Company Details


Emprego Ligado is a mobile-based jobs platform focusing on the massive "blue-collar" worker segment in Brazil.

With Emprego Ligado job seekers can create profiles, apply for jobs and schedule interviews entirely through their mobile phones, at zero cost. Companies looking to hire unskilled or semi-skilled workers for administrative, telemarketing and similar jobs can organize the hiring process through their SaaS portal.

Emprego Ligado identifies matching candidates who live within a few kilometers of a job and allows the employer to interact directly with the candidate on his/her phone, thereby reducing both time-and-cost-to-hire and worker turnover.

Emprego Ligado is funded by Silicon Valley and Brazil-based VCs.
