Founded in 2003 with $1.2 million invested by its founders, SimplyHired is now a major player the job search market. Competing against companies such as Indeed, SimplyHired seeks to consolidate job listings from major and minor job sites such as Monster, Careerbuilder, the WSJ, Hotjobs and Craigslist. Jobs from these sites and others are categorized by their components (location, work experience, education, company size etc) for which users can search. Searches can be narrowed even more by specialty categories such as “fortune 500”, “Dog Friendly” and “GLBT”. There is even a section for mom friendly jobs. With earlier rumors of a possible Google acquisition, SimplyHired is filling a noticeable hole in search functionality.
