JobGet, a Boston, MA-based mobile Job platform for hourly workers, raised $2.1m in seed funding. The round was led by Pillar VC with participation from Data Point Capital Partners, Crocker Mountain Capital, EO Ventures, Greg Donoghue (Clover Food Lab), and Anna Marie Wagner (Gingko Bioworks).
“We are beyond excited to be partnering with our investors to help grow JobGet to a national platform. We created JobGet because we personally saw how the system for hiring hourly workers is broken and antiquated,” says Tony Liu, Co-founder & CEO at JobGet. “During the pandemic, it has been humbling to help so many hospitality and retail workers who were abruptly out of work quickly get rehired as essential workers. We were happy to assist local businesses affected by the pandemic with open access to the platform to list job openings.”
JobGet will use the funding to launch a national expansion after a successful regional launch in Massachusetts.
