08 June 2016, USA :
Monster Worldwide Inc., a global leader in connecting jobs and people, today announced that it has acquired Jobr, the leading mobile job discovery app.
Monster has helped people improve their lives with better jobs, and employers find the best talent for two decades now. Today, the company offers services in more than 40 countries, providing some of the broadest, most sophisticated job seeking, career management, recruitment and talent management capabilities.
Mark Stoever, President and Chief Operating Officer, Monster said, “In just a few short years, Jobr has built a simple and consumer-friendly, mobile-first approach to connecting jobs and people. Bringing the app and team to Monster will enhance our leading global talent platform for job search, people search and related solutions across mobile channels.”
Monster, whose jobs are already featured on the Jobr app, will immediately begin to integrate the Jobr app with the Monster global talent platform, initially focusing on building out key capabilities including single sign on for users and developing Monster membership workflows. The company will then work to extend the Jobr app to other markets in which it operates through early 2017.
The Jobr app uses a ‘Tinder-like’ model, allowing job seekers to quickly connect with or dismiss job opportunities by swiping right or left on job postings and then apply to those jobs. Jobr also provides tools for recruiters to manage and interact with applicants.
