The Resumator raised eyebrows after becoming the sole hiring platform used by Obama for America and the Romney Campaign. This bipartisan software company cemented itself as the 2012 presidential campaign software solution enabling those with limited hiring experience to staff efficiently.

Obama for America came to The Resumator in late 2011 to staff a well-organized army of campaign supporters that would quickly spread across the country. As fate would have it, the Romney Campaign turned to The Resumator as well, effectively getting its ground game up and running in early 2012.

The Resumator has quickly amassed an impressive roster of clients since launching in 2009. “We are giving fast growing companies the tools they need with software that’s easy to use and implement, which allows users to cost-effectively staff up with no prior recruiting experience. Turns out that is also the best way to staff a presidential campaign,” said Don Charlton, CEO & Founder of The Resumator.

Many factors contributed to President Obama’s win, like a good ground game, smart data and well-positioned media buys. In the end though, the ability to empower individuals played a key role. Campaign workers turned into hiring managers, who turned voters into volunteers. Yes, the campaign was people-powered, but it took the Resumator to recruit and hire those people.

“We’re not a household name, yet. So the fact that both campaigns did their homework and came back with The Resumator as their solution means a lot to us. It’s flattering to think not only is our product the preferred hiring solution for fast growing businesses, but also the preferred choice for Presidential Campaigns,” said Charlton.

“Now that we’ve handled the top of the ticket, we look forward to helping out in any upcoming local and national campaigns,” Charlton added. “With our software being used abroad, maybe we’ll help hire a Prime Minister next.”
