Urbandale-based BirdDog announced today that it has completed a $4 million Series A round of funding.

 

The financing was led by Des Moines-based venture capital firm Next Level Ventures, which joins prior investor Bridgepoint Investment Partners, also based in Des Moines.

 

BirdDog, founded in 2007, provides recruitment and application tracking software for companies, and has about 700 customers, the company said. Its client base spans all industries, but has an emphasis on construction, engineering and supply companies.

 

BirdDog said it will use the investment to scale the company, expand its product offerings and grow its customer base. President and CEO Todd Skokan said in a news release that BirdDog plans to grow to more than 75 employees over the next three years. It currently employs 27 people.

 

Series A funding is typically defined a company's first round of venture capital funding from an outside investor.
