Jobcase announces $100 million growth round

Cutting-edge competitive intelligence, mathematical modeling and behavioral analysis are what it takes to succeed in the ever-competitive startup scene. Link Ventures has perfected that equation and has quickly become the model for identifying the next “it” companies in the Cambridge, Mass. ecosystem.

Finding the right match for employers and prospective employees is getting easier thanks to Jobcase, an open-access platform dedicated to empowering people in their work-lives. Part of the Link Ventures portfolio since the company’s founding, Jobcase announced today it has closed a $100 million growth round led by Providence Strategic Growth (PSG).

Since Jobcase was founded a decade ago, the company has seen tremendous growth. This latest round of funding will continue to support that growth and accelerate product development and services for Jobcasers (Jobcase members), enabling members to more easily promote themselves and better engage with employment opportunities, among other new offerings. Jobcase is turning the job search landscape on its head. It is just that type of innovative thinking and unique perspective that makes us proud to be the founding shareholder in the company.

Jobcase Founder and CEO, Fred Goff, responded to the recent announcement;

“Jobcase is honored to pursue our mission of empowering people in their work-lives. The origins of this journey started with help from our friends at Link Ventures, and has benefited from their support thereafter. We welcome partners from all corners to help us make the future-of-work work for everyone — and we look forward to our friendship with Link Ventures to show the way,."

Fred Goff, a previous Entrepreneur in Residence at Cogo Labs, is a great example of how Cogo helps to cultivate and support entrepreneurs and their careers. At Cogo, we understand that starting a business is a skill, so here you can learn it, on the job, from some of Boston’s most successful entrepreneurs.

Congratulations, Fred and the Jobcase team for reaching this significant growth milestone! We’re excited to see what else is in store for the company over the next ten years and how much more Jobcase will continue to grow.
