A new job board that also features a managed recruiting service has launched from stealth focused on global startup jobs.
Ray Gibson, Founder and CEO of Funded.club, says: “We arrived at the need for a job board to serve startups with more resources to screen candidates on their own, while smaller teams still prefer our fully-managed headhunting service.”
INTERESTING FEATURE: Funded.club is integrated with LinkedIn and other tools for ad promotion. They also claim to have built a database of 80,000 startup candidates to which they promote specific jobs.
Backed by a fully remote team of experienced recruitment specialists, the company says they saw significant traction during the pandemic, as startups sought more cost-effective ways to recruit talent.
“There’s still a lot of uncertainty in the world right now,” said Gibson. “But one thing is certain: savvy startups are still hiring for strategic roles, and they need top-tier talent to help reach their ambitious goals. That’s where we come in.”
The new job board will not accept registrations from recruitment agencies or non-startup employers. Any employers that do not meet the startup criteria will be filtered out and refunded. “We want to make sure that our job board is focused on startups,” said Gibson. “That’s who we’re here to help.”
To further ensure that only legitimate startups are using the job board, the Funded.club team checks new employer registrations against public records and Crunchbase for startup status and funding to date.
“We’re excited to launch this new job board and help startups around the world grow their teams,” said Gibson. “It’s just one more way we’re supporting the startup ecosystem.”
The site is offering a special introductory rate of $499 per month for unlimited job postings with the option to post a single free trial job for 14 days.
They even offer low, fixed-fee recruiting under a managed service from $3900 per hire. This hybrid approach offers more revenue streams than just paid postings. Most tech companies have reduced hiring greatly so this is a time for tech boards to work on building their job seeker audience.
