Aida Fazylova, CEO

Aida spent over seven years in talent acquisition before she founded XOR. She also studied artificial intelligence and co-founded OpenDataScience, an online community of over 39,000 data scientists, researchers, and engineers. She is passionate about helping recruiters understand technology and build tomorrow's future of work. When Aida is not working she is exploring new hot pot restaurants around San Francisco.


Nikolay Manolov, CTO

Nik is a former rocket scientist turned artificial intelligence expert who built XOR's first platform and oversees product development today. He is passionate about creating a labor market where the needs of employers and people are both met more efficiently. Nik famously competed in an AI competition (and won) to convince Aida to start XOR with him. When he's not working he is seeking out new adventures with his family.
