If you are looking for a new place to send your jobs and buy traffic, Germany based Joblift just picked up another big round of funding. They raised ($17 million U.S.) in a Series B funding round, according to German online magazine Gründerszene.
Job boards should click here for their partnership page. You can buy traffic on a CPC basis. The company claims over 2 million monthly users and is live in Germany, the U.K., France, the Netherlands, and the U.S.
Joblift claims to pull from more than 4,000 job boards. They compete with the likes of Indeed, Adzuna and of course Google for Jobs. They seem to have built their site on “cutting-edge technology” which is great but what really counts is eyeballs on jobs.
National aggregators trying to take on the like of Indeed, ZipRecruiter and others should beware its a very competitive industry. They are going to need all those million$ to buy traffic because they have no brand yet in the U.S. Technology is not enough to compete in the online recruiting space.
