Jobcase, a worker-centric social service provider, has acquired job matching platform Upward.net.
“We’ve been big fans of the Upward team for years and are thrilled to grow our combined network and technology,” said Fred Goff, co-founder and CEO of Jobcase said. “The current K-shaped recovery is increasing inequities in our system of capitalism; meanwhile employers looking to ramp back up are struggling to find the talent they need as they face a surprising imbalance in labor supply and demand. Today, we’ve taken a large step forward in scale and reach to ensure Jobcase stands ready to help get America and its workers back on track and back to work.”
“Since our inception, Upward’s mission has been to connect job seekers with relevant employment opportunities while helping employers spend their recruitment advertising budgets more efficiently,” said Upward CEO, Steve Lombardi. “By becoming part of Jobcase, our optimization technology will benefit from the combined scale, enabling us to serve job seekers and employers more effectively.”
