ApplyBoard currently works with more than 1,200 educational institutions and 4,000 recruitment partners around the world and claims to have directly assisted over 100,000 students.
According to today’s news, ApplyBoard plans to continue growing its team. The startup has been scaling quickly, expanding its team from 180 in May 2019 to around 400 employees now. The company spans 20 countries, with around 300 of those employees working out of the startup’s Kitchener-Waterloo office.
