The Bullhorn Story

Bullhorn provides cloud-based CRM solutions for relationship-driven businesses. Its automated data capture and customer insight technology helps companies win customers and keep them engaged. Today, more than 7,000 companies rely on the Bullhorn platform to help increase sales, improve service delivery, and streamline operations. Headquartered in Boston, with offices around the world, Bullhorn employs over 600 people globally. The company is founder-led and backed by Vista Equity Partners.

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 leadership team has been focused on delivering dynamic and secure solutions for service-based industries 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 with a variety of product offerings and its cloud-based CRM is now used by relationship-driven businesses of all kinds. 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 performance and boost top-line growth. We know that putting the best tools in front of a team of professionals is crucial to its success, and that is exactly why Bullhorn is dedicated to cultivating a strong innovation pipeline.

Work/Life Balance

Bullhorn employees have one thing in common – we are obsessed with being the best. We care deeply about our customers and the work they do, and we care about each other. We like our people the way we like our software: agile, reliable, innovative, intelligent, and fun. We strive to create a supportive atmosphere that meshes the very best parts of startup culture – the fast pace, driven talent, rapid iteration, and career growth – with the most refreshing parts of being at a tenured company – work/life balance, stability, competitive pay and benefits, and the resources to never have to slow down or be timid.

A Community Built by Teamwork


Bullhorn prides itself on having a company culture that encourages career development, innovation, teamwork, and fun. Bullhorn allots time each quarter for all employees to volunteer at various organizations in the Boston area, and we make it well worth it!

Bullhorn donates almost $1 million per year in cash donations and employee volunteer time to a variety of organizations, including the Germantown Neighborhood Center, The Italian Home for Children, DSS, Raise a Reader, and Youth Village’s Holiday Hero program.

As a company, we volunteer at more than 15 events per year and work with organizations including Rosie’s Place, Rebuilding Together Boston, and Youth Villages. Bullhorn Cares partners with Career Collaborative, a not-for-profit organization that helps low-income adults find and keep jobs with career potential. Since the beginning of our partnership, in 2011, Bullhorn has worked with Career Collaborative to help 74 individuals secure new careers in the Boston area. Bullhorn was recently recognized with a Silver Impact Award from Building Impact for its commitment to volunteerism. CEO Art Papas was also recognized with a 2015 Alumni Impact award from BostInno.
