Candidately announces a strategic investment from Bullhorn Ventures to accelerate the digital client experience for staffing and recruiting teams

Jan Alexander Jedlinski

Co-Founder & CEO, Candidate.ly

We are very excited to announce today that Candidately has received a strategic investment from Bullhorn Ventures.

The traditional process of submitting candidates to clients is fraught with frustration. Individual recruiters as well as national staffing and recruiting firms generally submit candidates to their clients as an email attachment. The problem is that candidates get lost in email, and it’s difficult to report on and manage the process. Everyone is looking for a better way.  

The old way creates a bad client experience and increases the chances that the best candidates drop out of the pipeline. No one wants to see 10 attachments in an email, have endless email threads, or wait 2 weeks for feedback. We believe in a better way and that every staffing and recruiting team deserves to have a stunning client experience. That's why we are building Candidately to become the #1 digital storefront for staffing and recruiting teams globally.

Bullhorn, the global leader in software for the staffing industry, recently announced the launch of Bullhorn Ventures to invest in early-stage software companies with the potential to deliver unique value to third-party staffing and recruiting firms. In addition to financial investment, Bullhorn Ventures provides mentorship and other resources to help speed up the growth of promising companies.

“Candidately is one of Bullhorn Ventures’ first investments, and we are very excited to help accelerate the company's growth in our ecosystem. Candidately has shown strong traction and customer adoption after being part of the Bullhorn Marketplace for only 6 months, which is a sign for us that the market is ready for a product like Candidately.” Nina Eigerman, SVP Alliances and Business Development at Bullhorn.

“We are very excited to deepen and accelerate our partnership with Bullhorn and together transform how candidate submissions are done.” Jan Jedlinski, CEO, Co-founder at Candidately

“Bullhorn’s thousands of customers can now use Candidately right from within their Bullhorn account and benefit from a seamless integration”. Benjamin Bartakoivcs, CPO, Co-founder at Candidately

Candidately’s customers range from boutique staffing teams to national staffing firms and the initial customer reviews on G2 show that Candidately is delivering a clear and immediate ROI:

“The best part of Candidately is both the ease of use, and the reporting function. With Candidately as soon as your candidate's profile is viewed you are informed via email. This has taken the stress off of our recruiters in wondering if our clients have seen our candidates' information. Ryan, TriStarr Staffing

“Candidately has allowed us to manage a recruitment project with multiple consultants and stakeholders being able to access candidate profiles and data in one place.” Sara, Talent International

The investment will be used to grow Candidately’s global team and accelerate the rate of product development to meet growing customer demand.
