Just over two years ago, we launched Jobr with the promise of connecting people with their dream jobs. The product was rough, our team was small, and we realized that we’d need a lot of help to succeed in this objective. Over the last two years, we’ve been able to assemble a world-class group of employees, investors, and advisors, and it’s with this group that we’ve grown Jobr into a leading mobile job search application in the US.
Jobr’s growth is something we are extremely proud of and has been our primary obsession. Over the course of our brief history, job seekers have swiped more than 100 million times, our app has reached #2 in the Apple App Store Business section (with a 4.5-star rating), and, most importantly, tens of thousands of people have been hired. Our mission remains the same: to be the best job search and recruitment product in the world. Though we’ve made meaningful progress towards this, we’re most excited by the opportunity in front of us.
Today, we’re pleased to announce that Jobr has been acquired by Monster Worldwide ($MWW). Jobr has been working with Monster for over a year now, and there is a strong alignment between us — from how we approach recruiting, to the reasons why we do what we do. With Monster, Jobr will have a much greater impact on the job search market by expanding our team and resources, growing our userbase, and launching our mobile apps in new markets. We’re excited to take the next step in Jobr’s growth and are more confident than ever that we’ll be able to accomplish our mission.
We couldn’t have come this far without the help of our investors, advisors, and most importantly, you — our users. We’re thrilled to turn another page in this story and have you all along for the ride.
