ARLINGTON, Va., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Snagajob, America's largest marketplace for hourly work, named Jocelyn Mangan chief product and marketing officer. Bringing extensive experience in mobile and marketplace innovation to the company, Mangan will accelerate Snagajob's current product and industry strategy, while continuing to emphasize the company's core mission: supporting hourly job seekers and hourly employers with their most pressing needs.
Mangan has almost two decades of experience building iconic global mobile apps and market-leading software products. As the former senior vice president and head of product for OpenTable, she oversaw the vision, strategy, and development of the company's consumer and restaurant products. Prior to that, Jocelyn held senior roles at TicketMaster, where she successfully led the first multi-lingual, Olympic ticketing website from concept to implementation. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Mangan will also formally launch the company's West Coast expansion.
Mangan was recently honored as a member of the 2016 Class of Henry Crown Fellows and the Aspen Global Leadership Network at the Aspen Institute. Prior to that, Mangan was named to Fast Company's 2015 list of "100 Most Creative People in Business" and to Business Insider's 2014 list of the "32 Most Powerful Women in Mobile Advertising."
"I couldn't be more thrilled for Jocelyn to join the Snagajob team," said Peter Harrison, CEO of Snagajob. "Mobile technology offers the hourly industry a unique opportunity to completely reinvent the hiring experience from end-to-end: from finding a job, to hiring, to workforce collaboration and management. Jocelyn's experience and outlook aligns with our vision to collapse a process that often takes days or weeks into hours or even minutes, all from a mobile device. She brings an expertise in developing best-in-class mobile apps, an extensive consumer and business product background, and an unwavering passion for creating solutions that make a difference in the lives of the millions of people that use them. She will position us well to expand on our strategy and deliver our vision. I'm proud to welcome her to the team."
"I am truly honored and excited to join the passionate and talented team at Snagajob," said Mangan. "As the largest company focused exclusively on the hourly market and with the widest reach, Snagajob is best positioned to make a meaningful difference in the life of an hourly worker and those who employ them. They've outlined a compelling vision on a solid foundation and I am eager to build upon this to create experiences that both workers and employers love."
Today's announcement is the latest step in Snagajob's growing momentum. Earlier this year, the company secured $100 million in funding and announced a new strategic partnership with LinkedIn. Since 2013, Snagajob has nearly doubled its revenue derived from employers and more than doubled its mobile traffic, with over half a million applications being submitted via a mobile device every week. The company has also grown its own workforce by 30 percent since 2015.
