Online classifieds company Quikr has acquired online hiring platform focused on white collar jobs Hiree for an undisclosed amount. The online hiring platform will be merged with QuikrJobs and will operate out of Quikr headquarters, the company said in a statement.
“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,” Quikr Founder and CEO Pranay Chulet said.
The combined entity will create a recruitment platform that connects over four million active candidates with recruiters across the country, the company said. The enhanced product portfolio coupled with Quikr’s missed call service will make a larger talent pool available to recruiters for entry-level, blue collar as well as white collar lateral hires, it 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,” Hiree Founders Manjunath Talwar and Abhijit Khasnis said.
