We’re excited to announce Glassdoor has raised $70 million in a new round of financing! This latest round is led by new investor, Google Capital, and existing investor, Tiger Global Management, with participation from existing investors Battery Ventures and Sutter Hill Ventures. Glassdoor’s total financing to date is now approximately $160 million.
Since Glassdoor’s launch in summer 2008, job seekers, employees and employers have felt the benefits of workplace transparency and how it can help match the right person with the right employer. Glassdoor now welcomes more than 27 million members worldwide and unlike any other site, offers the very latest job listings paired with millions of user-generated reviews, ratings, salary reports and more on 340,000 companies in 190 countries.
In addition to establishing itself as one of the world’s largest jobs meta-search engines, Glassdoor continues to disrupt the employment industry, growing to be an effective recruiting tool for employers. Glassdoor for Employers offers companies a variety of recruiting products and analytics dashboards to help them actively manage their employer brand, engage with job seekers and employees, and create cost-effective recruiting campaigns to hire quality talent. To date, Glassdoor partners with more than 2,000 employer clients, including General Mills, Goldman Sachs, Cigna, Dell, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Facebook, Groupon, HP, Intuit, Procter & Gamble and Twitter. Plus, more than 31,500 employers have registered for a Free Employer Account over the past year, allowing them to manage sections of their company profile and respond to reviews.
With this new round of funding, we will continue to expand our services to both job seekers and employers around the world. In this past year alone, Glassdoor has traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with Vice President Joe Biden to help get Americans back to work, launched a new section for people to share and research benefits at companies, introduced our OpenCompany program to recognize employers that embrace transparency, and we’ve expanded into France, our first non-English market (with more coming soon!).
While these are just some of the things we’re most proud of in 2014, we know 2015 and beyond will bring even bigger things. At the end of the day, we are committed to helping people find jobs they love, and matching great talent with the right companies. We want to thank you – our members – for helping us build a community founded on bringing transparency and information to the forefront of finding a job.
While we’ve come a long way, there is still much work to be done to support our mission of helping people everywhere find jobs and companies they truly love. We look forward to working with all of you to bring even greater transparency into the jobs and recruiting arena for many years to come!
