India’s cross category classifieds business Quikr has announced acquiring of Hiree, an online hiring platform focused on white collar jobs.
Hiree, which counts world’s largest IT companies and India’s highest valued startups in its customer list will be merged with its jobs vertical QuikrJobs and will operate out of Quikr HQ.
The acquisition will create a leading recruitment platform that connects over four million active candidates with recruiters across the country.
The enhanced product portfolio coupled with Quikr’s pioneering missed call service will make a larger talent pool available to recruiters for entry-level, blue collar as well as white collar lateral hires.
“We launched QuikrJobs with an aim to bridge the gap between Bharat and India for the recruitment industry. We have created a successful business model there and it’s now time to level-up,” said Founder and CEO Quikr, Pranay Chulet.
“Joining forces with Quikr allows us to double-up our focus on innovating in recruitment space for both job seekers and our customers. Our customers will now gain the benefits of Hiree’s technology and massive scale of Quikr in parallel,” said Founders of Hiree, Manjunath and Abhijit.
QuikrJobs recently reached a milestone of over 10 lakh job seeker profiles created through its missed call service alone. This in addition to profiles created via desktop and mobile.
The platform offers an easy to understand role-based search for both recruiters and job-seekers across full-time, part-time, work-from-home and even work abroad options.
