Jeff Berger is the President of Digital Media at the Universum Group, the global leader in employer branding and CEO of Doostang.com, a subsidiary of the Universum Group and a leading employment network for young professionals.
Berger joined Universum in 2011 after working with its investment arm on the acquisition of Doostang.com. Founded in 2005, Doostang has grown into a leading destination for young professionals with 1 in 4 recent graduates from the top 30 U.S. universities joining. The company experienced financial trouble following the recession but has been a successful turnaround since the acquisition. Doostang continues to profitably grow and acquired Jobfox.com in 2012, an employment site with over 9 million members.
In addition to building Doostang and the B2C arm of Universum, Berger is the President of Digital Media and oversees the direction and strategy for the digital department. Since joining Universum, Berger and his team have developed a product portfolio that helps hundreds of companies recruit candidates and increase their employer brand worldwide. Universum Digital operates career websites in eight countries and recently re-launched Wetfeet.com in the United States.
Prior to the Universum Group and Doostang, Berger spent three years as the CEO and co-founder of KODA, an Internet recruiting company based in San Francisco. Berger graduated from Tulane University and currently resides in New York City.
