Bringing you technology inspired conversations with practitioners and vendors in the recruiting technology arena.

May 17, 2020

Remote, an HR technology startup enabling simplified global employment, recently announced a Seed investment of $11M. The fundraising round was led by Two Sigma Ventures, with participation from several other investors. The financing will be used to expand Remote’s onboarding platform and extend coverage to forty new markets by the end of 2020, including Canada, Germany, the United States, and France.

Remote handles payroll, benefits, compliance, and taxes all in one single solution across international markets. With remote work only increasing, hiring a contractor or a full-time employee in another country is simplified with Remote’s platform.

Joining me today to discuss the new world of remote hiring is CEO and co-founder Job van der Voort.
