Hiree, an online hiring platform focused on helping job seekers find better jobs faster, recently announced a new freemium in order to further accelerate its growth.
Acquired by QuikrJobs in July 2016 to strengthen its offerings in the white-collar job market, Hiree continues to disrupt online hiring with an alternative to the age-old subscription-based recruitment model predominantly used by the industry.
The online job search platform will continue to provide all services free of cost to job seekers. This new business is however aimed at bringing added benefits to recruiters who will be able to post jobs and also access hundreds of candidate profiles for free.
Additional candidate details and access to a large number of applications are subsequently available on a subscription basis.
Speaking about the decision to offer Freemium services, Manjunath Talwar, vice president at QuikrJobs and co-founder at Hiree said, “Online hiring platforms have typically followed a premium subscription for employers. The way we see it, breaking away from the traditional route will bring more jobs online and that will come full circle to also create a larger online talent pool.”

Amit Jain, Head of QuikrJobs said, “Online classifieds have always been freemium and Quikr’s success is testament to its benefits. QuikrJobs has also followed a similar strategy and it has made us the leader in blue collar hiring. Bringing the freemium to white collar hiring will be a game-changer and we believe it will be a winning strategy for Hiree too.”
Hiree which has world’s largest IT companies and India’s highest valued start-ups in its customer list has a differentiated product development. It offers benefits like smart matching algorithms, real-time alerts and a unique private messaging system.
Its Android App for recruiters allows them to connect with candidates through call, WhatsApp, SMS, e-mail and schedule meetings in real-time for future discussion. The core technology of Hiree is built in a way to get most active candidates within search results improving hiring efficiencies.
While Hiree focuses on white collar segment, QuikrJobs is a platform offering different solutions for Blue Collar, Grey Collar and White Collar jobs across India.
