So...we received funding! Now what are we going to invest in?
If you are an experienced developer and keen on growing you should definitely read this bit.
On Tuesday 4 November we announced our Series A investment by Randstad Innovation Fund and Qmulus. A really exciting moment for the whole team. This is the starting point we all were waiting for and it feels like having trained all these years for the Champions League and now finally stepping on the grass to perform. We are growing, in fact we were already growing fast, but with this investment we can ramp up our activities and execute our growth plans at an even faster pace. Please also check out this article on Techcrunch about why Randstad Innovation Fund invests in companies like Qandidate.com.
So now a couple of days after the investment announcement... things should have been back to normal... yet they're not! The positive vibe and energy of the announcement have stayed in the office and we are left with this exciting feeling we can make a real impact and difference in the recruitment market.
So what are the next steps?
The investment will be used to build a best-in-class team of energetic, creative, analytical, and highly motivated people that are capable of transforming these innovative ideas into an industry-leading business. In our quest to build the best recruitment system in the universe (and beyond ;-)) we need great software engineers who want to contribute to this journey. Hiring great and talented software engineers has now become a key objective for us. We've build the current version of Qandidate.com with effectively just 3 developers... imagine what can be achieved with a skilled team a multiple of times larger than that.
Hope we've sparked your excitement and interest about the journey ahead! Contact me if you want to learn more about the opportunities we have and what's in it for you.
More about Qandidate.com
We started this journey more than 1.5 years ago and today more than 7,000 companies from all over the world have found their way to Qandidate.com. This number is growing by the day and we see our customers becoming more and more active as they add new vacancies every day. Last month alone we processed more than 35,000 candidates in the system!
Qandidate.com is launched as spin-off out of VONQ as we truly believe that the existing recruitment systems haven't really made the difference yet and we believe we can deliver something fresher and smarter to the recruitment community. We want nothing but the best for our clients!
