Jobvite Picks Up $15M


Jobvite, a Burlingame, CA-based maker of “social recruiting” software for companies looking to hire new workers, said today that it has raised $15 million in Series C financing. New investor Trident Capital led the round, which was joined by existing investors CMEA Capital and ATA Ventures. Jobvite said the funding would go to support continued “rapid growth” for the company, which has sextupled in size since 2009; the startup says its applications are used by over 500 customers, including Groupon, Shuttefly, Starbucks, Tivo Twitter, Whole Foods, Yelp, and Zappos.
