We solve the pain of long hours spent on resume screening and initial virtual interviews. We develop better solutions for the workplace of the future.

MetroCity AI started last February 2020 and was formally incorporated last February 2021. We are a part of the Batch 10 startups of UP Diliman’s UPSCALE Incubation Program. We are one of the recipients of the Accenture startup grant via UP Engineering Research and Development Foundation, Inc. (UPERDFI) and UPSCALE Innovation Hub.
