What: Next Station is a platform that connects international job candidates and companies. The company's technology enables more than 30 recruiting experts to work in tandem to accelerate job matching.
Why: While candidates have a hard time spotting international job opportunities, recruiters and HR teams find it difficult for their job opening notices to be discovered by the right talent. As remote work opportunities increase, particularly during the pandemic, companies are casting a wider net for workers while those same potential employees are conducting more geographically diverse job searches. The result is wasted time and resources on both sides.
Who: Co-founders are Blanca Montero (ex-BCG), Nicolas Paulus (former CTO of Antadis e-commerce web-agency), and Denis Fayolle (a serial co-creator of startups who co-founder of La Fourchette which was acquired by TripAdvisor for $150M as well as Zensoon, Habiteo, Manawa, Singulart, Farmitoo, and Sensaterra.)
Seed Round: €1.5 million
Investors: Cabiedes and Partners, and Fayolle.
What's Next: The Paris-based company will use the funding to expand in 7 markets: France, Spain, Germany, Austria, UK, Portugal, and the Netherlands. The company is hiring.
