St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) July 20, 2015
When I Work, an employee scheduling and time clock app used by over 30,000 businesses around the world has secured an additional $5M from their current group of investors in an effort to expand operations, accelerate hiring, and continue to help businesses of all sizes save time and be more successful.
The second round of funding from the current group of When I Work investors, e.ventures, Greycroft Partners, and Arthur Ventures, will allow the company to double-down on their success as the market leader helping small businesses at an unprecedented scale.
"We couldn't be more excited to continue supporting When I Work," said Tom Gieselmann, Partner at e.ventures. "By making scheduling easier and faster, reducing transaction costs, empowering employees, and utilizing mobile technology, When I Work has quickly climbed to the top of the list of companies working to revolutionize the way people run and operate their businesses."
The new round of funding will also allow When I Work to further expand their channel strategy by developing relationships with new partners, as well as introducing new, enterprise-grade support for larger businesses.
“We’ve always been committed to creating transformative, simple products that help hourly employees and managers work better together,” said Chad Halvorson, Founder and CEO of When I Work. “This new round of funding will be instrumental in helping us continue our unprecedented growth, add new members to our team, improve our products, and make work better for hundreds of thousands of businesses—small and large—around the world.”
When I Work is also announcing an acquisition of Shifthub assets. Shifthub is a Toronto-based company that also operates in the workforce management / employee scheduling space.
The arrangement with Shifthub will help When I Work expand their presence and advance their mission of helping every hourly worker in the world when they’re on the job, off the job, or between jobs.
“I’m personally thrilled to see this relationship move forward,” said Jeremy Potvin, Founder and CEO of Shifthub. “I’m really looking forward to giving our customers the opportunity to continue to succeed as a result of this transition.”
Over the next 12 months, When I Work will seek to double the size of its entire team through open positions in the areas of development, marketing, customer care, sales, engineering, and product design. To learn more and to apply, visit the When I Work Careers page.
