Both Broadbean and PandoLogic hold leadership positions in the rapidly evolving talent acquisition market, which is valued at $36.1 billion globally as of 2022, according to Staffing Industry Analysts.

The combination of our companies will extend the reach of leading AI technology and HR SaaS solutions globally to the world's largest multinational employers that require more efficient and scalable human resource and hiring solutions.
"We believe the added financial scale and leverage, and product expansion into over 100 ATS partners, will enable us to accelerate further adoption and utilization of our AI via PandoLogic's programmatic technology," added Steelberg. "Both companies have been leaders in the HR and talent acquisition markets, including Broadbean's global footprint with over 3,000 customers. We are excited about the prospects, and welcome Broadbean's talented team to Veritone."
"With our shared vision for technological HR-enabled solutions and strong cultural alignment, we are looking forward to becoming a part of the Veritone family," said Alex Fourlis, President, Broadbean, who will step into a new senior leadership role with the combined company after the transaction closes. "We believe that Veritone's AI capabilities and our combined portfolio will help unlock value in Broadbean's performance data, client and partner ecosystem."
