SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZipRecruiter, the job and employee onboarding platform for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced entrepreneur Brian Lee has joined its board of directors. A serial entrepreneur, Lee co-founded The Honest Company and founded ShoeDazzle after co-founding LegalZoom in 2000. Each of his companies has grown to more than $100 million in revenue thanks in part to Lee’s abilities to identify critical market voids and guide companies forward as they mature.
Lee’s appointment comes as ZipRecruiter moves past 100,000 customers and more than 100 job-listing partners. Today, the company’s database collects more than 6 million resumes each month and sends more than 26 million personalized job alert emails every day. In 2015, 5.8 million job-seekers have used ZipRecruiter to identify and support career opportunities and changes, a 25 percent increase from 2014, signaling market demand for more personalized guidance throughout the hiring lifecycle.
“Running businesses of all sizes and stages, I’ve seen the challenges companies face in trying to identify, attract and retain talent,” Lee said. “ZipRecruiter’s data-driven approach to matching the right employer with the most qualified job-seeker helps reduce the time, resources and frustrations expended during the hiring process, and the company is well positioned to extend its offerings to serve both employers and job seekers.”
Before beginning his career as an entrepreneur, Lee was an attorney. He is currently a board member at the Lowell Milken Institute of Business Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law, and he is also pursuing philanthropic endeavors in Los Angeles. Lee graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in economics and business from UCLA and received his Juris Doctor from UCLA School of Law.
