Technical co-founder looking for a great idea to build

I’m helping a startup that has a fairly unique culture and is looking to hire technical staff.  One of the problems is that too many of the applicants are just a poor fit with that culture, despite the fact I feel the job description is pretty clear about it.  Most candidates are rejected quickly.  Besides spending time talking on the phone with each person to assess them (which is time consuming), are there any tools out there that help assess cultural (not technical) fit for candidates.  For example, get them to explicitly answer some questions (which is easy), make an intelligent guess (which is hard) and then provide an indication whether they would work.
