Sense, a San Francisco, CA-based engagement platform designed to improve contractor work experience and increase loyalty to employers, raised $10m in seed and Series A funding.
The round was led by Accel and GV with participation from Signia Venture Partners, IDG Ventures and Khosla Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to increase their hiring and product development efforts.
Launched in 2016 by Anil Dharni, CEO, Ram Gudavalli, CTO, Alex Rosen, VP of Product, and Pankaj Jindal, Head of Sales, Sense provides a platform that automates staffing agencies’ communications with candidates, allowing agencies to deliver personalized emails and texts timed to specific moments in a worker’s job cycle, e.g., welcoming a new employee, checking in on the first day of an assignment, soliciting feedback at midpoint, and surfacing new opportunities when a job ends. These automated messages are managed through a dashboard that also displays analytics on engagement and worker feedback.
Customers include large staffing agencies such as Vaco, PrideStaff and CDI.
