FintekNews VC Deal of the Day – Untapt Raises $2M

We are especially pleased with our current relationship with financial employment website – OneWire – but we learned today of a new fintech technology jobs site that recently raised $2M in funding, so we thought we’d check it out and feature it as our FintekNews VC Deal of th Day. 

According to a recent press release, “Using artificial intelligence, untapt is creating powerful digital hiring platforms and tech talent marketplaces that match precisely the needs and wants of technologists and employers.”

The initial set up into the site is pretty easy.  It uploads your profile from Linkedin and a resume’ if you have one, and then it asks a series of quick questions, and then VOILA! – you are  matched with potential jobs.  Thing is, they are all TECH jobs – nothing marketing or sales, so it ended up showing me all engineering and developer jobs.  Now, I’m OKAY with technology on the basic web side of the occasion, and of course we WRITE about financial technology all day long, but I’ve NEVER been on the IT side of ANY business, so their supposed Artificial Intelligence fell a little flat for the likes of me.

Still, if financial IT is your area of expertise, you’ll most certainly find job pairings on this site. 

According to the firm, investors in this round included Cris Conde, Walter Barandiarán, WorldQuant Ventures, Bluff Point Associates, Mathers Associates, Sand Hill East and additional private investors, along with existing investors SenaHill Partners and Tsai Capital.
