KeldairHR | Advanced Hiring Solutions

About KeldairHR

KeldairHR is an HR Technology company providing Applicant Tracking Systems.

We believe there is too much friction on all sides of the hiring equation and one way to remove it is through modern, intelligent technology. But there’s more than just slick technology needed to make recruiting and hiring better – the secret sauce is the human experience blending into the tech.

We have helped thousands of companies recruit and hire for all of their open jobs. And throughout that time, we are always trying to listen – to our customers, our prospects and the technology.

After reviewing thousands of client interactions, demos and discussions with prospects, we decided to go all-in and position our products to provide value over the long haul. Yes, this meant building it all over, from scratch.

  • Every line line of code? New.
  • Every feature? Deconstructed and reevaluated.
  • Workflows, User Experience, System infrastructure? Flexible, reimagined, rebuilt.

Heck, we even gave ourselves a new name!

As we launch our newest platform, we couldn’t be more excited to help our customers hire the right people, for the right roles, at the right time. Hiring isn’t an afterthought. We don’t think your ATS should be either.

Our Timeline

In 2007, after having spent years manually reviewing resumes in his HR job with a Fortune 100 company, John Guzak had an idea (note: John has lots of ideas; but this one stuck). He wanted to build a technology solution to help companies recruit and hire more efficiently.

John discussed this concept with his long time friend, Brian Clark (already an entrepreneur), and they decided to go for it. They started building prototypes. After months of talking daily with Brian and John about the product, the roadmap, go to market strategies, and more, Pat Clark joined the company as well.

Here is a snapshot of some of the major events in our history:

  • 2007

    We’re Officially Founded!

    Jordan Gilmore, Inc. is formally established with a tagline of “Software Powertools for Business”. At this point, our software demos were good looking slide decks.

  • 2008

    And we’re live!

    Our first paying client came onboard in 2008. At this point, we are selling “v1” of the product. As you will see, we were never all that creative about naming iterations…

  • 2010

    Building and growing

    Once we had a few clients using the system, we built, and launched, v2 in 2010. The foundation of v2 lays the groundwork for several years of growth.

  • 2011

    Jordan Gilmore becomes Hyrell

    A growing HR company needed an appropriate name that didn’t sound like an accounting office.

  • 2011

    Franchise Division

    We found that the franchise market was being largely overlooked from a hiring software perspective so we built a division, and a product, to focus exclusively on it.

  • 2013


    As our customer base grew, so too did our technical infrastructure needs. In 2013, we launched the next version (yes, you guessed it, “v3”) using a modern Software as a Service model.

  • 2018

    Franchise Spin-off

    In mapping out our future, we decided that both our core business and franchises would be best served by clearly segmenting them. We spun off the franchise division and it continues to operate as Hyrell.

  • 2019

    New Platform, New Name

    The new platform is finally ready (yep, “v4”) and is launched under our new brand name, KeldairHR. We re-thought and re-built everything. And it’s ready to serve our customers for years to come.
