Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Teamscope.io is efficient, friendly and easy to use platform. It brings a lot of insights for yourself and for the people around you.

    Cons: 

    The best way that TeamScope might improve is by providing more detailed analyse when the personal profiles are finished.

    I am part of the Enhancv team and we are currently working with TeamScope. It help us get our teams better, be more efficient and think deeply about our hiring process.

  • Pros: 

    Allows team leaders to analyse existing dynamics within the team and makes suggestions on ways to improve.

    Cons: 

    Only in English

    Based on individual test results it would be very interesting for user to get insights in to what rolls/teams other users with similar profiles are in.

Hey Hunters! I am Alo, the co-founder and CEO of Teamscope, and I’m really looking forward to your feedback on our product beta. We have been working with leading executive search firms and behavioral scientists over the past two years to bring to market our talent analytics platform Teamscope. Our algorithm relies on big data analytics to profile the existing team and to help the team leader make an unbiased, data-driven hiring decision. It takes only 10 minutes to get started: - Take a couple of short tests and/or connect your social media to get your personal profile showing your core values and main strengths when working in a team; - Invite your team to join to create your team profile and find out what characteristics you should look for in a candidate; - Invite candidates to evaluate how they fit in with your culture and how they would complement your team. We are still in beta, so apologies if some parts of the UX/UI are still confusing, but I wanted to get really early feedback from the PH community, I am sure your feedback will help us a lot. Let’s chat below, Alo

@aloarro Hi Alo, really interesting work here - what role do you think it will play in teams who are actively trying to improve diversity? i.e. trying to add to/expand their current culture?
Alo ArroMaker@aloarro · Building exceptional teams @Teamscope
@abadesi great question. Actually, the algorithm is designed to point out the gaps in your team composition and will advise you to look for candidates that can fill in those gaps. To simplify - the algorithm will look for similarity in values (that will help with team cohesion, goal setting, team motivation), and diversity in (almost) every other dimension (that will help create the necessary creative tension). Did that clarify a bit?
Abadesi@abadesi · Community at Product Hunt
@aloarro Yes thanks - super interesting!

@aloarro Hi Alo! Exceptional idea! I was playing around with Teamscope (on Safari) and when I wanted to add a team member, I wasn't able to find the invite new member button. Tried on Chrome, and the button was there. Long story short: there's a bug on Safari (last version, macOS) that doesn't display the button until there's a page resize or something similar. (I guess it's caused by a CSS property related to the .talentpool-footer CSS class if it helps!) Cheers and keep up the good work!

@estelineink Thank you so much! On it!
Risto Rossar@risto_rossar
I understand that you are using in addition to standard tests also social media information for evaluate candidates. Can you elaborate in simple language how you can use the social media and AI to outperform the standard tests?
Alo ArroMaker@aloarro · Building exceptional teams @Teamscope
@risto_rossar great question. We rely on mypersonality.org research and IBM Watson AI to make sense of the social data. For active social media users it's just a quick way to reduce the time it takes to create their profile, and normally the results are as accurate as test results. But that's optional - users can always skip the social connection and just take a couple of tests.
This seems kinda similar/opposite of workshape.io - https://www.producthunt.com/post...
Alo ArroMaker@aloarro · Building exceptional teams @Teamscope
@apsops great reference, thanks. Workshape helps match people based on technical skills, we do the same based on "soft" skills like personality, values, and attitudes. I would say the solutions complement each other
Rait Arro@rait_arro
Interesting take on team hiring. How do you generate team data from personal profiles?
Alo ArroMaker@aloarro · Building exceptional teams @Teamscope
@rait_arro teams are made of people and in the end, the values and attitudes of your team members is the most objective predictor of what your team culture is like. Mathematically, we calculate all the min, max, avg, variances of all individual characteristics - that is around 10,000 data points for an average team of 7 - and generate feedback based on that.
Stowe Boyd@stoweboyd · futurist, researcher, iconclast
@rait_arro @aloarro So you seem to be focused on the fit of a candidate with the immediate team that they might work with. What about the fit with the larger company, which isn't 7 plus or minus 2 members, but hundreds or thousands of people?
Alo ArroMaker@aloarro · Building exceptional teams @Teamscope
@stoweboyd we have indeed seen that engagement and happiness at work is mostly determined by how well one gets along with their team and manager, that's why we bring culture fit assessment down to team level. But you are right that we should have an organization view as well - the idea is in the pipeline and probably we'll have a solution for that in about 6 months.
