WorkGenius, an AI-based freelancing platform that enables enterprise clients to staff projects around the globe, has just extended its series A funding to a total of $10M. The company is set to enter the U.S. freelance market joining the ranks of Upwork which just went public.
The additional funding will be used to grow the US presence and develop the product further. WorkGenius predominantly serves eCommerce, Media & Publishing, as well as high growth technology companies.
The team counts 55 people and is set to grow to 100 by the end of 2019. It was founded in Hamburg, Germany.
Freelance job sites are a hot commodity these days because of the widespread growth of the industry. It will be interesting to see how fast these new players can gain traction in the market with several such sites now in existence.
