Knockri was founded in 2016 as a solution to our own problems of facing discrimination in the hiring process. Cofounder Jahanzaib Ansari, would often apply to jobs and never hear back from employers. While feeling confused and looking for answers, Maaz Rana stepped in and suggested to Jahanzaib that he anglicize his name.
