Bangkok-based startup GetLinks has just closed a $500K seed round, with money from 500 Startups and CyberAgent Ventures.
The startup, which mainly serves Southeast Asia, started off as a kind of “Tinder for jobs” and has now transitioned to a curated job platform that serves both employer and job candidate by providing high-quality jobs and employees. It has to do so, since GetLinks makes money mainly by taking a cut out of the employee’s salary.
GetLinks is unique in its focus in offline events, like meetups that attract thousands of attendees to raise awareness of its service to both employers and employees all around Southeast Asia. The startup has only been holding such events in Thailand, but it plans to have its first Vietnam meetup on March 12.
GetLink’s current employer partners include Google, Uber, and Lazada.
