BrightHire Raises $12.5M for Faster Hiring Decisions

Brighthire announced they have raised $12.5M in funding. This round was led by Index Ventures with participation from Next Play Ventures (led by LinkedIn Chairman and former CEO Jeff Weiner), and alongside existing investors including Flybridge Capital and Ground Up Ventures, future-of-work visionaries Laszlo Bock and Rosanna Durruthy, and world-class business builders like Nick Mehta, Gokul Rajaram, Erica Aliota, Dan Yates, Zane Lackey, Tom Monahan, and others.  

“Hiring is among the most consequential activities in every organization, yet the hiring process has traditionally been inconsistent, inefficient and very vulnerable to unconscious bias,” said Ben Sesser, co-founder and CEO of BrightHire. “We built BrightHire to bring a new level of intelligence to interviews, and we believe that when people have the right tools, they can fundamentally improve the hiring process for both companies and candidates.”

This funding will be used to accelerate investments in the team and to expand the interview intelligence platform.
