ZipRecruiter Raises $156 Million in Funding to Transform Hiring and Job Search
(Jan.4, 2019, /ziprecruiter.com/)ZipRecruiter, a leading online employment marketplace, announced a $156 million investment co-led by Wellington Management Company and returning investor IVP, and including participation by other existing investors. The Series B financing will further accelerate the company’s continued growth as well as its ongoing investment in artificial intelligence (AI)-powered matching technology and mobile apps to actively connect more job seekers and businesses of all sizes.
Since launching in 2010, ZipRecruiter has helped over 1.5 million businesses–from SMBs to Fortune 500 companies–find great talent and has received over 430 million applications for jobs ranging from admin personnel and truck drivers to data scientists and autonomous car engineers.
“The rise of AI has transformed how employers source talent and job seekers find work,” said Ian Siegel, co-founder and CEO of ZipRecruiter. “Unparalleled matching is the reason ZipRecruiter is a top-rated job posting solution and the #1 rated job search app for job seekers online. This financing will be used to double down on our market-leading technology advantage. ZipRecruiter is ushering in the age of smart recruiting.”
ZipRecruiter’s AI-powered algorithm learns what each employer is looking for and provides a personalized, curated set of highly relevant candidates. On the other side of the marketplace, the company’s technology matches job seekers with jobs based on factors beyond job titles, which introduces them to more industries and types of opportunities that they might be interested in.
To date, ZipRecruiter has raised $219 million in funding in total, including a $63 million Series A financing led by IVP in August 2014. The company has grown its employee base to nearly 1000 from 150 in the past four years and currently has offices in the U.S., U.K., and Israel.
