LOS ANGELES, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zoondy announces a new funding round using the Fundable.com platform to speed the adoption of the liquid workforce platform. By 2020 50% or more of the U.S. workforce are expected to be on-demand workers / contingent workers in the liquid workforce. Zoondy capitalizes on this paradigm shift by utilizing a commodity brokerage approach to create a marketplace for seasoned professionals to sell their skills and expertise in four unique ways: free, fixed price, auction and goal pricing. Zoondy provides a secure, structured market environment for buyers and sellers of professional high-skill expertise to transact for the knowledge, expertise and skills that they need on a short term or project basis.
While most associate freelance and on–demand workers with creative engagements, at best or un-skilled hourly gig workers, at worst, like Uber® drivers, Fivver or Upwork; Zoondy targets the 43 million seasoned professionals, retirees and work-from-home executives who have proven expertise that can be shared locally or globally with businesses both small and large.
For seasoned professionals, a Zoondy profile takes only minutes to set up and when completed the platform immediately begins marketing a user's skills. Conversely, companies can take a few minutes and post their current requirements and price caps and see the experts interested in the engagement.
In 2015, HR tech saw $2.4B in funding across 383 deals. The vast majority of investment in the HR Tech space has been to improve the efficiency for recruiters to manage and procure a large number of resumes for each open position. Zoondy abandons the inefficiency of the traditional job search in favor of a liquid workforce approach using Zoondy Rankings incorporating market based, quantitative and qualitative evaluations of each user to match them to the right opportunity.
Gordon Gooch, CEO and Founder of Zoondy, explains how reputation and actual bookings decide a Zoondy users rankings. "It's not what you say you can do, it's how you actually perform and what others will pay for it that matters. Resumes are out dated and inefficient. There are simply better ways to match expertise for consulting engagements or long-term projects without hiring a full time employee who will sit idle for most of the time."
Zoondy is excited to leverage the power of the Fundable platform to reach investors that understand a shift is coming in HR and job search technology in general and want to get ahead of it by embracing the liquid workforce approach and the future of work.
Gooch continues, "This new round of funding will allow us to educate a large number of highly skilled, seasoned business professionals who have not had an opportunity to embrace the liquid workforce revolution."
