CareerBuilder Expands Into Post-Hire Software with the Acquisition of WORKTERRA

September 6, 2016 Anthony Balderrama

Here at CareerBuilder, we’ve never shied away from change. Over the last few years we’ve evolved from a job board to a global HR SaaS organization, and today we’re taking another important step: We’ve acquired WORKTERRA, a leader in cloud-based benefits administration and talent management.

What does this mean for you?

While you’ve been able to rely on us for your talent acquisition and pre-hire needs, you can now look to us for your post-hire solutions, too. Last year we introduced Applicant Tracking, a pre-hire platform that lets you post to 7,000 job sites and social media outlets, access 100 million candidate profiles, build optimized career suits, manage recruitment workflow and more. It allows you to manage the entire pre-hire experience from one interface. With WORKTERRA, we’ll be able to help you complete the entire candidate experience, from sourcing to employment.


WORKTERRA’s solutions help employers manage the employee lifecycle, including onboarding, benefits administration, wellness and compliance. These solutions are within a single configurable system that requires one login. WORKTERRA was founded 10 years ago, and today its system houses more than 600,000 employees.

“This acquisition is a defining moment because it enables us to step beyond recruitment and become an end-to-end human capital management firm,” says Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “Working together, we will bring an unprecedented scope of innovation to market that will solve critical issues clients face in hiring, developing and managing employees.”

“We’re excited to become part of a company that is known for having a strong brand and superb technology and customer service,” says David Rhodes, CEO of WORKTERRA. “WORKTERRA’s and CareerBuilder’s solutions will perfectly complement one another and bring more options, efficiencies and value to our clients for both the pre-hire and post-hire side of business.”

In the coming weeks we’ll have more updates on what you can expect from CareerBuilder and WORKTERRA and how it can simplify your talent acquisition and HR efforts.
