“We’re delighted to reach this important employee milestone, showing just how quickly Glassdoor is expanding outside of the US,” said John Lamphiere, Glassdoor vice president and managing director of EMEA. “We have ambitious plans for the region and Glassdoor is fast becoming a global company. A rapidly growing number of employers across Europe are using Glassdoor to post jobs, recruit talent and manage their employer brand.
