Short-term, Part-time Job Matching Platform Gubgoo: “We Have Attracted Investment”

Aug 30, 2018

Needer Inc. announced that it has attracted pre-series A investments from Bon Angels Venture Partners, K Bridge Investment and Stonebridge Ventures. Needer runs Gubgoo, a specialized job matching platform for short-term and part-time work. It provides details about workers that can be hired in real time for jobs with an immediate start on a self-employment basis and, vice versa, connects these job seekers to information on short-term, part-time work. Until now, the accumulated payment of jobs posted through Gubgoo is 1.2 billion won (approx. USD 10,723). The platform has secured sixty thousand registered job seekers in Seoul, Gyeonggi-do and Busan, among other places. Needer said the growth rate of Gubgoo reached 300 percent year-on-year in the first half of 2018. The company also noted that the service has high usage rates as matching is completed within three seconds of employers posting a job ad. The satisfaction rate of self-employed users registered on Gubgoo is high. Job seekers can also receive a letter of recommendation from those that have used their services on the site to certify their work experience, which can be beneficial for finding future employment. “Gubgoo encourages employers and job seekers to care about their reputation, thereby establishing a mutually advantageous circle to guarantee high-quality matches. We have invested in the company’s ability of execution to create visions and achievements for the talent recruitment market,” said Tae-yeon Jeon, of Bon Angels Venture Partners. Needer will focus on expanding and upgrading its services through these investments. It plans to offer further diversified services through data analysis, different from existing portal service providers. For more information on Gubgoo, please click here .
