The online hiring platform expands its services; opens to active job-seekers

Bangalore, May 18, 2015: myNoticePeriod.com, the company that pioneered just-in-time hiring and revolutionized recruitment in India, has rebranded itself as Hiree.com. The company has acquired 800+ paid customers in less than a year. The company counts world’s largest IT companies and India’s highest valued startups in its customer list. The portal is adding thousands of new jobseekers daily and has already crossed 170,000 profiles. Hiree.com is the world’s first and only destination that has jobseekers who are actively changing jobs. The company had recently raised INR 18 Crore in series A funding from IDG Ventures India.

Having only serious jobseekers gives an unparalleled advantage to recruiters using Hiree. The portal’s customers gain 20x efficiency improvement in their candidate search. With the rebrand and accompanying technology changes, the company now extends beyond candidates in their notice period and expands to a larger base of job seekers. Customers have liked the expansion and are happy to connect with active jobseekers in all stages of job change.

The company is at the forefront of innovation in the recruitment space. It has leapt ahead of competition by constantly adding benefits like smart matching algorithms, real-time alerts and a unique private messaging system. The recently launched powerful Android App for recruiters has allowed them to connect with candidates through call, whatsapp, SMS, e-mail or schedule meetings in real-time for future discussion. These have given tremendous benefits to all categories of jobseekers and employers.

“When we started myNoticePeriod, our aim was to reduce the hiring lead time for employers and give better offers to jobseekers. We started with smaller target group of notice period candidates. Given the success and customer feedback, we are now expanding the benefits of the powerful hiring platform to all categories of job seekers. Hence the need for a new name which is ‘Hiree’. With hiree.com we will grow even more faster, add innovative features and deliver further efficiency gains for our users.” says Manjunath Talwar, Co-founder at Hiree.

“We are not going after building a database of millions of candidates, we want to identify the most suitable candidates, who are very actively looking for opportunities and can join fast, including candidates who are on notice period. The core technology built to get most active candidates high within search results will further improve hiring efficiencies. This takes us closer to our vision of being the fastest technology driven hiring platform.” says Abhijit Khasnis, Co-founder at Hiree.

We are very convinced with the vision of Hiree.com, to improve the productivity in hiring and believe that their unique positioning of focusing on only active job seekers, has a huge potential. More than 12,000 employers have registered on the portal in a very short time, an early indication of the huge opportunity”, says, Venkatesh Peddi, Partner and Executive Director at IDG Ventures India.

The Hiree.com platform delivers unprecedented speed and pinpoint targeting. The outstanding Hiree.com team has from the ground up designed the next generation recruiting platform specifically for the on-demand ecosystem and generation." says Ravi Gururaj, Co-Founder of HBS Alumni Angels India.
