Fancy Features (Gender, Location, GeoIP)


We automatically infer gender from name, using a database of first names that spans 151 countries. The accuracy on that is about 80%, so you can filter on gender from recruits fairly accurately without asking an explicit gender question. 

The location targeting and information in ethnio is done using GeoIP, which basically means we look at a combination of IP address and browser strings which generally include location. This practice isn't perfect - it only has about 70% accuracy, but it's meant to at least offer some ability to sort or filter on the recruits page.
