Daxtra was founded in 2002 by Andrei Mikheev and Steven Finch, as a commercial application of their earlier postdoctoral research at the University of Edinburgh in advanced AI concepts across linguistics, neural learning networks and applied mathematics. With decades of combined AI experience, Mikheev and Finch observed that the manual ingestion, structuring, and management of resumes was both a complex data problem and a major business challenge for recruitment firms and corporate HR departments around the globe. Today, Daxtra enables clients to put the power of machine learning, Large Language Models and other emerging AI technologies to work to solve the practical challenges they face in matching candidates with opportunities.

Strattam’s mission is to work with great founders who have built great businesses, and the Daxtra team has proven again and again over their 20 years that advanced AI technologies can be harnessed effectively and safely to solve real world problems.”
