Jobaline, a Kirkland, Wash.-based bilingual, mobile hourly job marketplace, raised $4.3m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Madrona Venture Group, Rudy Gadre, with participation from other angel investors from New York, Seattle, San Diego and the San Francisco Bay area.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to grow its presence nationally and their community of workers, as well as double up the size of its engineering and sales teams.
Launched five months ago by Luis Salazar, CEO, Jobaline provides a mobile marketplace (mobile web and SMS application) for the 74 million hourly workers in the United States, who represent 59% of the total workforce, to find and apply for jobs from any computer, tablet, or phone in English or Spanish.
Jobaline’s process connects employers with qualified employees.
The company today announced that they have processed more than 150,000 job applications.
