resume-building tool that adheres to an applicant tracking system's guidelines.
