- Expands Vettery’s AI-driven talent solution with Hired’s industry-leading matching technology, technical assessments, bias reduction features, and over 3 million assessed candidates combined
- Advances global reach with a combined presence in 23 cities across the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, and France
- Accelerates Vettery and Hired’s expansion in technology and remote hiring and expands Hired into new verticals including marketing, sales, and finance
New York, November 23, 2020 — Vettery, the AI-driven talent marketplace that matches highly-qualified and individually-vetted candidates with top companies, today announced that it has acquired Hired, the leading marketplace for technology talent. The companies will combine to create the largest and most comprehensive talent marketplace for technology, marketing, sales, and finance hires.
Hired uses AI-powered intelligent job matching to help tech talent find a job they love at the world’s most innovative companies including Box, Dropbox, Postmates and Twitch. It rigorously vets every candidate before they are accepted to the platform, resulting in a marketplace of high-intent candidates with a 90 percent response rate and 60 percent of candidates accepting an interview, thus saving employers an average of 45 sourcing hours per role filled.
Vettery was launched on the premise of creating a more innovative and transparent hiring process, using its proprietary AI algorithms and analytics to quickly and successfully match employers to candidates in high-demand roles in technology, sales, and finance. Vettery partners with over 15,000 companies from innovative startups to established Fortune 500 companies to help them build world-class teams. In 2018, Vettery was acquired by global HR solutions company Adecco Group and the acquisition of Hired will continue Adecco Group’s commitment to data-driven recruitment technology.
“Hired and Vettery have independently succeeded in helping over 17,000 companies build top technology teams by connecting over 3 million diverse, vetted candidates to job opportunities,” said Josh Brenner, CEO of Vettery. “Passive candidate sourcing solutions like LinkedIn continue to frustrate our clients with low candidate response rates and a lack of up-to-date skills, while job boards result in high volumes of unqualified, inbound applicants. Our synergistic vision of upending the recruitment process will enable us to add immediate value to our clients by deepening our vetted candidate pool, improving our matching capabilities, and accelerating our global hiring solution for high-demand, technology jobs.”
Over the next few months, Vettery and Hired will launch a combined solution, which includes:
- Data from 1.5 million interviews and over 21,000 placements helping to create the leading predictive AI-based algorithms in the industry
- Combined expertise in over 75 roles and 325,000 skills connecting over 17,000 companies
- Over 3 million assessed candidates with 100% guaranteed response rate
- Custom technical assessments integrated into the automated interview process
- Bias reduction features including gender-equal salary offer recommendations and photo and name removal in search results
As part of the acquisition Mehul Patel, who has served as CEO of Hired since 2013, will move on to pursue new opportunities. Josh Brenner will serve as CEO of the combined company.
“Like Vettery, we’ve invested heavily in developing proprietary AI technology to deliver an efficient and unbiased hiring process for employers and candidates alike,” said Patel. “Joining forces allows us to scale faster and take our proven approach to skill-based hiring into new verticals so we can help more people find their dream job. I’m extremely proud of the entire Hired team for all of the work they’ve put in to get us this far and am confident they will continue to make a significant impact as part of Vettery.”
