Talentry, a Munich, Germany-based SaaS social recruiting platform provider, closed its €6M Series A funding round.
The round was led by Nauta Capital, with participation from Global Founders Capital and Allgeier SE and a number of business angels including all three founders of Celonis and Carsten Thoma, founder of Hybris (acquired by SAP), who will join Talentry’s advisory board.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate investment in new product capabilities, grow the team, as well as enter into large international markets such as the UK and US.
Led by Carl Hoffmann, CEO, Talentry provides a recruitment marketing platform for companies to find the talent they need by utilizing their employees’ social networks. The SaaS platform, Talentry Jobs, enables digital employee referral programs as well as employee advocacy, allowing organizations to gain access to new talent pools while strengthening their employer brand. An additional module, Talentry Stories, allows recruiters to turn employees into brand ambassadors. By sharing corporate content that is directly linked to open vacancies, they can directly support their organization’s recruiting effort.
The platform also integrates with existing applicant tracking systems.
Talentry serves over 150 clients across all industries, including Henkel, Swiss Post, Vodafone, Axel Springer and Universal Music Group and employs more than 40 people.
