acquires blockchain startup Talenting

February 04, 2021

Online recruitment platform acquired blockchain startup Talenting, which allows data on jobs, résumés and credentials to be stored in an immutable ledger.

“Blockchain has always been a part of the vision and adding Talenting to our roster will greatly expand our abilities from end-to-end,” said Arran Steward, co-founder and chief visionary officer.

Talenting was founded in 2018 by Bill Inman, Dan Austin, Vinay Kumar, Sal Pazhoor and Shankar Ramalingam. They aimed to create a platform where workers have more control over their employment data.

The deal is complete and will integrate Talenting’s features into its platform over the coming months.
