Rekruta helps companies plan and track their hiring process with its online dashboard, from putting out job ads to conducting interviews to making offers, and allows hiring managers and recruiters to collaborate in real-time. Companies can also use Rekruta’s interview kit that will give interviewers a better understanding of the sort of questions they should ask to find the right hire.
Founded in December 2015, the company intends to use the funds to enhance the SaaS product and increase headcount.
Led by two co-founders Silvia Pratama (CEO) and Yanuar Wibisono (CTO), the company claims to have signed on a number of clients, including Kudo, a Jakarta-based e-commerce company.
“Considering that there are more than 44,000 medium to big enterprises in Indonesia, the potential and opportunities for Indonesia’s HR SaaS market are tremendous. HR is already a billion-dollar industry globally, with room for growth,” said Pratama in an interaction with Tech in Asia.
She added that the company expects to add over 100 medium to big companies as paying clients, and declined to disclose usage fees.
Willson Cuaca, the managing partner of East Ventures, also said that the investment firm sees promise in the way Rekruta is solving a problem in the recruitment sector. “Rekruta is helping companies from the demand side when it comes to managing human resource problems,” he said.
East Ventures also invested in Talenta, another Jakarta-based HR SaaS company that tackles attendance, employee database and payroll management issues.
