Google will shut down its job application tracking system "Google Hire" that was launched just two years ago, the company said in a statement. The company had built "Hire" with Diane Greene, a former Alphabet board member.

The aim was to simplify the hiring process, with a workflow that integrated things like searching for applicants and scheduling interviews into Google's G Suite offerings like Search, Gmail, Calendar and Docs, TechCrunch reported on Tuesday.

"Hire" came into existence after Google acquired Bebop -- a company started by Greene -- for a reported $380 million in 2015. Greene left Alphabet's board earlier this year.
