Estonian Jobbatical sets its sights on Singapore

Jobbatical, the tech job platform that connects job seekers experiencing wanderlust with global work opportunities, has raised $2m in funding led by Union Square Ventures and LocalGlobe, with participation from existing investor Smartcap. The investment will finance the company’s development and expansion plans.
Jobbatical was founded in Tallinn, Estonia, in June 2014 by Karoli Hindriks with Ronald Hindriks and Allan Maeots joining shortly afterwards. The company charges a small commission on each job placement and now operates across 40 countries with south-east Asia being its fastest growing region.
