TEL AVIV, Israel, March 4, 2021 — Papaya Global, the industry-leading workforce management platform transforming global employment, announced today that it has raised $100 million in a Series C funding, bringing the company’s valuation across $1 billion.
The new investment follows Papaya’s $40 million Series B funding announced less than 6 months ago.
The new funding round was led by GreenOaks Capital Partners and joined by IVP Ventures and Alkeon, with participation from existing investors Insight Venture Partners, Scale Ventures, Bessemer Ventures, Dynamic Loop, New Era and Workday Ventures, Access Ventures and Group 11. The new investment brings Papaya’s total funding to $190 million.
Papaya’s SaaS software unifies all workforce management tasks under one platform – from onboarding through payroll and payments – in over 140 countries. Recently, Papaya launched an HRIS functionality to enhance the employment experience and radically simplify workforce management.
Papaya’s innovative approach to the total workforce – allowing companies to hire and manage top talent anywhere and provide a high-level employee experience – quickly pushed Papaya to a commanding lead in the global workforce market.
Papaya will use the new funding to meet the strong demand for its global workforce management platform, reinforce its market leadership, and invest in its product, engineering and go-to-market teams.
