Bengaluru-based online recruitment firm Hiree brings together recruiters and potential candidates actively looking for a new job.
As a company that claims to have pioneered the just-in-time hiring and revolutionised recruitment in India, Hiree, founded by two former employees of Yahoo, has acquired over 1,200 paid customers in less than a year. The company works with world’s largest IT companies and India’s “highest valued startups”. The portal adds thousands of new jobseekers daily and has already crossed well-over 480,000 profiles today with over 120,000 active users.
It uses social media among others to attract jobseekers to upload their resumes.
Unlike the jobsites that ask companies to list jobs, thus giving companies a flood of applications, Hiree.com gives companies access to a database of job seekers for a subscription fee. The company said that while finding a recruit on jobsites is like finding needle in a haystack, Hiree connects the right candidates to companies.
The start-up, founded in December 2013, partners leading companies and helps them hire quality talent with the help of technology that it says is innovative, simple and efficient. Hiree uses a technology platform that uses big data and analytics, a pending patented technology which powers the search ranking, based on relevant factors. With over 1,200 active recruiters signed up with them, Hiree helps some of the major corporate brands like India Bulls, Cognizant, Altair, Microland and also some of the sought-after startups such as Taxi For Sure, Common Floor, Ola, TeeWee among others.
In its earlier avatar, they had started MyNoticePeriod.com, but found it to be too narrowly focussed on jobseekers serving their notice periods. It then hit upon including within it all active jobseekeers, thus increasing the pool of talent from which firms could hire.
Hiree, raised `18 crore Series-A funding from IDG Ventures India. Hiree has now introduced ‘selfie resume’. “This will give a recruiter a better picture of the candidate and the recruiter can assess them for some abilities even before calling them for an interview,” said Abhijit Khasnis, co-founder, Hiree.com.
