hireEZ launched its Business Tier product for small to medium-size companies. The company said that, at a time when startups and small companies are contending with a tight labor market, it’s expanding its recruiting platform to help non-enterprise organizations have an easier time identifying and hiring talent.

The new Business Tier product suite will provide smaller recruiting teams with access to the hireEZ platform from the intake process to engaging with prospective talent.

“Small companies are often more nimble than their larger competitors, but they also face higher rates of churn and have fewer resources at their disposal,” explained Steven Jiang, hireEZ’s CEO and co-founder. “Our goal with Business Tier is to make the most advanced recruiting tools available to those non-enterprise teams, so they can remain competitive.”

Business Tier allows hiring teams to create projects that start the intake process, add access to all stakeholders, outline job requirements, set goals for recruiting processes and specify salary ranges. hireEZ also gives users the ability to parse job descriptions to align sourcing keywords with recruiters’ searches.

Small Business, High Growth

Business Tier also provides high-growth organizations with access to the hireEZ platform, including EZ Sourcing, EZ Engagement and EZ Collaboration.

In March, hireEZ launched EZ Rediscovery and EZ Insights. EZ Rediscovery helps employers update information in their ATS such as an individual’s work history, skills, email addresses and phone numbers. EZ Insights helps talent acquisition leaders develop strategic workforce plans by tapping into industry and competitor-specific benchmarking data. At the time, Jiang said the introductions represented “key milestones” on the company’s product roadmap.

In February, the company closed a $26 million funding round and, on the same day, announced a rebranding from Hiretual to hireEZ, which it believes better reflects its mission. The investment brought the platform’s total funds raised to $45.5 million.

The funding round was led by Conductive Ventures, a VC firm that focuses on “expansion stage” technology businesses.
