Glassdoor, the jobs and career site co-founded by former Zillow and Expedia CEO Rich Barton, just announced $70 million in fresh funding in a round led by Google Capital and Tiger Global. Existing investor Battery Ventures and Sutter Hill also contributed, bringing total capital raised in the Mill Valley, Calf.-based company to $160 million.
Glassdoor — best known for its numerical ranking of CEOs — is growing fast with its job search and recruiting platform. The 350-person company, led by former Expedia executives Robert Hohman and Tim Besse, now boasts 27 million members and more than 31,000 employer accounts.
“Our transparency is unrivaled, and we’re fundamentally changing how people search for jobs and companies recruit top talent. With our unique content and hyper-targeted recruiting tools, we help people find the jobs and companies they love and, in turn, connect employers with high quality candidates at a fraction of the cost of other recruiting channels,” said Hohman in a press release.
Glassdoor is not the only company in the career and recruiting space raising cash. Seattle-based PayScale announced up to $100 million in financing as part of a recapitalization deal with Warburg Pincus last April. As part of the deal, Warburg became a majority shareholder in PayScale.
