PCRecruiter is developed by Main Sequence Technology, which was founded 1998. The company is profitable and has never taken venture capital, so is fully owned by the founders. In 2014 the company partnered with Scout for better matching based on profile data, and with Fee Catcher which helps recruiters audit hires to ensure they do not miss any fees due.
