Globus.ai, Norwegian data science, and AI company announced on Tuesday that it has secured $4.8M in a Seed funding round led by Alliance Venture and Scale Capital.
The funding will allow the Sandnes-based company to scale in existing markets and expand into the US. Part of the funding is also allocated to product development, claims the company.
Helge Bjorland, CEO & Co-founder at Globus.ai says, “Now, more than ever before, organisations need a way to quickly find the talent they need to fill business-critical roles — and individuals are seeking meaningful work that interests them. Our mission has always been to empower people to succeed in the future of work and, as such, our Scandinavian AI is well-positioned to support workers and organisations with today’s pressures. Globus allows companies, and specifically recruiters, to instantly connect their candidates with relevant opportunities.”
According to SIA, demand for temporary staff is expected to remain strong due to the ongoing impact of the Great Resignation, with temporary workers able to plug skill and productivity gaps while organisations hire permanent replacements.
AI staffing company
Founded by Helge Bjorland, Ivan A. Metrikin, Jan Kristiansen, and Tor-Hakon Hellebostad in 2017, Globus.ai is cloud-based, human-centric software that enables staffing agencies and recruiters to place more candidates faster.
The company’s software enables staffing agencies and recruiters to find and place people with relevant skills and competencies matching the needs of their clients.
The company claims, from requests to search, matching and booking, the whole process can be reduced to just seconds and enables customers to cover up to 40% more shifts.
Currently, Globus.ai’s staffing software has been used in various industries like healthcare, social care, education, local government, and the energy sector.
Arne H. Tonning, Partner at Alliance Venture says, “About a year ago, Globus had a handful of early adopters in Sweden and Norway. Since then the company has grown to more than 30 customers and 4x the product revenue run-rate, while also landing multiple significant customers in the UK market. The total team is more than 50 people in 20 countries, with a remote-first configuration with a strong and inclusive culture. We believe that Globus’ journey has just started. Based on the position, potential and execution, we are proud to join the Globus mission and hope to play our part in making it a great success for all stakeholders, including customers and talent.”
He adds, “The ambition is to play a leading role in the future of work, by applying AI to the search, matching, and booking of the top talent in any modern organisation with a hybrid workforce. Globus is confident that human-centric AI will ultimately understand people better and connect them with the right opportunities, fast. While the HR Tech landscape is crowded and heavily invested, Globus goes beyond existing product categories and could be a new category-defining company.”
