CO - Head of Marketplace at Jobandtalent
Bogota, CO
Jobandtalent’s mission is to improve the employability of millions of workers in the job market. We have created a managed marketplace that connects temporary workers with leading companies with the vision that technology and the use of data is the key leverage to disrupting the temporary labour market.
To make this a reality, we have created a platform that makes the job market more transparent and liquid. Our platform digitises all recruitment processes (selection, screening, hiring, clocking, payroll...), simplifying them and generating data to improve the matching between workers and companies. We group available job offers and employment procedures so that workers can always get the right job offers and be permanently employed through Jobandtalent.
 
This way, workers can gain long term job stability because as a marketplace, we can continuously offer them job opportunities and improve their work experience as we focus on the best possible experience for them (competitive compensation, getting paid on time, employee benefits…). On the flip side, companies can access a flexible and high-quality workforce as Jobandtalent’s technology and data allows them to find the best workers (more productive, less turnover...) and manage them in an optimal way.
 
About us 
 
We are headquartered in Madrid, where Jobandtalent was founded in 2009. Since then, it has been financed by world-leading capital entities such as Softbank, Atomico, SEEK or Blackrock, becoming one of the most valued Spanish startups internationally with current revenues of over 1,000 million euros per year and recognized by FT as Europe’s 10th fastest growing startup last year.
 
Behind our technology platform that employs hundreds of thousands of workers in great companies like Amazon, XPO, Walmart, P&G or H&M, we have a team of more than 1000 employees distributed in offices in the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Sweden, Mexico and Colombia. Our plan is to continue growing such markets as we launch operations in new countries (up to 20 by 2025). And, to ensure the success of said plan we rely on self-driven and highly motivated individuals that want to help us take Jobandtalent to the next level.
