Danish freelancer-hiring platform Worksome has raised $13 million A round to accelerate growth in the United States and elsewhere.
Worksome allows companies to consolidate their entire global external workforce in one central platform, mapping their skills and capabilities, as well as allowing “one-click hiring” (shortening the time-to-hire hire from several weeks down to minutes), full worker classification, tax compliance and fast international and domestic payments.
Worksome said it has seen unprecedented growth since COVID catalysed a seismic shift in the way that we work. Since January 2020, the company’s revenue has grown 10x over.
Worksome said it was quickly gaining traction with large enterprise customers who have traditionally been managing their external workforce through legacy IT systems like Vendor Management Systems.
Worksome is a hybrid of the traditional Vendor Management System, Freelance Management System and Talent pool platform – thus challenging an established industry of brands including SAP Fieldglass and Beeline with plans of scaling to become a global leader within 5 years.
