It’s an app to help job seekers find a job in a day, without even sending a CV or cover letter. The value proposition of JOB TODAY could not be simpler.
JOB TODAY is the best place to find jobs in retail, the restaurant industry and other fields. With the app, you can find full-time or part-time employment wherever you are, whenever you want. Having run and advised numerous businesses in Luxembourg throughout their careers, co-founders Eugene and Polina quit their jobs to embark on the adventure of launching their own startup. The two Russians have now tasked themselves with the mission of using mobile technology to help millions of people, daily, find a job the same day they start looking.
“JOB TODAY is a revolutionary mobile marketplace that connects employers and candidates in seconds, 24/7, directly from their phones,” explained COO Polina Montano. A job brings a paycheck, but it also brings back self-esteem and dignity to people. This is what JOB TODAY does, one job at a time.
The Luxembourg-based startup, headquartered at BGL BNP Paribas’ lux future lab incubator, first targeted Spain, a core market where the mobile app ranked number one in less than a year. The startup has recently started expanding to other countries, such as the UK, where it entered the market a few weeks ago. It is doing very well in its new markets, and shows no sign of slowing down its expansion anytime soon.
The startup focuses on hospitality and retail – service sectors faced with a high turnover of staff. “Our sweet spot is a small or medium business owner who is looking to hire someone within hours. These are employers who are out and about the whole day: serving customers, dealing with suppliers, paying bills – no time to waste. JOB TODAY is there to help,” they explained. The startup provides an immediate and time-efficient solution for these business owners’ hiring needs. JOB TODAY’s clear identification of its customers’ needs facilitated the startup in building an app that is conquering its core market.
The rapidly expanding international teams are now based in Barcelona, Madrid, London and Luxembourg. “This is only the beginning. We are only one year old,” explained the co-founders. The quickly growing startup ecosystem of the Grand Duchy suits them well. “Luxembourg is a great place to start a company. It offers a convenient location in the center of Europe, great infrastructure and a flexible legal framework. Our management team is based in Luxembourg and we are looking forward to move other departments of the company here as well,” confided the co-founders.
Backed by the world’s leading venture capital firms, the startup has made its ambitions clear. “JOB TODAY was born both mobile and global. We want to help millions of people around the globe find a job from the comfort of their mobile phone. We are now aiming at becoming the number one hiring app for hospitality and retail globally!”
