Berlin’s Jobspotting acquired by SmartRecruiters for undisclosed sum

Jobspotting, a job search and matching platform based in Berlin, has been acquired by US recruitment software firm SmartRecruiters. No figures were disclosed.

Jobspotting is a recommendation engine matching jobseekers with openings.

“Jobspotting is a pioneer in the recruiting market, having built a compelling business based on big data and machine learning technology,” said SmartRecruiters CEO Jerome Ternynck. The German startup’s tech will be integrated with SmartRecruiters’ Talent Acquisition Suite but the Jobspotting team will remain based in Berlin. SmartRecruiters is based in San Francisco and raised $30 million in funding last summer.

“Jerome and his team at SmartRecruiters are just as obsessed as we are about bringing technology to the old-school world of online recruiting,” said Jobspotting CEO Hessam Lavi.

“Hiring success rests on three groups of people: candidates, hiring managers and recruiters. By successfully harnessing existing data, we can make the hiring process work for everybody, helping companies find the best talent for their teams,” Ternynck added. “Technology can unify the components of the hiring process, and that is why we believe that Jobspotting is the perfect partner to accelerate the process of delivering hiring success to our customers.”
