Finch, an application programming interface for employment systems, announced a $15 million series A round led by Menlo Ventures.

Additional participants in the round include Bedrock, General Catalyst, Sempervirens and Y Combinator. Matt Murphy, managing director at Menlo Ventures, joined Finch’s board of directors as part of the deal. In addition, Menlo Ventures partner Croon Beatty and General Catalyst managing director Alex Tran joined the board as observers.

The San Francisco-based software developer will use the funding to become compatible with all employment system providers and to develop additional data models across benefits, equity, time and attendance, and identity, it said in a statement.

Finch said it has generated year-over-year growth of 10x since its launch at the end of 2020.
