The Bullhorn Story

Bullhorn is an international recruitment software company, delivering best-of-breed technology solutions for the world’s leading recruitment firms. Founded in 1999, Bullhorn pioneered the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model for staffing and recruiting software, as well as innovations in mobile, candidate search, open API access, social recruiting, back office time and expense, onboarding, and VMS-ATS integration. Headquartered in Boston, with offices in St. Louis, Vancouver, London and Sydney, Bullhorn provides recruitment CRM, back office, VMS integration, and social recruiting products that serve more than 10,000 clients representing nearly 350,000 users across 150 countries.

Originally launched as an online marketplace, Bullhorn was used by creative types such as designers, artists, and copywriters to search for contract work. After speaking with a friend, Founder and CEO Art Papas discovered that the system closely mapped to a staffing agency’s typical relationship management workflow, so he began pitching it to recruiters. Shortly thereafter, Papas, coding the software himself, interviewed recruiters and built in the CRM functionality that they wanted. Ever since, Bullhorn’s founders have been focused on delivering dynamic and secure recruiting solutions built in collaboration with agile development and user-centered design.

With an entrepreneurial approach and great passion for the customers we serve, Bullhorn has been leading the staffing software industry for over a decade. Committed to being a leader in all that we do, Bullhorn partners with several non-profit organizations and participates in several different community service events throughout the year.

Bullhorn’s commitment to innovation-driven design and development has been at the forefront of its products and service offerings since inception. This philosophy and strategy has been a constant driver throughout the life of the company and will continue to be a competitive force moving forward. As a company, we understand the market and exactly what our customers need to maximize recruiter performance and boost top-line growth. We know that putting the best tools in front of a team of recruiters is crucial to its success, and that is exactly why Bullhorn is dedicated to cultivating a strong innovation pipeline.
