Palo Alto – November 16, 2016 – Cooley advised Hired on its acceptance of a second close of its Series C funding, bringing the total for this round to $70 million, and their total funding to more than $100 million. This funding came primarily from limited partners Glenmede Trust and Ontario Pension Board, with additional pro-ratas from existing investors.

Hired plans to use this funding to continue to invest in new technologies, enhance their data science capabilities, and expand into new geographies. Founded in San Francisco in 2012, Hired is a platform that brings together the world’s best knowledge workers and the companies that want to hire them.
