Just a few weeks after raising BRL 500 million ($96 million US) in an investment round led by SoftBank, Brazilian-based ATS Gupy bought its former rival, Kenoby, for an undisclosed amount.
Gupy, which had raised the biggest investment in recruitment in Latin America, said on a LinkedIn post the acquisition of Kenoby “consolidates” its leadership in the digital recruitment business in Brazil.
Gupy gained traction and surpassed long-established ATS Vagas.com.br in terms of trafic. Vagas used to lead the ATS business in terms of traffic in Brazil. Vagas.com.br, which operates as an ATS business, also has a jobs board.
Both Kenoby and Gupy transformed recruitment in Brazil, Gupy said.
Together, both companies help companies hire over 1.2 million candidates in over 2,300 companies.
