SmartRecruiters acquires jobpal:

SmartRecruiters, global leader in enterprise recruitment software, announced the acquisition of jobpal, the leading talent acquisition chatbot software.

Recruitment process automation

The move enters SmartRecruiters into the rapidly growing recruitment process automation (RPA) market, where the future of recruiting prioritizes human interactions and automates repetitive, time consuming tasks. In a world where TA leaders receive 4X the candidate volume but have half the resources on their team, automation is the only way to keep up and continue to offer great experiences to everyone. As the leading talent acquisition suite, automation will be deeply embedded into every step of SmartRecruiters’ recruiting workflow engine to unlock massive efficiencies for hiring teams.

The companies’ existing partnership and integrated technologies means new products are available now. SmartRecruiters is excited to introduce SmartPal, a family of recruiting chatbots that put repetitive interactions on autopilot and drive meaningful candidate conversations throughout the entire recruitment lifecycle to accelerate Hiring Success. By embedding a conversational layer on top of SmartRecruiters’ core workflow engine, SmartPal converts candidates 3x better, saves time, and enables recruiters to focus on more strategic tasks.


Megan Buttita, IDC Research Director: “In today’s climate, recruiting teams that have talent acquisition suites with automation and conversational AI are going to efficiently outperform the others. This is not just bolting on another point solution – the true power is behind connecting recruitment process automation directly into the workflow engine to optimize time and quality through every part of the hiring cycle.”


Luc Dudler, CEO at jobpal: “Since Andriy, Christoph and I started in 2016 we always wanted to make the candidate experience more intuitive, fun and engaging and at the same time automate steps and legacy processes in the TA function. This is extremely aligned with SmartRecruiters’ mission to connect people to jobs at scale, and we couldn’t be happier about them being the new home for our team and company. Being part of the leading TA platform now means the product will become even more powerful – stay tuned! Welcome to the world, SmartPal!”
