Employer Brand & Recruiting Strategist @ Very excited to announce that Tenfold's newest client is Greenhouse! Greenhouse is a truly innovative HR Tech company with world-class clients and a stellar product. That's why they've gotten so much buzz in our industry lately. For the past year or so, I kept hearing their name. My clients kept moving over to Greenhouse. Everyone's been raving about them, online and off. I was intrigued and wanted to know why, for the first time in my 20-year recruiting career, people were actually excited about their Applicant Tracking System! That's not something I'd seen before.
There's a reason people love them, love their product and love working with them. The work they're doing is unique. The product is innovative and different. Their client list reads like a Who’s Who of top brands including AirBnb, Pinterest, Dropbox, Snapchat, Buzzfeed and Slack to name a few. The culture is incredible and their core values are part of the daily fiber of the company. The people are insanely talented and motivated. Their CEO is crazy smart, has done this (successfully) twice before and is a great leader. It's a fun, smart bunch doing great work.
Greenhouse has quadrupled in size in the past year and continues to be in high-growth mode. That's where I come in... I'll be helping them shine a spotlight on their great people and unique culture to help them attract the best and brightest employees and keep skyrocketing upward. It's my first start-up and my first B2B, but shouldn't be too hard when there’s so much great stuff to share!
As one smart (and funny) person recently told me at one of their roadshows, "Greenhouse is the sexy company working with all of the sexiest companies." (Yeah, I already tweeted that!)
We have lots in the works, so stay tuned! I couldn't be more excited!
We're hiring! greenhouse.io/careers
