BERLIN, May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Applicant network designed to quickly match hot new candidates with the right companies
softgarden (http://www.softgarden.de), Europe's largest cloud provider for e-recruiting solutions, has completed a successful round of financing of €3 million together with Cipio Partners and Neuhaus Partners. This new capital is expected to accelerate the growth of the Berlin-based company, which grew its customer base by 50 percent during the first quarter of this year alone, both through the expansion of its own internal sales team and through partnerships.
The goal of the softgarden network is to match small and medium-sized companies with suitable qualified applicants more quickly. Candidates who have submitted applications to companies through softgarden and who are not eligible for consideration for the job in question are added to a pool of applicants available to SMEs, who can simply click to invite matching applicants to interview for a vacancy "These applicants are red hot. They've just recently applied and are actively seeking jobs," explains Dominik Faber, founder and CEO of softgarden." However, it is not only companies that are expected to benefit from softgarden's network and technical expertise ‒ but applicants as well. To help them find the right job, softgarden plans an application to help applicants throughout the entire application process.
The company expects that its softgarden e-recruiting solution will enable particularly small and medium-sized companies to gain a competitive advantage in the battle to attract the best candidates. Until now this has been difficult. Only large companies with the ability to invest time and money in the recruiting process have been able to use professional career websites to post job openings. SMEs now have access to all of this for an affordable monthly subscription. softgarden customers can also use the software-as-a-service solution (SaaS) to chat with softgarden's recruiting specialists and obtain valuable information to help them succeed with their recruiting campaigns.
