Jobcase, a Boston, MA-based social platform focused on work, closed its Series A-1 funding round with an additional $11.5m.
The round – which is on top of $7m in Series A funding led by Savano Capital Partners, and brings the total raised in 2017 to $18.5m – was led by Providence Equity Partners.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its growth rate.
Led by Fred Goff, CEO, Jobcase aims to prepare members and employers for the future of work where numerous employers, frequent job changes, and more contract and part-time work is the norm – by providing both the community and tech-backed tools, like blockchain, that future workers and employers will need.
The company’s platform manages all things job-related, including access to the knowledge, connections and wisdom of over 80 million registered members. It is an industry affiliated partner of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, CSAIL, and the technology also powers over 100 job sites in the Jobcase Network.
