Today, we’re delighted to announce another major milestone for SkillPages. We’ve just passed the 5,000,000 members mark and we’ve closed a $9.5 million Series B funding round. Importantly however, SkillPages as a platform is working better than ever at unlocking new opportunities for our 5 million members. There are thousands of people getting contacted about new opportunities every day and we’ve started highlighting some of these stories on our blog. Helping our members find skilled people and get their skill found is the focus of SkillPages and we’re committed to continuing to improve SkillPages in this area.
Our funding round will allow us to continue to invest in technology and a team that helps unlock new opportunities for people everywhere. The recent implementation of the “SkillGraph” technology is an example of this commitment to improving our members experience through a total focus on relevance.
Having 5 million people join the platform since we launched in January 2011 is both humbling and exciting. Our additional funding will help us to increase our focus on continuing to accelerate our user growth in order to make SkillPages a platform that is useful for many millions of people around the world.
We’re still only just getting started at SkillPages, all the team here would like to say a big thank you to our 5 million members and say again that we’ll continue to do everything we can to help you find the skilled people you need, and discover new opportunities for your skills.
Onwards and Upwards!
