Leading Provider of Outsourced Talent Acquisition Solutions Partners with Top Vetted Candidate Marketplace Platform

AUSTIN, Texas December 5, 2019 –

BountyJobs, Inc., leading provider of third-party recruiting platform for collaboration between employers and search firms with over $2 billion in placement fees to recruiters and the world’s largest recruiter marketplace, today announced a strategic partnership with silver medalist candidate marketplace, Finalist.

This strategic relationship with Finalist is the latest in the fast growing BountyJobs partner network, seeing 500% growth in 2018 and resulting in the largest partner network of any recruitment marketplace. This network connects innovative technology providers focused on improving the way companies recruit, attract and retain talent. This mix of partners has been hand-selected to help support the key constituents of the 2-sided BountyJobs Marketplace; employers and recruiting agencies. The BountyJobs solution can be integrated within any ATS and values the relationships and expertise that partner agencies bring to the table.

Finalist is a marketplace that connects companies with the top 1% of candidates vetted by similar companies, while improving the candidate experience and generating revenue to help manage the high-costs of recruiting. They’ve done this by creating a network of companies that refer candidates who made it to the final round of an interview process but did not get hired (aka: silver medalists). Data captured from the original interview process along with new information shared by the candidate after opting-in are used to intelligently match the candidate to relevant open positions at companies within the network. When a candidate is hired, the economics (a one-time fee) is split between Finalist and the original referring company.

“The artificial intelligence adopted by Finalist to match silver medalist candidates to roles from other employers is such a powerful and needed tool in this talent landscape,” said Jason Putnam, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development at BountyJobs. “Ensuring top notch, vetted candidates are submitted and ultimately hired via a streamlined approach is core to the BountyJobs process of combining technology with human connection, benefiting all in talent acquisition.”

“At Finalist, we’re excited to be able to work with BountyJobs to bring our platform to recruiters looking for vetted, high-caliber candidates in today’s competitive job market,” said Finalist co-founder Richard Fay.

The new relationship, which marries data-driven hiring solutions and traditional talent acquisition, creates an innovative approach for employers when making critical hires.
