Romanian startup Jobful, which developed a recruitment through gamification platform, has completed its first angel investment round and obtained EUR 100,000 in funding from three private investors, according to start-up.ro.
“The recruitment industry has an urgent need for innovation, as companies of all sizes having more and more difficulty identifying, hiring and retaining real talents. I think Jobful’s approach, based on gamification, education and authenticity, is the right move at the right time. The team is young, smart and ambitious, so I am certain that they will animate the online recruitment market and quickly grow internationally,” said Dragos Nicolaescu, one of the three investors in this round.
The investment will be used for both further platform development as well as a mobile app to be launched this fall. The company also plans to open up a new funding round in the fall in order to prepare to launch its product on five new European markets.
Jobful launched in June 2018 and targets young professionals who are looking to develop their careers as well as companies seeking to make the recruitment process more efficient by providing an initial test of candidates’ skills and an assessment of their interests.
