BANGALORE -- When Mumbai-based technology company Directi was looking to hire 25 staff proficient in Node.js, a computer program, it turned to a startup called Belong in Bangalore.

Belong was able to field 99 candidates for the role, eventually filling all 25 posts thanks to a software program using artificial intelligence that found the best candidates from 90 different professional communities, forums and networks, even if they were not actively looking for a job.
