JobGet, an app for hourly workers, has secured $52 million in financing, which it will use to support its growth.
JobGet’s app lets jobseekers and hiring managers connect directly, with workers able to find out about local opportunities with one click. The company says that after creating a quick mobile profile, candidates can be hired within hours or even minutes.
The app has been downloaded nearly 2 million times, and is a category leader in monthly downloads, active users, and user satisfaction, says the startup, citing mobile analytics firms Sensortower and Apptopia.
More than 50,000 companies have posted vacancies on the app, including Home Depot, California Pizza Kitchen, Showcase Cinemas and Taco Bell.
“Our app is just the beginning. We are building a new type of platform that enables deeper relationships between our talented hourly workers and hiring managers, with intelligent technology connecting both to better opportunities,” said CEO and co-founder Tony Liu.
The Series B funding round includes $12 million in venture debt financing. Jazz Venture Partners and Sanabil Investments co-led the round, with participation from other investors, including Pillar VC.
Along with the funding, the Boston-based startup, which was founded in 2019, has also hired two new executives.
Ryan Eberhard (LinkedIn profile), erstwhile chief product officer at ZipRecruiter, was appointed president, and will focus on product innovation and stepping up growth across the business.
Meanwhile, Louisa Cartwright (LinkedIn profile), formerly VP of people at Headspace, assumes the same role at JobGet, where she will focus on operational excellence and human-centered design.
