Digital staffing platform Jodop raises $1 million Seed round

Morocco-based on demand temporary staffing platform Jobop has raised $1M in a SEED  round led by Azur Innovation Fund, with participation from Plug and Play, and business angels. In April, the round was concluded. Jobop was established in 2021. The company matches blue collar workers with employers using its proprietary algorithm. The algorithms are applicable to sectors such as construction, hospitality, logistics and manufacturing.

The company says that it has seen a  growth of over 80% on a quarterly basis. It said in a statement, “We’ve seen a phenomenal market response since our launch in 2021. Many companies have turned to temporary workers because of the economic uncertainty surrounding Covid. Jobop has been simplifying and accelerating their experience of finding qualified and vetted workers”.

The funds will be used for further improvement of its tech product and expansion to new countries. A launch in Egypt is planned for the end of 2012. Adnane Filali, General Partner at Azur Innovation Fund concluded, “We are thrilled to invest in Jobop and support them in their ambition of becoming the leading temp staffing company in Africa. Not only are they building a robust business but will also be having an important social impact by providing jobs to thousands of Africans”.
