In November 2018 The Muse increased its customer base of influential employers, expanded its technology platform through its acquisition of HR tech company TalentShare, and opened a new office in San Francisco. This rapid company momentum speaks to significant market opportunity and demand for The Muse’s expertise in attracting the next generation of talent. The acquisition will help companies understand how effective their employer brand is at attracting the right talent for their business through deeper integrations between The Muse platform and applicant tracking systems (ATS).
TalentShare’s technology will bolster The Muse’s existing product offering to help employers communicate their individual values, culture, and employee experiences to candidates, measuring impact both before they apply and during the interview process. The full TalentShare engineering team will be joining The Muse, headquartered in New York, and will continue to be based out of San Francisco.
In 2017, The Muse acquired Brand Amper, a three-year-old Chicago-based startup whose tools enable companies to collect data like employee sentiment by inviting employees to tell stories.
