This ambitious fundraising aims to accelerate and advance Gojob's technology and further its commitment to employment for all.
Gojob is now the global leader in digital staffing.
Thanks to the automation of recruitment processes, its patented artificial intelligence algorithm and the digitization of administrative flows, Gojob operates remotely, online with a strong local human presence with onsites.. This unique model enables Gojob to combine commercial performance with operational efficiencies. More than 1,000 customers in the US and France leverage Gojob's technology to recruit better, faster and at scale.
With this new fundraising, Gojob will accelerate its R&D investments as well as the growth of the US and French markets. Gojob will also enrich its portfolio of services - particularly training and financial products - for its 500,000 temporary workers in order to better support them throughout their professional careers.
Our Amundi Finance and Solidarity fund aims to invest in unlisted companies providing solutions to the main social and environmental challenges. We are very happy to support GoJob, which is part of one of our 5 investment themes: job creation and in particular the employability of a low-skilled public. We are fully in line with its values: an innovative company at the service of social impact, which allows people who are far from employment to have access to temporary assignments, as well as to appropriate training thanks to a total digitization of the sector.
Since 2019, we have been supporting Gojob in its development and are delighted to renew our support by accompanying them towards this new change of scale. Thanks to the digital tool, Gojob offers "tailor-made" support to vulnerable people reintegrating into the labor market, and thus puts technology at the service of people: it is this alliance of technical performance and social impact that the Banque des Territoires seeks as an investor, in the service of more attractive and more inclusive territories, by supporting access to employment and training in the best conditions and throughout life.
Recruitment is the major challenge of the moment and for the years to come… we have to rethink our models! Gojob offers a personalized, simple and effective solution to give everyone a chance, starting with temporary staffing. Sourcing, matching, qualification, training, onboarding, contracting, payroll… technology at the service of performance and impact is everywhere with us.
With its 1,000 customers and 500,000 Gojobbers, Gojob continues to accelerate its development in France and the US, aiming to achieve more than 60% growth by the end of this year and profitability by 2023.
Founded in 2015, Gojob is a “Workforce-As-A-Service platform” that leverages its own technologies and data to make the job market more fluid and accessible, providing each individual with dignity. “At Gojob, we staff instantly, at scale and with care”.
A member of the FT120 French Tech promotion for two consecutive years, twice praised by the prestigious Financial Times ranking, and elected n°1 of the Champions of Growth 2021 by Les Echos, Gojob continues its rise in the job market for a concrete social impact.
Under process to become a B-Corp, Gojob has now more than 500,000 registered workers, and places them with major international groups as well as SMBs in the Logistics, Distribution and Manufacturing sectors.

An independent management company, Alter Equity was born from the desire to finance the environmental and social transitions that our society needs towards a more sustainable, more generous, more humane and globally more responsible economy.
It was the first to support the general interest in its dual social and environmental dimension while seeking a financial return that rewards the risk taken by its subscribers. It was thus the first in France to support the concept of positive impact investment.
It is currently deploying its second fund of €110m by investing amounts of €3 to €11m in the capital of European startups whose activity is useful to people or the environment. It was also the first non-listed fund management company to impose as a condition for its investment the commitment to a rigorous CSR approach, requiring in particular to carry out a carbon assessment and to open up the capital to all employees. www.alter-equity.com
