It is very rare that you see a company which provides so elegant a solution to such a massive problem that it will fundamentally alter an entire industry.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 8, 2008
BountyJobs today announced that it has closed on $12 million in financing, led by venture capital firm, Greylock Partners, to help fuel its growth as a destination where employers can engage with headhunters to find top talent. The funding is in addition to the $3.5 million that BountyJobs initially raised from RPM Ventures, Scott Shleifer of Tiger Global, and John Osher, entrepreneur.
"At BountyJobs, we are focused on enhancing communication between employers and headhunters and breaking down all the frictions that once made transacting business between the two parties difficult," said Jeremy Lappin, CEO of BountyJobs. "As a result, employers get access to talent faster than any other means available."
BountyJobs provides employers with access to thousands of professional headhunters. Since its launch in November of 2006, it has doubled revenue for six consecutive quarters and is now placing thousands of employees annually at more than one hundred of the Fortune 500.
Asked why he made the investment in BountyJobs, David Strohm of Greylock said, "It is very rare that you see a company which provides so elegant a solution to such a massive problem that it will fundamentally alter an entire industry."
