Berlin-based recruitment startup Zenjob has raised €15 million in a Series B funding round.
The round was led by AXA Venture Partners, with participation from existing investors Acton Capital Partners, Redalpine, and Atlantic Labs.
The on-demand staffing platform Zenjobs connects companies in several different fields – including logistics, hotels, events, and retail – with students looking for jobs in several cities across Germany. Students receive real-time job offers through Zenjob directly on their smartphones, and can confirm the job offer with just one click in the app.
Fritz Trott, co-founder and CEO of Zenjob, said: “Traditional temporary employment agencies are still struggling with a digital transformation in the market. What the staffing sector is lacking are innovative products. With our automated software technology, we manage to place the majority of personnel within only a few hours. At the same time, we offer our clients long-term planning security.”
The startup was founded in 2015 by Fritz Trott, Arvid Seeberg-Elverfeldt, Cihan Aksakal, Frederik Fahning and Cornelius v. Rantzau.
Zenjobs will use the fresh capital in product development and the expansion of the business across Germany and beyond.
