, the creator of the industry's leading conversational AI
recruiter, Mya,
today announced significant customer and team growth. Since its launch
in July of 2016, 120 enterprise companies -- including four of the
largest global recruiting agencies, 15 of the Fortune 100, and 40
of the Fortune 500 -- have selected Mya to transform the job
search and hiring experience for candidates and recruiters. L'Oréal,
Adecco Group, and Sevenstep (a Motion Recruitment company) are among its
customers. The company also recently grew its international footprint,
expanded its employee base 300 percent, and made extensive product and
technological enhancements.

Mya's ability to dramatically accelerate the recruiting process,
increase candidate satisfaction, and improve recruiter productivity has
led U.S. and European companies to rapidly adopt the conversational AI
platform. In response, the company has tripled its team in the U.S.,
added support for major European languages, and opened offices in London
and Munich. The company has named Malik Aibache, former Marketing
Director for PageGroup, as its VP Marketing and Operations EMEA, and
Joachim Fischer as its VP Sales EMEA.

"Our announcement today underscores the great progress we've made toward
our mission to create a more efficient job market powered by AI," said
Eyal Grayevsky, co-founder and CEO of Mya Systems. "Our momentum has
been driven, in large part, by our significant investments in product
and R&D and our commitment to building a world-class leadership team
with repeat track records of scaling successful SaaS businesses."

In the past year, Mya Systems considerably expanded Mya's capabilities
across the end-to-end recruitment life cycle, and added several ATS,
CRM, and calendar partnerships and integrations to the platform. In
keeping with its commitment to meeting the highest standards for
customer privacy and security in both the U.S. and Europe, it achieved
SOC2 and GDPR compliance. And, as part of its ongoing global expansion,
the company now offers conversational AI in French, Spanish, and German.
