Tempo is the latest job board to land some VC. $2.29 million to help them leverage video, job matching, and “automation” to connect candidates and employers. Currently focused on business support roles in the U.K., they reference a “city by city” approach to expansion. With the funding they expect to go after new markets (U.K. cities?) and invest in more tech.
