CHICAGO, Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Built In today announced it ranked 261 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America now in its 25th year.
Built In grew +400% from 2015 to 2018. The company's CEO and Co-Founder, Maria Christopoulos Katris, says this growth stems from Built In's disruptive business model, which is custom built to meet the needs of the most purpose-driven generation in the workforce ever.
"Having seen that the tech recruitment industry was broken, we revolutionized the way talented people and companies find each other," says Katris. "With a recently launched national site, and local sites in eight tech hubs across the US, our growth is due entirely to the fact that we fill a chasm in the marketplace, serving a need and fueling the future of the workforce in tech. In an era of record-low unemployment, we help employers share their values and culture to an audience of hard-to-hire candidates. More than ever, those candidates have the freedom to choose — and they're choosing to work at companies that share their values."
Adds Katris: "We're so honored to be part of Deloitte's 2019 Technology Fast 500™, and we consider it a privilege to be in the company of so many other fast-growing innovators and disruptors."
