LinkedIn Loves Your Data

February 23rd, 2024

It was another wild week in the world of work. The boys cover a wide range of topics. Here’s a breakdown of some of the highlights:

  • PageUp: U.S. tech investor Battery Ventures is looking to cash out of talent management platform PageUp, which it funded in 2018. Despite efforts to expand globally and through acquisitions, PageUp struggled to gain traction in the U.S. market.
  • HireRight: Investment funds affiliated with General Atlantic and Stone Point Capital are acquiring background check solution HireRight for approximately $1.65 billion. The sale suggests a smart move to sell while the stock is high.
  • Beamery: Beamery’s CTO and co-founder Michael Patterson has exited the company, amid rumors of acquisition by Workday. However, Workday may wait to acquire Beamery at a lower price, as Beamery has faced layoffs and client loss.
  • The Hatch: Australian startup The Hatch has raised approximately $4.6 million to create a job platform targeting Gen Z professionals, aiming to disrupt traditional job boards by using AI to match users with jobs based on their values and skills.

In addition, Chad and Joel discuss various topics related to current events and news, including the National Labor Relations Board’s disputes with Amazon, SpaceX, and Trader Joe’s, LinkedIn’s legal troubles, North Korean hackers using AI for phishing scams, and more. Join us for a lively discussion on labor rights, privacy, and corporate ethics!
