Jibe Just Got A Major Series A Boost

Jibe logoAlmost a year old, JIBE (or/alternately Jibe) is more than just a portal for job listings. Nor is it a collection of resumes from job seekers. What JIBE does is improve the process of getting a person’s resume to the right company. This idea has propelled its steady growth since being founded early last year.

Here’s Jibe in a previous post dated September 2010:

“Jibe was developed in Dogpatch Labs in NYC, and because of their hard work, its founders snagged an $875K seed funding from Polaris Venture Partners, Lerer Media Ventures, Zelkova Ventures, Jason Calacanis, and the brothers Kushner, Josh and Jared… Once job seekers link their, for example, Facebook account to sign in, Jibe will extract relevant information such as educational and employment history from their account and fill up their Jibe profile.”

The people at JIBE now have extra reason to feel motivated after a battery of VCs (including Lerer Ventures) bestowed $6 million in Series A late last week. As most funding rounds go, the major infusion will be poured on JIBE’s engineering talent and product tweaking.

A quick visit of JIBE HQ brings this particular tidbit to attention:

“When it comes to getting a job, what matters is who you know. JIBE connects you to people you already know at companies you want to work for and increases your chances of landing a great job.”

‘Brisk’ best describes JIBE’s business these days. A projected $1 million is the amount of JIBE’s revenue this year and user numbers are expected to grow accordingly.
