Another day, another investor is taking interest in the construction-technology space. This time, BirdDog, www.birddoghr.com, Urbandale, Iowa, has announced it received $4 million in series A funding for its SaaS (software-as-a-service) talent-acquisition solution.

Last week, the company announced new funding from Next Level Ventures, www.wecreatehere.net, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which will be used to further BirdDog’s growth in the construction market. More specifically, the funds will be used to scale the company, expand its SaaS offering, and grow the customer base.

This funding announcement follows prior and return investor Bridgepoint Investment Partners, www.bridgepointmb.com, Lincoln, Neb.

BirdDog has a focus on helping recruiting and HR leaders address the challenge of attracting top talent through a system that manages job distribution, applicant tracking, and candidate management. With such technology, contractors are able to improve the process of attracting more qualified applicants.

In addition to the funding partnerships, BirdDog has worked with local AGC, www.agc.org, Arlington, Va., chapters to help the association find candidates and reduce risk associated with recruitment compliance.

While this is just one investment statement, a number of construction-technology providers have announced in recent months new funding from the venture-capital community.
