everjobs sreenshot

Rocket Internet Group, the German incubator that states becoming the largest internet platform outside USA and China as their mission, has launched Everjobs-an online job marketplace in Dhaka recently. With Everjobs, this German Incubator has now six startups up and running in Dhaka. The startup launched on 1st June, 2015 has a clean website with a mobile first strategy. In a statement Gijs Verheijke Managing Director of Everjobs Bangladesh said the obvious, Bangladesh has immense growth potential and Everjobs wants to be part of it. The startups reported that it has already 1000 employers posting jobs in it and 2000 jobs.

The local giant BDjobs has been the leading online job marketplace in Bangladesh and it owns a significant market share. In last couple of years we have seen job marketplaces to come and go and none could come close to BDjobs in-terms of achieving success. Everjobs with backup from Rocket Internet seems a formidable competitor for BDjobs.
