Our January's recruiting partner is DealDash, a Helsinki, Finland based startup. They operate a "gamified" shopping site that we've been covering recently. Back in October we covered their growth in quite a bit of detail, but we're very happy to report that this growth has further continued and seems to continue into the future. To fuel this, they of course require the best of talent that is out there.
Currently DealDash is looking for front-end developers. If you've got your doubts about the financials of this particular startup, you need not worry.
We talked to William Wolfram, the founder and CEO of the company and he's able to confirm that the company has closed a $1 million investment in the last days of December from David Friend, Spintop Ventures, Finnvera Venture Capital, Juha Halttunen and Teemu Aho. Things brings the company a fresh load of capital to further fuel the growth.
DealDash was also profitable during 2011 and is able to grow even further with its current cash reserve.
Wolfram has also hired Anssi Rusi, formerly a director at Basware (Nasdaq Helsinki listed company), to join the company as COO. Wolfram sees this as a part of a larger trend in the scene, "This is an increasingly interesting phenomenon taking place in Finland, experienced C-level execs from stable public companies deciding to leave their high paid stable jobs in pursuit of equity ownership and a mission to bring disruptive change to industries through startups."
If you'd want to work for a very cool, profitable, growing company and own the skills - apply to the job. But hurry, it's open for just a matter of days. However, they'll be coming out with new open jobs soon as well, so do keep watching our job board for more open positions at DealDash.
