Who is Lever Competing with?

The ATS space is currently very competitive, with several similarly sized companies looking to capture the market. While the more established companies have taken a huge chunk of the available customers, the growth of small and mid-sized companies has opened up an agile new customer base to start-ups like Lever.

Two of the most well-known and widely used technologies in this sector are Taleo and iCIMS. Slintel has information of over 4,500 clients each for both of these companies, a list consisting of multiple Fortune 500 companies and billion-dollar brands. We also have data on more than 1,400 user of SAP Successfactors, another market leader in this segment.

The Lever target audience looks to be more along the range of mid-sized companies. Our data shows that most of the companies in the Lever portfolio fall under the 1 billion valuation mark.

This is where it is in competition with the likes of Bamboo HR, Workable and Jazz HR, all of who offer ATS products with functionality and pricing comparable to that of Lever. We have information on more than 2,800 customers for each of these three companies. Slintel also has the list of customers using Applicant Pro and Greenhouse, with our data showing more than 1,600 clients for each.

Slintel makes it much easier to breakdown how the competition in the sector is panning out. As we have information on adoption, renewals and customer movements, we can paint a clearer picture about movements in the market, gains and losses. Our data shows that the top companies that are losing clients to Lever are Workable, Breezy HR, Jobvite, Taleo, Recruiterbox and Greenhouse. However, our info also shows that more than 22% of the companies who are leaving Lever are switching to Greenhouse, which suggests a close competition between the two.
