Queensland-based job matching startup GetAhead has raised AUD 1.38 million ($1.02 million USD) in a pre-seed funding. The funding round wasled by VC firm Tempus Partners, with participation from Right Click Capital and a number of angel investors.
GetAhead is a platform that uses data analytics and machine learning to match job seekers with suitable employment opportunities. GetAhead will use the funds to expand its team and further develop its platform.
In a nod to the very popular Tinder for matchmaking, the app uses a “swipe right” gesture to match people, so they don’t need to submit a cover letter or resume, while employers get access to a pool of qualified candidates.
