Dayak Launches Marketplace For Contract, Temp Jobs
Carlsbad-based Dayak, a VC-funded online site focused on recruiting, said recently that it has launched a new marketplace focused on temporary and contract labor. According to Dayak, the new marketplace comes as companies are starting to look more than temporary and contract workers, in response to the "economic meltdown." Dayak allows staffing firms to post temp and contract openings to its new marketplace, allowing independent recruiters to help fill those positions. Allan Sabol, the firm's CEO, said the new marketplace is a "key advantage" for staffing firms to fill client jobs more quickly or to improve fill rates. The new staffing marketplace is an expansion of the firm's existing service for matching employers with recruiters. Dayak is venture backed by First Round Capital, NextStage Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, and the Tech Coast Angels.
