Basil Tarek Fateen

Founder & CEO, HireHunt

After graduating from the American University in Cairo in 2006 with a bachelors degree in Computer Science, Basil spent the following 10 years building expertise as a software professional with a focus on web & mobile development. His experiences ranged from startups to large corporations like Orascom to major software houses like Link Development where he was the Product Consultant. This is where he first encountered the recruitment problem as his department started to grow in size. A few years later, he would start the HireHunt pilot program where he built and battle-tested the next generation hiring platform which aimed to improve the process for both applicants and employers. HireHunt now has over 10000 applicants and 450 regional & global companies on board and has just closed it’s first round of SEED funding led by Cairo Angels.
