The competitive landscape for Gooroo

It’s easy to look at Gooroo as relative newcomer in the recruitment sector and assume that it’s just more of the same. But Gooroo is like nothing else in the HR tech market today.

Our advanced matching technology, along with our niche focus on the tech sector, provides us with a unique competitive advantage.

Why Gooroo is set to raise $5 million

After three years of product development, it’s time for Gooroo to hit the accelerator. Gooroo is focused on becoming a brand in a global marketplace and that requires capital: about $5 million at this stage.

We’ve invested upwards of $2 million building the platform, bringing us to the point of product completion. Now we’re entering into a new growth phase, raising money to expand our team, especially in the areas of sales and marketing - to get the Gooroo message out to market. Our aim is to expose as many organisations to our technology as possible.

Microsoft, LinkedIn and Gooroo

Gooroo's CEO: "Tech talent is the world's biggest niche"

A common question that we get at Gooroo is ‘why are we only focusing on technology talent?’ ‘Why not cast the net wide across a range of industries?’

Gooroo’s underlying technology and IP could easily be adapted to cover a range of industries. But we’ve decided to focus solely on the technology sector and that’s where our attention will remain for the time being. It’s something we’ve put a lot of thought into. Here’s why we made the decision to just focus on technology talent:

Our ambitious targets for 2016

It’s been a whirlwind ride for the Gooroo team as we’ve gone from startup to preparing for ASX listing in less than four years. And the pace isn’t set to slow down over the next 12 months. 

2016 has already been a big year for the Gooroo team. In January we entered a three-year global partnership with Microsoft, which goes a long way to validating our technology and business model. 

Some of the big targets we have for the next 12 months include ...
