Masterbranch, a platform for employers who are looking for developers for open positions and projects at their companies, recently closed a new round of financing (Update – January 2023: The startup seems to be no longer in business and we therefore deactivated the link). The €470k of capital, which is Masterbranch’s second financing round, comes from NEOTEC and several Spanish business angels.
The Barcelona-based startup was founded in 2010 by Juan Luis Belmonte and Ignacio Andreu Dolset. On Masterbranch, developers can create their profile, which is automatically updated through their open source activity, and employers can find candidates for available positions by looking at the coding skills of each developer. Right now Masterbranch has about 6,500 active developers using on its platform. The fresh capital will be used to improve the functionality of the marketplace and to grow its user base further.
At the moment registration for both employers and developers is completely free. Masterbranch will charge for some features on the employer-side, and monthly job posts in the near future. The full pricing plans will be released soon.
