The French employment website Welcome to the Jungle raised €2 million euros from four anonymous business angels.
Welcome to the Jungle is a new kind of job site that aims to enhance the way it advertises employers in order to attract the best talent, especially among millennials (the average age of site users is 28 years). The startup, founded in 2015, sends editors and a production team to their clients, with the goal of creating a valuable profile for companies on the site. The startup publishes photos of the premises, portraits of managers and some employees, and a description of the working atmosphere. Welcome to the Jungle also prides itself on giving information that other websites don’t include, such as turnover rate and the percentage of men and women at the company. At the moment, 500 companies have a presence on the site.
Welcome to the Jungle plans to establish itself internationally by the end of 2017, focusing on four countries: Germany, the UK, Italy, and Spain.
