KODA Raises $3 Million From Angel Investors
KODA.us is a new recruiting website that has raised $3 million in funding from several angel investors. KODA allows users to set up non-traditional profiles such as “why I’m unique,” “My story,” and “How we’re different.” Companies will be able to fill out profiles such as “How we’re different” and “Reasons to work here.”
KODA has been in beta for a couple months and has partnered with about 350 corporations, non-profits, and businesses so far.
“KODA is more professional than Facebook but more personal than LinkedIn, letting both sides of the hiring equation get to know each other,” stated KODA co-founder and CEO Jeff Berger. “Using a job board is like searching for a needle in a haystack. KODA gives you more needles, less haystack, and we’ve developed proprietary technology that facilitates a smoother recruitment process for both candidates and employers.”
KODA has developed a proprietary crawler that pulls up to date job listings directly from the websites of employers. KODA is based in San Francisco and has major operations in New Orleans.
