Joberate embraces a culture of innovation

The company’s co-founders, Michael Beygelman and Aki Kakko, met each other as a result of a client relationship. Michael was the Global RPO President of Pontoon Solutions (an Adecco Group brand for recruitment process outsourcing and managed service solutions), and Aki was a co-founder of Kiitos Oy, one of Pontoon’s local market partners in the Nordics and the Baltics.

 

After nearly 8 years at Pontoon, having built the RPO business as it’s first employee into the dominant RPO market leader, Michael was ready for a new challenge and joined up with Aki in the fall of 2013 to lay the foundation for what has become Joberate.

 

The founders agreed that most life events such as buying a house or a car, or going to college, or getting married or having children, have all been studied and better understood, while changing jobs — also an emotional life event — is something that society knows very little about. Michael and Aki’s collaboration gave birth to the most innovative HR technology platform in decades, and their unified mission is to help society better understand job seeking behaviors of the global workforce.
