Quikr acquires Hiree to expand into White Collar Jobs
Today, Quikr, one of India's leading cross category classified businesses announced that it has acquired Hiree, and online hiring platform focused on white-collar jobs. Hiree includes some of the world’s largest IT companies and India’s highest valued startups in its client list. It will be merged with QuikrJobs and will operate out of Quikr HQ. This acquisition will further strengthen QuikrJobs’ offering to address recruitment needs for the entire spectrum of job categories across industries.
Talking about the move, Pranay Chulet, Founder & CEO, Quikr said, “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. Speed is in our DNA and Hiree’s offerings aimed at shortening recruitment cycle times is a great match with that.”
The combined entity will create a leading recruitment platform, which will connect over 4 million active candidates with recruiters across the country.
Manjunath & Abhijit, Founders of Hiree said, “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.”
QuikrJobs recently reached a milestone of over 10 lakh job profiles created through its missed call service alone. The platform also 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.
