SAN FRANCISCO , April 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lever, a software company powering recruiting for more than 900 fast-growing companies, unveiled a new integration today with LinkedIn Recruiter that will provide Lever customers with a faster, more seamless recruiting experience. The new integration – the first of several – comes on the heels of LinkedIn naming Lever an inaugural partner in the company’s new Talent Solutions Preferred Partner Program.
Announced last month, the LinkedIn Talent Solutions (LTS) Preferred Partner Program is a certified list of leading ATS providers who have integrated with some of LinkedIn’s most important products and share LinkedIn’s vision of providing a streamlined recruiting process for hiring managers, recruiters and talent professionals worldwide.
“The Lever team has combined exceptional design and UI to create a product that its customers and end users love. We look forward to working with them to enable integrations with our key products, and are very pleased to have them be a part of our Preferred Partner Program,” said Lee Womer, Director, Business Development at LinkedIn.
As the first offering of the new collaboration, the integration will provide customers with a smoother experience working across both Lever and LinkedIn Recruiter. Within Lever’s collaborative recruiting platform, customers will be able to view a candidate’s current LinkedIn profile, InMails, and Notes. Similarly, candidates that are already in Lever will be marked within LinkedIn Recruiter and accessible in one click.
“As both Lever and LinkedIn Recruiter users, we are very excited about the partnership! Our team is eagerly looking forward to saving time and having better visibility into recruiting activity across the two systems,” says Kelly Mullane, Head of Talent at Carbon3D, Inc.
Additionally, this integration allows Lever customers to provide candidates with a more efficient application experience by incorporating Apply with LinkedIn directly onto every job posting.
“Today's millennial workforce are charting their careers and finding opportunities in new ways," said Sarah Nahm, CEO and co-founder of Lever. "A talent platform like LinkedIn and collaborative recruiting platforms like Lever inspire companies to go beyond application forms and empower them to develop comprehensive talent engagement strategies. We are excited for what seems like a natural partnership with LinkedIn and the many opportunities to innovate together in the future.”
Both Lever and LinkedIn expect new integrations to be developed and released as both companies’ platforms and products continue to evolve. For example, Lever plans to roll out integrations with LinkedIn’s new next generation of Recruiter Spotlights feature and LinkedIn’s new Referrals product later this quarter.
With its unique candidate-centric approach and emphasis on talent engagement, Lever’s collaborative recruiting platform helps businesses source, interview, and hire top talent in a fundamentally more human way. Lever was founded in 2012 in San Francisco. The company has raised more than $32 million in funding from Scale Venture Partners, Matrix Partners, Y Combinator and Redpoint Ventures among others. Lever supports the hiring needs of hundreds of companies around the globe including the teams at Netflix, Yelp, Lyft, and Quora. Lever was recently recognized by RecruitingDaily as one of the top 10 HR Technology and Recruiting Tools of 2015.
