BrightHire Raises $20.5M to Build the Future of Hiring

BrightHire, a NYC-based intelligent interview platform, secured a $20.5M Series B funding round. The round was led by 01A with participation from Index Ventures, Zoom Apps Fund, Ground Up Ventures, Haystack, and J Ventures.

CEO Ben Sesser said: “For the past year, we’ve been making Interview Intelligence a reality. Customers like InVision, Salesloft, Mural, and Angi are using BrightHire to transform their hiring processes. As we’ve watched interview volumes grow by north of 35% every month, it’s clear that more and more hiring teams are discovering how essential it is to evaluate candidates in their own words.”

BrightHire transforms the quality of hiring because every company should have the tools they need to make confident and fast hiring decisions, and every candidate deserves a fair and objective hiring experience.

The company intends to use the funds to further accelerate the roadmap, as well as fund business expansion and continued growth.
