Temporary staff marketplace Staff Finder has just closed a €20m funding round.
The Zurich-based company received the funding from One Peak Partners and Goldman Sachs Private Capital.
Staff Finder offers a software platform that lets businesses find temporary workers to cover immediate hourly or daily staffing needs.
The funding will help the company accelerate its international expansion strategy and support its product development roadmap.
Staff Finder will also be looking to push further into the UK market, expanding its team and presence in Britain.
Speaking about the investment, Viktor CalabrÃ², the founder and CEO of Staff Finder said: “We are thrilled to partner up with One Peak and Goldman Sachs. This is a significant milestone in Staff Finder’s history and the beginning of an exciting new era for the company.
“We envisage becoming the first truly global on-demand staffing marketplace, providing businesses in major cities around the world with a technology solution that fits their needs. Today, we already work with more than 5,000 customers and are scaling rapidly with the support and operational guidance of our investors.”
Of all the job requests posted on the site, 98% of them are filled within four hours of creation, letting businesses manage unpredictability and quickly respond to staff shortages during peak demand.
