Birchmere Ventures led a $2.1 million Series B round last month for The Resumator, a next-generation hiring platform. Rincon Venture Partners, Innovation Works and ff Venture Capital also participated in the round, the company said.

The Resumator, a next-generation hiring platform, announces the completion of its Series B financing totaling $2.1 million. The new round was led by Birchmere Ventures, Series A lead investor Rincon Venture Partners, and cloud computing leader Innovation Works and ff Venture Capital also participated in the round.

The Resumator is quickly becoming the best solution of fast growing organizations like both 2012 U.S. presidential campaigns and industry leaders like Pinterest, Mashable, Klout, MailChimp, HootSuite, Atari, Instagram and Tumblr.

The Resumator’s integrated social media features and recruiting tools make finding, sorting and reviewing applicants easy. Skills tests and applicant tracking software allow employers to analyze applicants before and after they are interviewed. The collaborative interface makes the process more engaging and transparent for every person involved. Most importantly, The Resumator is by far the easiest hiring platform to use and understand. Even for users with no past hiring experience, The Resumator makes hiring simple.

“We’re helping the great people of today create the great companies of tomorrow. The Resumator gives small and medium sized business owners a voice to hire talent,” said Don Charlton, CEO and Founder of The Resumator. “We build products that enhance the relationships between job seekers, employers, and employees. Our significant growth and customer base is proof that we have a fundamentally different approach to how companies use software to recruit. This approach is less about automation and more about helping people collaborate.”

Sean Ammirati, Partner at Birchmere Ventures, will join The Resumator’s board. “I was impressed how The Resumator has fast become the leading hiring platform for small to medium sized businesses in just three years,” said Ammirati. “The Resumator has proven that it adds immediate value to growing organizations and is seeing strong demand in 2012. I’m excited to be part of the opportunity to build on this success in 2013.”

The Resumator stands as one of the most innovative recruiting solutions for progressive, fast growing businesses. “The Resumator continues to win business from legacy solutions as some of the highest profile, fastest growing companies in the world are adopting its unique solution,” said John Greathouse, General Partner, Rincon Venture Partners. “This investment is further validation that The Resumator offers a competitive advantage to its customers, allowing them to quickly and efficiently hire the right people, for the right jobs, at the right time.”

The company will use the new funding to accelerate product innovation, expand its leadership team, increase customer acquisition and secure strategic partnerships.
