About us

Digitisation is progressing steadily and is now also a part of personnel selection. In order to face this global development and to meet the continuously increasing demand for innovative and new testing procedures, Prof. Dr. Christof Obermann founded the start-up company “BROOKLYNMAXX” at the beginning of 2018.

Brooklynmaxx combines high-quality diagnostics & IT competence, delivers substantial statements on an applicant’s potential and suitability and simultaneously creates an attractive and unique candidate experience. The procedures guarantee both exciting and practical content for the applicants such as profound statements on the fit and suitability of the respective candidates.

Newly developed test procedures aim to differentiate themselves from superficial questionnaires and monotonous cognitive performance tests and to digitize the analysis of potential.

All use-cases provide the option of customizing: we develop tailor-made solutions that reflect one-to-one your individual requirements and wishes.
