The exciting times at Yello continue today as we announce the closing of a $5M Series B Round led by Argentum. It was great to have our friends at First Analysis participate as well. We are happy to welcome Walter Barandiaran and the Argentum Group to the family and appreciate the continued vote of confidence from Corey Greendale and Jim Macdonald of First Analysis!

There are a number of outlets covering the news including Crains, Thomson Reuters, Built In Chicago and ChicagoInno.

While I continue to be extremely proud of our team, I am absolutely thrilled for our clients. The additional funding will primarily be focused on recruiting strong team members to a few areas:


– Additional features into our professional and campus recruiting platform used by many of the top employers globally
– Several new products that are of great interest internally
– Enhancements to our award-winning mobile recruiting apps

Success Team

One of the keys to Yello’s growth has been our incredible client success group. To provide the same “white glove” service in our implementation, support and consulting, we are expanding this team dramatically. This includes placing team members outside of Chicago and closer to our expanding global customer base.

Sales and Marketing

With exponentially increasing demand for Yello software, we have added more experienced HR Tech veterans to our roster. They will help expedite the sales process to get new customers up and running sooner.
