The Hamburg-based meta search engine, Joblift, has raised EUR 10 million in capital, the company told Hamburg News Friday (December 15, 2017). Jobslift’s investors Cherry Ventures, Btov and TruVenturo were reportedly set to reinvest as well as London-based risk capital providers DN Capital and Picus Capital, and Alexander Samwer- co-founder of Rocket, according to Gruenderszene.de.
Joblift presently employs 50 staff in Hamburg and Berlin. When the company launched in 2015, the founders Lukas Erlebach and Malte Widenka raised EUR 2 million in seed financing for the company called Everyjob at the time.

Widenka was formerly Chief Technical Officer at Frontline and had a similar position at ProSiebenSat.1’s subsidiary wer-weiss-was.
