HeadRace Raises $6M in Seed Funding

HeadRace, an Austin, Texas-based recruiting platform, raised $6M in seed funding.

The round was led by Greylock, Susa Ventures, and Breyer Capital with participation from Packy McCormick, Kindergarten Ventures, and Blue Lion Global.

The company also announced that its technology platform is now available to any recruiter or employer who wants to use it.

Founded by Laszlo Korsos (CEO), Kevin Brinig (COO/CPO), and Amos Barreto (CTO) – three former members of the Marketplace team at Uber, HeadRace is a software company that operates a network for recruiting services. The company makes it easier for employers to find qualified and interested candidates to hire in addition to helping independent recruiters grow their earnings. Employers get access to a network of tenured recruiters via curated recommendations or by posting an opportunity for recruiters to discover and bid on.

Recruiters get access to a technology platform that provides the best opportunities to connect with new customers and earn. Independent recruiters can save on overhead costs like legal and payment processing – supporting everything from retained executive, container, or contingent searches, to even finding new opportunities for amazing final-round candidates.

For the past few months, HeadRace has been in private beta, helping companies place people in a wide range of roles like COO, CMO, Software Engineer, Account Executive and Data Scientist.
