Greenhouse Acquires Parklet; Rapid Growth Continues With First Acquisition by Recruiting Leader

Acquisition Adds Onboarding to Award-Winning Hiring Platform

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 23, 2015) - Greenhouse Software, the leading recruiting platform, today announced the acquisition of San Francisco-based Parklet, a cloud-based employee onboarding and experience software company. Acknowledged as industry leaders and innovators in recruiting and onboarding, Greenhouse and Parklet develop the people tools that enable customers to build great companies.

Daniel Chait, CEO of Greenhouse, commented, "With the addition of Parklet's onboarding solution, we can expand the Greenhouse platform and extend the candidate experience to the employee experience. It's through this consistent engagement model and forward-thinking approach that new hires become productive employees, which optimizes the recruiting process more holistically."

Earlier in 2015, Greenhouse announced its product integration with Parklet. The linkage between the recruiting and onboarding workflows was well received, and more than 20 high-growth companies have embraced the combined solution. Joint customers include Pinterest, SendGrid and Sony Entertainment. 

"Greenhouse is one of a new generation of recruitment platforms that can potentially transform the candidate experience," said Josh Bersin, Principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "The company's acquisition of Parklet enables the company to extend this integrated experience into onboarding and ongoing employee communications."

Founded in 2012 by Dane Hurtubise and Andrew Hubbs, Parklet's investors include Storm Ventures and Greylock Partners. Similar to Greenhouse, Parklet also took top honors at DEMO, the tech conference that consistently recognizes category innovators.

Hubbs and Hurtubise will join Greenhouse as Director of Product Management and Vice President of New Initiatives, respectively. They will oversee the continued collaboration between the development teams.

Hurtubise added, "Parklet and Greenhouse share a unified vision for making employees successful and building lasting relationships with their companies. We're excited to start this next chapter together and onboard at Greenhouse."

Both companies are privately held. Terms of the agreement are not available.
