About the company

Pandora Media Inc. is a consumeroriented music discovery service headquartered in Oakland, California. In 2015, the company made several acquisitions including Rdio and Ticketfly. In 2016, the company had revenue of $1.38billion and over 2,200 employees.

Pandora began working with Starcircle in 2013 soon after their IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. At the time, the company had several hundred employees and was preparing for a period of rapid growth.

The engagement

Pandora partnered with Starcircle through a 100 day pilot, during which time Starcircle showed value by:

Reducing the amount of time that Pandora’s recruiters spend on manual search, thus increasing the number of candidate connects and improving engagement.

Increasing the company’s knowledge of the talent pool by building a thorough database including both passive and active candidates, also providing multiple insights on the talent pool such as diversity, seniority, skills and matching level.

After the 100 day pilot, Pandora increased their engagement with Starcircle and still remains a top customer three years later. Over this time, the Starcircle engagement has evolved to support a broader range of activity with greater strategic value.
