SmartRecruiters Expands Its Leadership Team with Former Jobvite Executive Rebecca Meissner

New Senior Director of Accounts, Pro Services to Lead Renewal, Retention and Activation Services for Enterprise Customers

San Francisco – September 15, 2014 – SmartRecruiters, the company that empowers the new way of hiring, today announced that Rebecca Meissner, former Director of Accounts at Jobvite, joined the company as Senior Director, Account Management and Pro Services. She will lead the company’s enterprise accounts team to increase product responsiveness and meet the needs of today’s recruiters and HR managers to advance the new way of hiring.

Meissner brings more than a decade of product management and recruiting experience for startups and enterprise companies. Most recently, she spent two years at Jobvite as Director of Strategic Accounts. Meissner’s responsibilities included managing domestic and international customers, leading enterprise renewals and driving user engagement. Prior to Jobvite, Meissner held positions at Playdom and BranchOut, one of the world’s largest professional networks. An evangelist of hiring technology, Meissner is also as an advisor to FamilyLeaf and 500Startups.

“Rebecca’s hands-on experience as a recruiter provides us with an unparalleled connection to the needs and motivations of today’s hiring teams,” said Jerome Ternynck, CEO of SmartRecruiters. “Her understanding of our customers and ability to generate actionable feedback will help us provide an innovative product that hiring professionals can depend on. We look forward to the contributions Rebecca will make to advance our mission to grow our enterprise business and revolutionize hiring.”

Since its founding in 2010, SmartRecruiters has enabled 70,000 businesses across a multitude of sectors—including retail, tech and healthcare—to reduce their time to hire by 75 percent and cost to hire by 70 percent, while increasing applicant volume by 250 percent.

“Today’s hiring market suffers from a dearth of recruiting and hiring solutions that embrace the needs of businesses and candidates,” said Meissner. “In my experience, the SmartRecruiters platform excels at enabling enterprises to quickly find the best candidates, far beyond what its competitors and traditional ATS systems can provide. In particular, the platform shines with its mobile integration and hiring team engagement capabilities. I look forward to helping SmartRecruiters redefine customer interaction as the company grows, and joining the front lines of the next era of hiring.”
