Staffjoy, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of a workforce tool that builds schedules automatically, raised its first round of funding of undisclosed amount.
Backers included Ray Tonsing’s Caffeinated Capital, Kal Vepuri’s Brainchild Holdings, Semil Shah’s Haystack Fund, Tom Hash, David Ulevitch, Harry Cheung, Sam Wen, Jonathan Chu, Anamitra Banjeri, and Marc Abramowitz.
Launched in October 2015 from the first class of Y Combinator’s Fellowship program by Philip Thomas and Andrew Hess, Staffjoy provides an AI tool for employee scheduling workforce that works automatically, while respecting worker preferences and not requiring human scheduler. The web app collects worker availability and business demand, and then schedules workers according to their preferences, as well as the business’s rules.
The tool also incorporates new compliance management, time clock, time off, and attendance features.
The company offers two plans: Flex, for contractors ($3 monthly per worker), and Boss, for employees ($5 monthly per worker).
