About Beamery

Beamery is the leading Enterprise SaaS start-up focused on transforming the way companies hire and candidates find the best careers. Talent management is undergoing unprecedented transformation with issues ranging from globalisation to diversity issues to the pandemic impact on the workplace and have become top strategic priorities for large enterprises. Beamery has led the market in helping our clients meet these challenges and have recently closed a $138M C-round of funding to further drive this growth. 

We combine tools for every stage of the talent acquisition process, enabling companies to manage the entire candidate lifecycle on one unified platform to deliver better talent acquisition at scale. Core to this offering is Talent Data Platform that drives the AI we use to deliver delightful user experiences.
