Seoul-based Around Us Inc. launched its jobs site in July last year. The start-up’s users have exceeded 14,000. AroundUs was founded in August 2016 by Daniel Sung Jin Kim (LinkedIn profile), formerly Google’s strategic business development and partnerships manager.

Job Korea Corp., Incruit.comKr.Indeed.com, Wanted.co.kr, and KreditJob.com are some other major job sites in Korea. Another recently-introduced one is ScoutChain.io. The site leverages blockchain technology to connect job-seekers and cut out middlemen.
