CornerJob raises $19m round

The new round brings the total funding raised to date by the company to $54 million.

CornerJob, the leading blue-collar recruiting platform founded by Miguel Vicente, Gerard Olivé, David Rodríguez, and Mauro Maltagliati, has received new investment of $19 million, following the $25 series B-round announced in July 2016, bringing its total funding to $54 million. Investors participating in this round include Northzone, Randstad Innovation Fund, e.ventures, Samaipata Ventures, Caixa Capital Risc, Sabadell Venture Capital, Mediaset Italia, Mediaset España, TF1, 5M Ventures, Media Digital Ventures, Augesco Ventures and Azteca.

The new funding enables CornerJob to further develop its services to streamline the recruitment value chain. The company has recently launched a partnership in France with world-leading HR company Randstad, to allow small and medium-sized companies to manage the entire hiring process on mobile; from job advert to payslip.

CornerJob is already a market leader within its markets of France, Italy, Spain and Mexico, reaching 7 million downloads and more than 500,000 job listings by nearly 150,000 companies since launch. CornerJob is also gearing up to expand to new markets, and is currently evaluating media-for-equity agreements with leading media partners in Europe and in the US.

David Rodríguez, CEO and co-founder of CornerJob, explains this new round comes as a recognition from investors of results to date, and continued commitment to accelerate Cornerjob’s growth: “What we’ve accomplished in our four existing markets in Europe and Mexico, allows us to strengthen our position as a strategic partner to companies with hiring needs, accelerating and simplifying the recruitment processes for lightly skilled positions and flexible jobs. With these new resources, we are going to expand the reach of our platform by implementing new services that will allow companies to speed up and further improve the selection and hiring process of new talent.”

CornerJob, which recently received the The Next Web Tech5 Award for fastest growing start-up, and was featured as one of the Top 10 apps of the year in the Apple App Store, offers services to a broad range of companies; from restaurants, hotels and retail chains, to industry, construction, sales and the public sector. The users of the platform include both SMEs and big companies. Current customers include Leroy Merlin, Domino’s, Subway, McDonald’s, Novotel, Best Western, Burger King, AT&T, DHL, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria’s Secret, Manpower and Geox to name a few.
