The Next Tinder for Jobs?: Monster Acquires Jobr

JobrWe have not heard from Monster in a while. I have a feeling that is about to change. On June 8, 2016, Monster announced that is has purchased Jobr. Jobr, once called the “Tinder for Job” app was released in 2014 but quickly launched to #2 business app on itunes.

“In just a few short years, Jobr has built a simple and consumer-friendly, mobile-first approach to connecting jobs and people. Bringing the Jobr app and team to Monster will enhance our leading global talent platform for job search, people search and related solutions across mobile channels,” said Mark Stoever, President And Chief Operating Officer, Monster.  “Our company’s promise is to bring humanity and opportunity to the job market. Adding the impressive Jobr team to the Monster family is another incremental step in delivering on this promise and bringing new opportunities to connect jobs and people to market.”

Jobs posted on Monster are already featured on the Jobr app but now will be integrated with the monster global talent platform. This acquisition will also allow Monster to have more of a Global presence.
