We will look to raise $20M after a year; want to triple customer count by FY14-end: Harishankaran K, co-founder, Interviewstreet
Bangalore- and California-based Interview Street, Inc, which owns and operates technical recruiting platform Interviewstreet.com has already bagged giants such as Google, Facebook and Amazon as its clients. Founded in 2010 by Vivek Ravisankar and Harishankaran K, it was the first Indian startup to be picked for the US-based Y Combinator incubation programme (in 2011). The firm also raised its first investment from Khosla Ventures around one-and-half years ago.
Interviewstreet offers two products â€“ InterviewstreetRecruit, a B2B platform and HackerRank, a B2C offering. With its InterviewstreetRecruit platform, the company is currently serving over 5,000 customers in the US, India, China, Russia, Australia and Germany. It is looking to triple its customer count by the end of current financial year.
In a video interview with Techcircle.in, Harishankaran talks about the company, its customers, fundraising plans and more.
