“We delivered a strong performance in our first full quarter as a Nasdaq-listed company, exceeding our 25% Sequential quarter-over-quarter growth targets with 43% sequential revenue growth in the third quarter,” said Evan Sohn, CEO of “We believe our continued focus on the organic growth of our technology-led recruiting solutions will scale with the positive margin economics necessary to lead us to profitability. In the first nine months of the year, our revenues grew 124% over the prior year, driven primarily by a dramatic increase in our on-demand recruiting solutions, the transformation of our business with subscription-based software, and key technology acquisitions that rounded out our product offerings. We believe we have great momentum as we head into the end of 2021, and we do not anticipate needing to either raise additional capital or acquire other businesses this year to continue this powerful trajectory.”

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Revenue increased 43% from the second quarter of 2021 to $6.3 million; third-quarter revenue increased 314% over the third quarter of 2020. This increase was driven primarily by an increase in the Company’s Recruiter on Demand business and the introduction of Software Subscriptions.
  • Gross margins improved to 36.8% in the third quarter, up from 32.8% in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in gross margins reflects the shift in the Company’s sales mix to higher growth, higher margin operations.
  • Total stockholders’ equity increased to $18.6 million in the third quarter up from a stockholders’ deficit of $6.5 million at the end of the second quarter of 2021, reflecting primarily changes from the uplist offering.

Key Highlights: Q3 2021

  • Strengthened balance sheet with the closing of an upsized $12 Million Public Offering and Nasdaq listing and an additional $1.8 Million closing of underwriters' exercise of over-allotment options, both of which are listed before deducting fees and underwriting expenses.
  • Launched Amplify, an AI-powered solution for proactive candidate outreach, leveraging our AI software to search and market passive candidates, transforming job posting into an active talent identification and engagement process.
  • Improved the scoring engine of our AI software to find less obvious matches by creating custom machine learning models to examine companies and candidate profiles, analyzing millions of data points per search.

“Compared to the second quarter of 2021, our highest margin segments, software subscriptions, and marketplace solutions grew 165% and 360%, respectively, while our largest revenue segment saw strong demand with Recruiters on Demand growing by over 91%,” said Miles Jennings, President, and COO of “This strong performance is expected to continue as we benefit from a series of supportive macro trends that provide significant tailwinds, including the continued reopening of the economy, the “Great Resignation,” a growing “job hopper” economy, and an overall growing demand for recruiters.”

“With a high backlog of demand, we have an incredible opportunity to scale operations, replicate our successes, and cross-sell customers as we concurrently increase our focus on driving new efficiencies across our organization,” added Sohn. “I believe we are now on a clear path to profitability in the near-term. We look forward to continuing our strong trajectory of organic revenue growth as macro conditions continue to improve and as more employers learn of our successful client outcomes. The foundation we have laid positions as the go-to solution for solving dynamic and complex recruiting and hiring challenges. We look forward to growing into our incredible brand and unlocking its potential as a leader in a $120 Billion market.”
