CareerBuilder Acquires Long-Term Partner, VTL, as the HR Leader Continues Focus on Innovation and Customer Experience

CHICAGO – April 23, 2019—A global leader in HR technology, CareerBuilder today announces the acquisition of VTL as part of ongoing focus on enhancing and elevating the customer experience. For more than 10 years, VTL has been developing software and custom application solutions exclusively for CareerBuilder, and its best-in-class technology solutions will continue to be integrated to support customers and job seekers.

VTL has lead the industry with its best-in-class solutions for top-of-the-funnel candidate acquisition. During its partnership with CareerBuilder, the company built vTools to address the needs of clients requesting custom candidate acquisition workflows that off the shelf solutions could not handle, which has since been leveraged by more than 350 companies and generated more than two million applicants.

“Finding the right candidate is paramount, especially for hard to fill roles, and our customers rely on constant innovation and solutions to meet this need,” said Humair Ghauri, CareerBuilder Chief Product Officer. “We’re proud to bring our long-term partners at VTL fully into the CareerBuilder family to help us push the boundaries and continue to find innovative solutions that deliver the best candidates for our customers.”

As part of this acquisition, CareerBuilder will continue to leverage VTL’s propriety software, vTools, as well as its Virtual Open House solutions. VTL CEO and a former CareerBuilder employee, Josh Kahle, has also joined the CareerBuilder team once again to enable a seamless transition and lead the team as they expand the product offerings to meet the evolving needs of today’s businesses.
