RALEIGH, NC (July 14, 2016) — EmployUs announced today that following a year-long beta test with over 100 employers, they are officially launching their full product suite globally, driven by existing customer demand. Their iOS and Android app is now available to employers, connectors, and job seekers globally.
Serving 100 Customers
EmployUs launched in 2015 with a handful of local start-ups, middle-market, and global employers then the company rapidly expanded as they invested in sales & marketing fueled by their seed round investment of $750,000 in late 2015. As shared in the News & Observer, "100 Triangle employers such as Citrix, First Citizens Bank and WakeMed – found that one in five applicants who were referred via EmployUs ended up being hired." Speaking to the sales traction and customer success, "Achieving product market fit early is incredibly important. We are honored so many recruiting teams trust to help them connect people with amazing teams."
For EmployUs, their product meets the needs of small employers who lack internal recruiting resources in addition to the enterprise requirements of global employers. The software will integrate seamlessly into a company’s existing HR software, providing a turnkey recruiting platform of on-demand connectors filling available jobs immediately. One investor, David Gardner who previously was the Co-Founder of PeopleClick, which product recruiting software to more than 80% of the Fortune 500 shared his insights. Adding, “Our integrations will make signing up quick and painless. Unlike most hiring software, EmployUs solves the number problem in this industry, finding the best people for the job.”
Global Expansion Plans
Following their launch in the Raleigh-Durham market in 2015, EmployUs was committed to building a high-quality recruiting product, which could scale into new markets. Following this year-long beta test in the Triangle, EmployUs received overwhelming demand from their customers to allow them to post jobs and invite users outside of their Raleigh-Durham area.
"Over the coming months, EmployUs will be launching in all 50 states followed by international expansion," commented Ryan O'Donnell, CEO & Co-Founder of EmployUs. The company expects to be live across North America, Europe and Asia by early 2017 driven primarily by existing customer demand.
