CareerBuilder has become 100 percent owner of the Dutch recruitment software company Textkernel. Founder and CEO Jakub Zavrel and CCO Gerard Mulder (photo) have sold their shares to the American company.
In 2015 CareerBuilder had already acquired a majority stake in Textkernel. “In our nearly 25 years of experience, we’ve learned that recruiters speak one language and candidates speak another. We are building and implementing technologies that close this gap for both sides of our marketplace, and improve every stage of the hiring process,” said Irina Novoselsky, CEO of CareerBuilder. “The acquisition of Textkernel and deeper investment in AI is a part of our overarching strategy to create the most advanced solutions for our customers. And our combined data science, R&D and product development teams are already fast at work to create the next generation technology and tools that bring qualified candidates to jobs faster and easier, even in a tight employment market like the one we’re in now.”
Textkernel is the international leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning and Semantic Technology for matching people and jobs. Textkernel enables thousands of recruitment & staffing agencies, employers, job boards, HR software vendors and outplacement & redeployment agencies worldwide to work smarter and more effectively by creating efficiencies in the HR and recruitment process.
