Conversation with Leela Srinivasan, CMO of Lever


Lever is part of a new crop of applicant tracking systems that are really turning heads and making the hiring process better for companies & candidates. Fresh off a new $30 million dollar Series C round of funding, I invited their CMO, Leela Srinivasan to RecTech.

  1. You have a quite a career path...I didn’t realize you used to work at LinkedIn...what was that like and what did you learn there about selling and marketing to HR people?

  2. How big a team is Lever right now…? How did you get the job?

  3. Why is Lever different?

  4. As you pitch Lever today what are the main challenges in selling to HR?
