“The board we’ve assembled says a lot about Paradox’s philosophy on transforming the future of work,” said Gregoire. “It’s not about forcing Talent Acquisition organizations to rip and replace core systems. It’s about integrating seamlessly within the platforms they already use to make them better — whether it’s SAP SuccessFactors, Workday, ADP, Oracle, Cornerstone, ServiceNow, IBM Kenexa, Beamery, HiredScore, or others. Aaron and his team are out to create the simplest, most elegant, mobile-first hiring experiences possible.And we’re thrilled to add Diana, Deepak, and Huggy’s expertise to accelerate that mission.”

Every great hire starts with a conversation.
