Metacafe Founder's New Startup: Clear Applications

Israeli paper The Marker is reporting (in Hebrew) that one of the Metacafe founders who recently cashed out and left has turned his attention to business recruitment technology.

Arik Czerniak is now working on Clear Applications, a company that he co-founded seven months ago with two other Metacafe ex-employees, Oren Blatt and Gil Solomon. The startup is developing analytics tools that will help medium and large-sized businesses filter through thousands of job applications and identify those candidates with the best personal and cognitive skills.

Blatt, a former fighter pilot for the Israeli air force, holds the position of CEO. The company reportedly has six employees and is self-funded. No word yet on when they might launch their product, but it’s definitely not imminent; the Clear Applications website still points to a parked page.
