Firstbird, a Vienna, Austria-based recruitment tech startup, raised €2m in funding.
Backers included JobCloud, investiere.ch, and the European Super Angels Club (ESAC).
The company intends to use the funds to grow sales, expand its partnership networks and to go abroad.
Led by CEO Arnim Wahls, CEO, and Daniel Winter, CTO, Firstbird provides a digital employee referral program that enables companies to recruit talent through employee referrals and make hiring processes faster and more efficient.
The company’s solution works by:
1) creating a strategy and customize any branded referral platform,
2) inviting employees to become Talent Scouts who are informed of jobs,
3) starting the sharing & referring stage with scouts asked to provide feedback on the candidates they refer.
The company is present in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.
