$2.5 Billion, that’s the predicted valuation of Pinterest Inc. as it secures financing for its future growth. That’s 8 zeros!
All that financing means the free website, which lets members “pin” their likes to online boards, needs to find revenue. The Wall Street Journal claims that many industry insiders expect revenue to come from different advertising schemes, corporate sponsors, and relationships with business retailers. That sounds like a lot of headaches to us (headaches we’d like to have).
But come on, the website only hit the ground running in 2010. Barely 2 years old and now we talk about how they’re worth $2,500,000,000 with more than 48 million user visits last December alone. They only had 8 million visits last December!
Apparently, Pinterest decided to shove slow and steady where the sun don’t shine and sprint towards the top of the Internet. The young founders certainly didn’t do it alone though. They added around 80 employees over the last year alone! Imagine those growing pains the next time you need to fill a spot.
It makes us wonder how a company grows that quickly. Oh, that’s right, we know already. They use The Resumator.
Think of the scale. Think of the time frame. Think of the crazed hiring manager trying to fill more shoes than he or she can count. It all sounds like too much, too much to do alone, that is.
We don’t want to sound too full ourselves, but come on. Two presidential candidates, one president, thousands of small and medium business users, a $2 Billion website, and a laundry list of super impressive companies use our Applicant Tracking Software. Not bad, huh?
All boasting aside, not many companies can claim to serve small, medium and billion-dollar business like The Resumator. That means a lot to us. Great companies need great people and we love filling the void between them.
