Sympa, a provider of core HR software in the Nordics and Recruitee, a provider of applicant tracking systems (ATS) in central Europe and the USA, are combining to create a premium digital HR solutions offering. Providence Strategic Growth, a growth firm that spun out of Providence Equity Partners, has agreed to back the merger of the two companies. PSG will become the majority shareholder in the combined company.
Keijo Karjalainen, CEO and co-founder of Sympa, commented: “We are excited to partner with Recruitee, one of the leading ATS providers to be able to offer a comprehensive suite of products to our customers. We’re thoroughly enjoying working with the teams at Recruitee and PSG and can’t wait to continue this strong partnership on what will be an exciting – not to mention fun – journey.”
The collaboration brings both companies’ software solutions under one umbrella, providing companies with a full suite of advanced tools for automating HR tasks and amplifying the expertise of HR professionals. Going forward, customers will benefit from the expanded combined product offering, consisting of a leading talent acquisition platform and a comprehensive core HR platform, as well as the group’s significantly increased geographic reach.
