I’m excited to announce that Lever is joining forces with Employ, the provider of JazzHR, Jobvite, and NXTThing RPO. With the addition of Lever, Employ now provides a solution tailored to the unique talent acquisition needs of every organization. Combined, Employ is now the largest modern Talent Acquisition Suite provider, with over 18,000 customers, 3.1 million job postings, and 490 million candidates.
Lever will continue to invest in our platform and services. Our team will work with our customers as we do today, now as one of the cornerstone technology offerings of Employ.
Lever’s path to innovation
Lever’s co-founders, Brian Noguchi, Sarah Nahm, Randal Truong, and I, came together in 2012 and started Lever on our journey to become a leading Talent Acquisition Suite. We learned that existing talent acquisition systems no longer fit how companies hired in a dramatically more competitive market for talent. In response, we set out to design collaborative, easy-to-use software that high growth companies could use to achieve their goals and build authentic relationships with talent.
Today, Lever provides talent acquisition leaders with a complete ATS and robust CRM capabilities in one product. The Lever Hire and Lever Nurture features allow leaders to scale and grow their people pipeline, build authentic and long-lasting relationships, and source the right people to hire. Lever Analytics provides customized reports with data visualization to inform strategic decisions among talent acquisition leaders, hiring managers, and executives. Lever’s platform also enables companies to hire with inclusivity in mind, helping measure and eliminate hiring bias.
I have Lever’s customers, partners, and team to thank for achieving this remarkable milestone. From the beginning, our customers inspired and motivated every aspect of Lever’s software. Lever has always applied design thinking, empathy, and curiosity to discovering innovative solutions. Nothing excites us more than building software that makes our customers more successful and simultaneously making something that our users want to use.
Thank you to every current and former member of the Lever team for taking part in building an amazing company. Lever has provided every one of us the opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute. Thank you for helping create a place where so many have been able to do the best work of their careers.
The next chapter
Going forward, we are excited to be a key part of the Talent Acquisition Software leader. Employ’s four solutions: Lever, JazzHR, Jobvite, and NXTThing RPO, are the most comprehensive set of talent acquisition offerings in the industry. We will continue investing in our existing plans for Lever, JazzHR, and Jobvite product development, and we will leverage our combined strengths to grow faster in combination.
Even as companies adapt to being judicious and selective in their growth plans, competition for key talent is more fierce than ever. Supporting remote and hybrid workplaces, engaging and retaining talent through internal mobility, investing in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and building authentic relationships with candidates remain critical strategies for a resilient organization.
Lever is excited to partner with you and your organization to help you assess and set goals for your talent maturity. We look forward to supporting you in your success!
