You may recall that earlier this year, Snagajob received a large cash infusion of $100 million from a number of investment sources. This week, the company announced that it had purchased PeopleMatter, a cloud-based workforce management platform, for an undisclosed price.
Snagajob is a leading hiring platform that connects hourly employees with hiring companies, 70 million members strong and 200,000 employers using it’s wide range of services. The company is currently partnered with half of the big brands on the Fortune 1000 list, including Disneyland, Dunkin Donuts, Chipotle, and The Home Depot.
Zachery Eanes, Staff Reporter for the Washington Business Journal, advises that, “The deal not only expands Snagajob’s portfolio, especially within the service industry, but perhaps more importantly gives it access to PeopleMatter’s digital and mobile technologies.”
As Snagajob acquires PeopleMatter, it’s one of a couple recent smart moves on behalf of the online hiring platform. PeopleMatter has 6,000 customers and over 47,000 locations using it’s services, which include a full-cycle workforce management system, a learning center, scheduling, and performance management capabilities.
Snagajob also recently announced a partnership with LinkedIn (now owned by Microsoft) and brought Jocelyn Mangan, former OpenTable’s head of product, to be their Chief Product and Marketing Officer.
Kim Costa, job search coach for Snagajob, writes over on their blog that, “We will be a one-stop-shop for finding job applicants, engaging those candidates to apply, hiring those candidates in minutes and scheduling them into their first shift.”
