The remote job board market is a highly competitive one these days.
LifeShack, a remote & hybrid work job site, says they are “raising $5.7M” to accelerate growth on their job search platform.
So basically they put out a press release stating they WANT to raise money.
With 31% of the workforce already working in remote or hybrid schedules, and with a projected 36.2M remote workers in the United States by 2025, there is a growing need for flexible work options around the country. Forward-focused companies and organizations are offering remote and hybrid options in increasing numbers, finding ways to tap into the global workforce and connect with the best talent from around the world. They also realize that by offering flexible work options, they can provide their employees with a healthier work-life balance, leading to greater employee engagement and retention.
While more professionals than ever before are turning to remote and hybrid work options, most job sites limit searches to only remote or in-person work. While these options will be valuable to particular segments of the workforce, they don’t offer the true flexibility that companies and professionals desire.
LifeShack was founded by Patrick Da Costa Guimairais and Lauren Wallett, two leaders in the world of flexible work. Guimarais is a software architect with deep experience in the startup space. He has been a part of three exits, working as a lead engineer developing compelling technology solutions.
This can include remote, remote-optional, hybrid, and time zone flexible work. By providing greater search options to job seekers, they make it possible for talented individuals to work at their dream company, no matter where they are living in the world.
They use a three-tiered pricing model for corporations, offering weekly subscriptions that enable companies to post to the LifeShack job board, boost jobs across the website and LifeShack community reaching thousands of potential candidates, and other premium features such as creating video job posts and working with a dedicated recruitment partner.
LifeShack is positioned to be more than a simple job search board – they are an essential remote recruitment platform to connect the best professionals to the best organizations in the country.Press Release
The remote job board space is very competitive and already served by a number of good sites like FlexJobs, RemoteOk and several others. LifeShack has a ways to go to compete with these players.
