Jobop, Moroccan Tech-Enabled Temporarily Staffing Platform Receives $1M Seed Round for Expansion

Jobop, a Moroccan tech-enabled on-demand temporary staffing startup, announced that it had received $1 million in an Azur Innovation Fund-led Seed funding round, with participation from Plug and Play and other angels. The round is said to have been closed since April this year.

Adil Zghaoui and Salim El Merrassi co-founded Jobop in 2020 to improve the employment of temporary workers by connecting them with leading companies.

Jobop leverages AI technologies and its proprietary algorithm in sectors such as hospitality, construction, logistics, and manufacturing to connect the blue-collar perspectives to these companies.

Jobop plans expansion into Egypt by the end of this year and claims growth of over 80% every quarter. In a statement, “We’ve seen a phenomenal market response since our launch in 2021However, the economic uncertainty surrounding Covid has forced many companies to turn to temporary workers. As a result, Jobop has been simplifying and accelerating their experience finding qualified and vetted workers”.

The Casablanca-based startup will use the funds to improve its tech product further and expand to new markets.

In the MENA region, the SaaS space has witnessed more than 100% YoY growth in VC funding in Q1 of this year. Investments across the industry have been piping in to support AI, automation, and data analytics. It was significant funding rounds backing the likes of MENA’s AI-powered Mozn that boosted the sector’s valuation.

Adnane Filali, General Partner at Azur Innovation Fund, expressed his excitement in the round, “We are thrilled to invest in Jobop and support them in their ambition of becoming the leading temp staffing company in Africa. They are building a robust business and will have an important social impact by providing jobs to thousands of Africans.”
