Fountain uses advanced data tracking and analytics to launch targeted hiring campaigns. Their geolocation radius feature also restricts job postings to a specified area.
Fountain, previously known as OnboardIQ, is a data-driven hiring platform that is built for speed and scale. They rebranded five years ago but their goal has always been the same — to help managers hire smarter and better with data-backed processes.
Their analytics-based approach helps you make informed decisions when sourcing, qualifying, and hiring at scale. All of these capabilities and more inspired the senior manager of one consumer goods and food delivery company to make this remark about the software — “coming from (our previous ATS) to Fountain was like going from a bicycle to a Tesla.”
Having done our own research and testing, this claim is not far-fetched as Fountain offers some inventive features that make your process more purpose-driven. While reviewing the software, we found that a lot of the platform’s features connect to an analytics backend that tells you what is going on in a particular aspect of your hiring process.
For example, the customizable career’s page they offer tracks traffic on the website and provides useful information to guide your hiring. This reporting functionality is one of the things that make this software stand out from the rest.
Fountain provides integration options with a host of popular HR tools that you’re probably already using such as ADP and Rippling. This is particularly impressive as the majority of tools in this space don’t offer a lot of HR and people management integrations. All of the above and more explain why Fountain is a go-to tech vendor for many companies across the industries of healthcare, logistics, professional services, hospitality, manufacturing, and retail.
Though the system has all the bells and whistles of a large-scale ATS, it is not the best software for recruiting agencies or companies that are looking to hire white-collar candidates. It was specifically designed for the blue-collar workforce.

Fountain, originally OnboardIQ, was founded in 2014. At the time, it was just a system that helped streamline job candidate interviews. It later rebranded in 2017 as a hiring automation software for fast, high-volume recruiting.
Fountain is backed by over $200 million in venture capital. In their recent Series C funding round, they raised $100 million, which will go into expanding the ATS and adding new features. Their platform is trusted by hundreds of companies and they hire millions of employees in 78 countries.
