With Simplify, you don’t need to repeatedly enter the same information; the tool automatically fills out applications on different job profiles quickly.

Alternatively, you can download the Simplify Copilot extension to automatically apply for jobs you find outside of Simplify.

The company intends to position itself as a separate tool from LinkedIn, emphasizing enhanced privacy as only potential employers can access your information.

The founders conceived the idea for Simplify a few years ago while still students, applying for hundreds of jobs and repeatedly filling in the same information. They believed there had to be a more efficient way and launched Simplify in 2021, joining the Y Combinator Winter 2021 cohort.

Simplify is considered a useful startup for both recruiters and job seekers, leveraging AI technology to optimize employment data. Currently, the company has around 10 employees and is in the ideation and testing phase. Today’s $3 million seed funding round was led by Craft Ventures with support from YC, Hyphen Capital, GFC, and several industry investors.
