Save 40% when upgrading to Creative Cloud : For existing CS3 or later customers
Editor’s note: In late August, we shared their press release reporting the close of $22 million in funding including a $17 million Series C equity round, led by Investor Growth Capital, and an expansion of the company’s debt facility. Granite Ventures, who led HireVue’s previous round, Peterson Ventures, who led HireVue’s A-round, new investors Rose Park Advisors, and the law firm of Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich and Rosati also supported this round. We would say they are very happy right now!
HireVue Drives Growth of Digital Interviewing Category, Disrupting Antiquated Ways of Recruiting
Triple-digit sales and user growth, new customers and new board member, Doug Dennerline, showcase company’s leadership and overall category growth
Contributing to the growth is the convergence of social, mobile, and video technology to more quickly, fairly and tellingly connect candidates with recruiters and hiring managers.
Additionally, HireVue unveiled the world’s first social interview application, was named 2012 HR Product of the Year, and welcomed an important new board member, Doug Dennerline.
“As we continue to develop and bring pioneering, industry changing products to market, we’re closing more deals, hiring more talented employees and building our leadership in the space,” explains David Bradford, HireVue’s CEO.
“In 2013 we’ll continue to see widespread adoption of popular technologies like digital interviewing, which not only changes the recruiting model for businesses and job seekers alike, but also the financial implications of inefficient recruiting processes.
“In addition to company growth, bringing Doug onto our board is very strategic for HireVue’s growing industry presence based on his experience in helping grow brands such as Cisco, Salesforce.com and SuccessFactors.”
