BOSTON – APRIL 5, 2017 – Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organizations transform their businesses,today announced its Developer Partner Program and its Open Source Portal to extend the power of its platform, enabling technology partners to create incredible customer experiences by deploying innovative solutions for enterprise staffing firms. The Developer Partner Program and Open Source Portal allow technology partners to leverage Bullhorn’s platform extensibility to facilitate growth and consistency and let developers integrate into Bullhorn through its open application programming interfaces (APIs).

“Architects are using APIs to enable modern user experiences, offer new ways to integrate systems, and open new business channels and business models,” notes Gartner, Inc. in The API Economy: Turning Your Business Into a Platform (or Your Platform Into a Business), Paolo Malinverno, 19 February 2016.

Bullhorn’s Developer Partner Program incubates new technologies and provides additional resources for established companies just entering Bullhorn’s ecosystem, empowering them – regardless of their size or tenure – to build and integrate applications for Bullhorn users leveraging Bullhorn’s open APIs. The program provides essential tools for companies to develop, test, and deploy third-party applications on top of the Bullhorn platform. These resources include a fully functional development instance of Bullhorn, a dedicated developer API key, and access to API support and documentation.

“Bullhorn’s Developer Partner Program provides excellent value to customers and seamlessly capitalizes on innovation and technology,” said Nina Eigerman, Bullhorn’s vice president of alliances and business development. “The program allows companies to scale their businesses even faster with targeted strategies that help them achieve their goals. Companies participating in Bullhorn’s Developer Partner Program can take advantage of Bullhorn’s platform extensibility to create incredible customer experiences for their staffing customers.”

In building applications and integrations to the Bullhorn platform, developers can gain access to a diverse ecosystem of more than 7,000 customers and 50 technology partners, letting them bring solutions to market with direction and confidence. If Bullhorn customers successfully adopt partner solutions, those partners may apply to the Bullhorn Marketplace, providing increased visibility and promotion amongst the entire Bullhorn user base.

The Developer Partner Program currently has a roster of 15 companies, including those with capabilities for artificial intelligence, automated communications, and candidate engagement.

“In today’s fast-paced world, it’s incredibly important – however challenging – to create deeply personalized experiences between recruiters and candidates,” said Pankaj Jindal, co-founder of Sense. “Bullhorn’s Developer Partner Program provides us with the necessary tools and strategy, so we can accelerate our goal of helping staffing firms foster stronger relationships with their candidates, reduce attrition, and increase re-deployment.”

Bullhorn’s Open Source Portal makes it easy for developers to create incredible customer experiences by giving them access to Bullhorn’s user experience and user interface design elements to help transform their integrations into applications that look more native and provide more cohesive user experiences. The Open Source Portal extends the power of the Bullhorn platform to create an ecosystem that addresses recruiters’ lifecycle of needs – well beyond ATSes or CRMs – to easily solve hundreds of specific recruitment process needs and empower both users and developers.
