San Francisco-based startup Weekday has secured $2.2 million in funding in a recent investment round, with Venture Highway as the main contributor along with angel investors. Founded in 2021 by Amit Singh, Anubav Malik, and Chetan Dalal, and backed by Y Combinator, Weekday focuses on streamlining engineer recruitment.

It employs a crowdsourced reference network where software engineers vouch for peers, integrating social connections from platforms like LinkedIn.
