Unify Jobs Raises $4.5M in Seed Funding

Jun 24, 2022

FinSMEs Search for: Unify Jobs , a Cleveland, OH-based equitable hiring technology company, raised $4.5M in Seed funding. The round was led by North Coast Ventures with participation from Jumpstart and several other Cleveland-based investors. The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach. Led by longtime Cleveland tech entrepreneur Stephen McHale, Unify Jobs provides an equitable hiring technology platform, FlashHired, whose skills and interest-based matching system for hiring eliminates the bias inherent in resume technology while masking job seeker identities until both stakeholders have expressed interest. FlashHired was developed and patented by Unify Labs over two years and 35,000 R&D hours. FinSMEs
