Google has reportedly announced that it would end Google Hire services with effect from September 2020. Through Google Hire, the tech giant offered small and medium enterprises a platform for seamless recruitment of candidates.
Using the platform, enterprises can list job vacancies, track applications, schedule interviews, and hire the right candidates. It provides an end to end solution for recruitments.
Google launched its hiring service in July 2017 that uses Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Sheets, and Google Hangout that enables its clients to simplify the recruitment process.
The service boasts a long list of clients including Cloudera, Dandelion Chocolate, Prosperworks, and SADA Systems. The company cited in a post that the decision was made to focus more on other products in the Google Cloud Portfolio.
“While Hire has been successful, we’re focusing our resources on other products in the Google Cloud portfolio,” the global search engine platform stated in its post.
Google Hire was rolled out with a subscription model that requires its users to pay $200 to $400 per month depending on the number of G Suite licenses the company needs.
Google Hire saw light through the acquisition of Bebop by Google for $380 million in 2015. As part of the acquisition, the company’s founder Diane Greene joined Google, who went on to lead Google’s Cloud Division as its CEO.
Greene, who also founded the public traded software company VMWare decided to exit from Google at the start of this year.
Google rolled out emails to all its clients to inform about the closure of its hiring service. The tech giant thanked its customers for making Google Hire a huge success.
This won't come as the first time that Google has chosen to end one of its services. It shut down its Trips app and replaced it with a mediocre website that it didn't justify the closure of the app. It also removed its alternative Gmail Inbox-viewing feature.
One good thing that spans out of this news is that its clients won't be charged anymore and they can continue using the services till September 2020. Google also won't penalize its clients if they choose to end the contract.
