Latest news about Recruiting and hiring software
2019. Jumpstart nabs $8.5M for a recruitment platform that aims to increase diversity
Jumpstart, which provides a way for organizations to tap into a wider pool of candidates, who themselves have been more carefully ordered by way of Jumpstart’s algorithms, has raised $8.5 million. The company today focuses primarily on filling entry/early-stage roles in “knowledge worker” positions such as engineering internships, junior-level marketing roles and business analysts. To date, the company has helped place people with big-name firms like Akamai, Adobe, Twitch, Lyft, Pinterest and many more. Like Handshake, Jumpstart (and others) are capitalising on an interesting moment in the world of online recruitment. Companies like Indeed and LinkedIn (not to mention behemoths like Facebook that are new to the space but are big enough to be formidable rivals) have long been able to leverage their economies of scale when it comes to sourcing qualified applicants, or for applicants to tap into an interesting pool of job opportunities.
2019. Fountain, a platform for recruiting gig and hourly workers, raises $23M
Fountain, which has built a platform to find and screen candidates for field roles — not knowledge-worker desk jobs, but hourly work that likely has you on your feet, has raised $23 million, money that it will be using to continue expanding its platform, the kinds of services it provides to its customers and its geographical footprint. Fountain already has some scale: The company currently sources and processes more than 1 million inbound candidate applications each month, filling some 150,000 jobs in the process. In addition to building engines to source candidates through a number of channels, such as traditional job boards, social media channels, a company’s own site and more, Fountain then helps with screening, interview scheduling, background checks (using third-party providers for this part), communicating with the candidate, handling the paperwork and, finally, onboarding.
2019. Jobpal raised $2.7M for its enterprise recruiting chatbot
Berlin-based recruitment chatbot startup Jobpal has closed a €2.5 million seed round of funding. The company has built a cross-platform chatbot to automate candidate support and increase efficiency around hiring by applying machine learning and natural language processing for what it dubs “talent interaction”. The target customers are large enterprises with Jobpal offering the product as a managed service. For these employers the pitch is increased efficiency by being able to rapidly respond to and engage potential job applicants whenever they’re reaching out for more info via an always-on channel (i.e. the chatbot) which is primed to respond to common questions.
2019. Zoho Recruit got AI assistant
Zoho unveiled the new version of its recruiting software Zoho Recruit. It brings AI assistant Zia to play. She understands candidates as humans with career profiles instead of a string of keywords on their resume. This enables her to find the best candidate for a job opening by matching their experiences, skills, and proficiencies with the job’s requirements and grading them accordingly. Also Zoho Recruit added Vendor Portal that allows recruiters to invite third-party recruitment agencies to submit candidates for your open jobs into your database for processing. You can also provide them with a self-service log and enable them to track the progress of the candidates they’ve submitted.
2019. Zoho Recruit enabled ‘Apply with LinkedIn’
Zoho Recruit has become a LinkedIn Talent Solutions Partner and now allowing recruiters to incorporate the “Apply With LinkedIn” button on all their job openings. This integration makes the job application process a complete breeze for candidates. Clicking this button will auto-populate all the common fields on the application with information pulled from their LinkedIn profiles, significantly reducing manual data entry. AWLI can also help minimize user input errors (especially on mobile devices). Replace the process of manual filling of candidate application forms for all your job openings with AWLI integration.
2018. Zoho Recruit integrated with five new job boards
Recruiting service Zoho Recruit recently integrated with five job boards: Hirist, Reed, Nexxt, Total Jobs, PNet. Job boards are not just a place for recruiters to post requisitions. Rather, they have transformed into dynamic pages where candidates maintain resumes so that recruiters can find them with ease. Consequently, choosing the right job board is more important than ever for attracting the right talent.
2017. Google launched recruiting service Hire
Google launched a new service that helps businesses more effectively manage their internal recruiting process - Google Hire. Like other alternatives, it offers businesses a cohesive applicant tracking service that’s deeply integrated with G Suite to make it easier for businesses to communicate with their candidates and track their progress through the interview process. Earlier this year, Google launches its Google for Jobs initiative and its job search feature in Google Search to help job seekers find the right job for them. Now it’s launching this new tool to help businesses manage their candidates. The missing piece here is giving businesses tools for managing job posting — and maybe posting them directly to Google’s new jobs widget in Search. As the company pointed out when it launched its AI-powered job search engine, though, it has no interest in doing this and is instead partnering with major online job boards.
2017. Zoho Recruit adds all new Assessments module
Online recruiting app Zoho Recruit now offers Assessment module as a pre-screening tool. You can create pre-screening questions, and then associate them with the candidate application form. The tool provides a mechanism for pairing relevant questions for each candidate to a particular position.
2016. Hiring service SmartRecruiters raises $30 million
Because managing a large pool of job applicants can be cumbersome, AI-powered recruiting service SmartRecruiters thinks its software has the right tools to keep you organized in your candidate search. Now SmartRecruiters is getting a $30 million funding round in addition to the $25 million already raised. The service counts clients like Square, Atlassian and Equinox gyms, who use SmartRecruiters to manage job postings and communicate about prospective employees. While there is a slew of competition from other hiring software platforms, including Jobvite and Brassring, SmartRecruiters developers believe that the space is large enough for multiple players, since countless companies need help with hiring.
2015. AI-based recruitment service Connectifier raises $6M
A couple of weeks ago, LinkedIn announced a new version of its recruitment product, giving HR teams the ability to look for new hires that most closely match the profiles of employees they already know and like. But LinkedIn was not the first to use search technology, machine learning and so-called “entity recognition” to update and improve the hiring process. A much smaller startup called Connectifier launched a similar product earlier this year, and now it is announcing a fund raise of $6 million to continue building out its platform. Connectifier’s growth (and LinkedIn jumping into the game alongside it) underscores an evolution not just in recruitment software but in the bigger area of vertical search.
2015. Zoho Recruit goes mobile
Zoho Recruit, the service for reviewing candidates, monitoring the progress of job openings, scheduling interviews, responding to emails and keeping track of your task list can be overwhelming, now has a mobile app, that lets HR-specialists work on-the-go. The app gives access to important modules and records on the Zoho Recruit server. If there’s an urgent sales position that needs to be filled and it can’t wait till you’re back in the office, use the search feature to lookup “sales” within the Candidates module, to display all candidates pertaining to sales. You can view these records, review attached resumes, check associated tags or quickly save vital information using notes.
2015. Zoho launched all new Zoho Recruit
Zoho announced the launch of the all new Zoho Recruit. The new version now has a sleek and user-friendly interface which is sure to give customers a pleasant user experience.

Using new Automation Rules, you can trigger certain actions like sending email alerts, assigning tasks or updating certain fields when certain specified criteria pertaining to records are met.
2015. Recruiting service Resumator rebrands as Jazz
Recruiting service Resumator launched back in 2009 and was first focused on getting the word about an open position out and managing the incoming resumes. Over time, however, it has grown into fully-featured recruiting platform. So the company has decided that it’s time to reflect this change in its name and it’s now going by the name of Jazz. Over time, Resumator put the focus more on who to hire, using a data-driven model, and that’s what Jazz now also centers around. Using this model, the hiring company first creates a profile of its ideal candidate that looks at basic aptitude for the job, but also at soft skills like cultural fit and work style. Then, throughout the hiring process, interviewers assess candidates based on this profile. Jazz will offer its service in three tiers. Using the most basic — and, at $149/month, cheapest — tier, businesses can use the tool to put their jobs online, just like with the earliest versions of Resumator. Businesses that opt for the second tier ($299/month) then also get some of the tools that helps them how to hire and those using tier three get all of the features described above.
2015. Breezy HR unveiled iPhone app for mobile recruiters
Breezy HR released a new iPhone app along with a video-calling feature for its core recruiting product. Breezy’s iPhone app matters to the service, because mobile is an important part of the recruiting lifecycle, and that the application will provide hiring teams and candidates a real-time touch point for their most common and time expensive tasks. The company’s addition of video chatting to its core service matters because face-to-face connections are key to help determine soft skills and culture fit. Breezy is currently focused on small and midsize companies that have between 50 and 300 employees and has oodles of competition, large and small, both selling products directly competing with its recruitment tool, and in related hiring areas.
2015. Recruiting app Greenhouse scores $13.6M
Recruiting service Greenhouse has raised a $13.6 million Series B. Greenhouse grows companies’ recruiting efforts in three ways. It aggregates a company’s job candidate sources like referrals, events, job boards, external agencies and social media into one hiring dashboard. From there, companies can A/B test their job listings and have their existing employees sent openings. For interviews, Greenhouse helps businesses structure their questions and how they’re asked so every candidate gets a fair playing field, and scoring answers is easy with its decision-making tools. Greenhouse makes it quick to compare candidates against each other and the desired role, as well as assess how the company is doing versus industry-hiring benchmarks. Greenhouse has 450 customers, including Evernote, Zenefits and Venmo.
2015. Cloud hiring software Workable raises $5M
SaaS hiring platform Workable has secured $5 million in additional funding from its existing investors. Workable enables smaller companies to post to multiple jobs boards, review candidates and schedule interviews. It replaces email and spreadsheets with an applicant tracking system that your team will actually enjoy using. While there are a large number of players already that are going after the cloud-based recruitment market — offering businesses online tools to create job listings, post them on different networks, and then manage the hiring process — what distinguishes Workable is the fact that it focuses squarely on the SME market. Workable claims to be attracting 300 new companies every month. Customers include other startups such as Conversocial, TransferWise and Vend.
2014. Zoho Recruit allows to process resumes directly from your mailbox
Online recruiting service Zoho Recruit has introduced a new feature - Resume Inbox - parsing tool that can process resumes directly from your mailbox onto the database.

The handy Reports view displays a summary of candidate records added along with links and also provides a summary of emails where parsing has failed and the reason. In addition to parsing resumes, you can automatically associate added candidates to specific job openings, provided candidates specify the Job ID or Job Title, in the required format, within the email Subject.
