AUSTIN, Texas and LONDON — Job.com, the AI-enabled technology recruitment platform, has secured an undisclosed investment from two New York and California-based financial institutions, Serengeti Asset Management and Ghost Tree Partners. The investment will accelerate the delivery and development of Job.com’s technology and fund further acquisitions in the recruitment and staffing sector.
“We are delighted to have Serengeti and Ghost Tree as capital partners,” said Paul Sloyan, Job.com CEO and Chairman. “Their support will allow us to accelerate our revenue growth by leveraging further development of our technology and additional acquisitions to complement the eight staffing and technology businesses we have previously acquired.”
The financing investment, provided by Serengeti and Ghost Tree, builds upon previous investment and financing rounds with New York-based SOJA Ventures and Serengeti, which provided financing for Job.com’s M&A strategy, including its June 2022 acquisition of recruitment processing outsource (RPO) firm, Princeton One.
“Serengeti has already proven to be a supportive partner to Job.com, enabling us to close our most recent acquisition without any delays in the summer,” explained Sloyan. “They recognize and understand our vision in terms of our disruptive technology as well as our strategy to acquire successful and established recruitment businesses with unique and vital data to train our AI while adding revenue and positive EBITDA. Now that Serengeti and Ghost Tree are strategic financial partners, we are in a great position to continue growing Job.com through technology and acquisitions.”
Job.com has made a total of six acquisitions since the summer of 2020, a strategy the company intends to continue.
“We are delighted to grow our investment in Job.com,” said Jody LaNasa, Founder, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of Serengeti Asset Management. “We firmly believe that Job.com’s industry-transforming technology dramatically improves the recruitment process for its clients, and that its roll-up strategy of acquiring firms, and then applying its technology to them, will result in significant value accretion while compiling large databases to mine.”
