About us

Vincere: /ˈvintʃere/ Verb (transitive, intransitive)
From Latin, Vincere means to win, conquer.

We get you, your pain points and your business.

Before Vincere, our founder Bernie Schiemer, ran a recruitment business for 16 years (before it was sold to a global firm in a landmark acquisition). He had first-hand experience in using several of the well-known CRM/ATS platforms on the market, but was constantly frustrated by their high cost, awkward design and lack of support. He was looking for something more than just a database, he wanted a system of revenue. So in 2011, Vincere was born.

We’re not just a bunch of developers…we understand your pain points and your business. Vincere is designed specifically for ambitious recruitment business owners and recruiters looking for a tech partner that will accelerate their growth.

Today, Vincere counts some of the industry’s biggest names as happy customers- including Randstad, Intelligence, plus hundreds of small to mid-sized, growing recruitment firms across the globe.

We are different

We’re the industry’s biggest disruptor for one simple reason: we’re always ahead of the curve.

When the first version of Vincere was released, we introduced the Pipeline: our signature chevron process flow. That was back in 2011…but if you look at CRMs today (think Salesforce), everyone is reinventing the system and shifting towards the same pipeline-driven workflow.

We are also the only recruitment software that focuses on action a.k.a $howtime. More activity = more placements…everyone in the recruitment world knows the power of this equation. Our action-driven interface prompts, prods and pushes recruiters towards the one thing that truly matters: Placements.

From job posting to launching your very own jobs site within minutes to market-leading analytics suite, Vincere provides businesses with unmatched features and flexibility at startup prices.

Raise your hand if you would like to get more jobs, more candidates and make more placements. Raise your hand, if you would like your business to make more $$$. Chances are you only have two hands and they are both in the air right now…so if you’re not already using Vincere, what are you waiting for? Hit on any of the green action buttons on the website to get started.

Bernie Schiemer CEO at Vincere

Chief Executive Officer

Bernie Schiemer

Chief Executive Officer

Bernie has 15 years of experience as a recruitment business owner. In 2001, he relocated from London to Tokyo to establish James Harvard International in Japan, which he grew from 3 to 115 staff in just under 6 years. As the first foreign company to launch a successful RPO business in Japan- under Bernie’s lead – James Harvard International became the pioneer of a previously unheard of concept in the Japanese business world.

In February 2007, Bernie sold the James Harvard International Japanese business to the UK largest staffing company, Hays PLC. Bernie successfully completed his earn-out in December 2009 as Managing Director of Hays Japan.

Post earn-out, Bernie switched gears to pursue his passion for technology. Having had the unique experience of working closely with recruitment firm owners and consultants, Bernie knew first-hand what recruitment businesses needed – a system that focuses on revenue; not just a system of record…& that’s how Vincere was born.

When he’s not working Bernie is happy kicking back, relaxing and watching his beloved Boston Celtics on the court.
