SmartMatch is a proprietary intelligent search engine that searches résumés and other information about job applicants and matches that information with job descriptions.[1] It was developed at between 2001 and 2003 and was acquired by Unicru in 2004. During development it was referred to by its codename Convex.

SmartMatch uses a variety of techniques from artificial intelligence research to produce high-quality search results.[2] Its three major components are:

  • A resume parser that can locate the principal structure of English-language résumés.
  • A domain-specific ontology that allows the extraction of concepts from parsed resumes
  • A set of machine learning tools that automatically extend and enhance the ontology
