Fountain Adds Multi-Cloud, SSO Tools to Hiring Platform

Data Connection

High-volume hiring platform Fountain launched multi-cloud and single sign-on capabilities for any app in an enterprise’s talent acquisition stack.

The company said single sign-on will streamline the user experience and boost productivity, while multi-cloud features allow more flexibility in setting up redundancy and choosing providers.

Both features will add security and agility to an employer’s virtual cloud infrastructure, Fountain believes.

SSO and multi-cloud allow Fountain to help safeguard its customers’ data, said CEO Sean Behr. In turn, that “[empowers] enterprise IT and security professionals with the flexibility to meet a number of business needs for application and infrastructure development and management,” he said.  

Behr joined Fountain from Stratim, a mobility and fleet infrastructure platform that he founded.

In 2019, Fountain closed $23 million in Series B funding in a round led by venture firm DCM. At the time, Fountain planned to use the funds to accelerate product development and expand its reach across the restaurant and hospitality industry.

Founded in 2015, Fountain was designed to handle high-volume, quick-turn-around and high-turnover recruiting for food-beverage, hospitality and on-demand services firms. Among its customers are Safeway, Lime, Wag, and a number of Taco Bell franchisees. The company says more than 1 million people apply for around 150,000 jobs on its platform each month.

This past October, the company announced features designed to better attract and engage applicants as more companies rely on remote recruiting and hiring. The features included live and on-demand video interviews, a universal talent view, a recruiting chatbot, branded career sites, advanced resume parsing and geolocation.
