Today is a big day for Breaz.
We’ve been acquired by Hired, the US-based career marketplace for the world’s knowledge workers. We’re incredibly excited to join Hired because it provides a great opportunity to leverage both Hired and Breaz’s strengths, and it will enable us to move even faster towards our long term vision of transforming the global recruiting market.
I could not be more proud of our team and all that we’ve accomplished. We’ve had the opportunity to work with both top talent and top hiring managers at groundbreaking start-ups and established companies, building teams from the ground up. We’ve experienced remarkable growth, which includes attracting more than 600 clients, doubling our revenue every quarter in 2015, and placing at least one candidate per day in Q4 of last year. In addition, we’ve built strong relationships with our partners, and truly pioneered a new way of getting a job in Paris. It’s been an incredible ride the past 18 months!
It’s no secret that the global recruiting market is very flawed and needs to be fixed, and I believe Hired is just the company to do it. Since their founding in 2012, Hired has facilitated more than $15B USD in job offers to thousands of talented individuals. They’re also expanding internationally, with successful launches in the UK market in 2014 and the Canadian market in 2015. The addition of Breaz will further facilitate their expansion throughout Europe.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be providing more details to our clients and candidates about how the acquisition will impact them. In terms of our employees, all Breaz employees will stay on and join Hired. Working with Hired, we’ll be able to provide a higher level of service, global access to jobs and talent, and greater opportunities than ever before.
I’d like to thank all of our customers, partners and employees for their support. We look forward to delivering the same outstanding solutions and service you’ve come to expect from Breaz after the acquisition is complete.
