    Cloud-based interview platform provider HireVue today announced that it has completed a $22m financing round, which includes a $17m Series C equity round led by Investor Growth Capital and an expansion of the firm’s debt facility.

    The news comes on the heels of the company’s acquisition of i/o ventures-backed programmer screening and recruitment service CodeEval.

    Other investors participating in the equity round include prior backers Granite Ventures and Peterson Ventures, and new investors Rose Park Advisors and law firm Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich and Rosati.

    The company had previously secured $6 million in financing.

    HireVue’s mission is to modernize the job candidate screening and interviewing process, offering an on-demand platform that basically lets qualified candidates simply respond to interview questions at their own convenience from a computer, tablet or smartphone.

    Employers can then, in turn, watch interview responses anytime, anywhere.

    HireVue currently employs more than 60 people and provides its services to more than 300 companies, including big ones like Walmart, Nike, Starbucks, Nestle, Dunkin Donuts and eBay.
