Identified.com, a San Francisco, CA-based career site for young professionals, has raised $21m in Series B financing.
The round was co-led by VantagePoint Capital Partners and Capricorn Investment Group, with participation from previous investors Tim Draper, Bill Draper and Innovation Endeavors.
The company intends to use the funding to expand the team – with a focus on game designers to develop the user experience and data scientists to manage its database.

In conjunction with the funding, Bill Harding, managing director from VantagePoint, will join Identified’s Board of Directors.
