Mobile recruitment app, Job Today has just announced a $10m round of Series A funding.

The round was led by Accel, with Felix Capital and Mangrove Capital Partners also taking part.

The Luxembourg-based platform was first launched in Spain in May last year, and will use this latest funding expand into London and Paris.

Job Today also has a US launch planned for later this year.

Speaking about the app, COO and co-founder Polina Montano said: “We are planning to launch Job Today in the U.S. in 2016.

“We set out to be a global solution to fix the broken recruitment industry — this is a $400bn industry globally with approximately $260bn in low-skilled staffing.

“There are 200 million unemployed people worldwide and Job Today can help them.”

How Job Today works

The app was created by Montano and Eugene Mizin, and works by connecting job seekers in the service industry with companies that are recruiting suitable to their experience.

Employers can also use the app to browse through potential employees and interact with them through an in-app chat.

Companies like Deliveroo, Reiss, Ann Summers, and YouMeSushi have used the app as part of their recruitment strategy.

Job Today is available for iOS and Android devices.
