When I think of new generation working methods, the first thing that comes to my mind is “remote working”. When we say remote work, I first think of freelancers. Because these employees, which we call freelancers, are the first to show us the most important examples of remote working, which has become an indispensable part of companies with digital transformation. However, freelancing and companies doing business with these people can also have some difficulties. Recently with investment news coming to our agenda go to workaims to solve the problems experienced in this field.
An impartial platform that protects the rights of both parties
in 2020 Begum Karslioglu and Sun Gunay Jobtogo is an end-to-end platform that produces various solutions to facilitate the work of companies with freelancers, and leads them to adapt to changing ways of doing business by protecting the rights of both parties. One of jobtogo’s goals is to show the great benefit of the freelancer workforce in creating value for companies, while creating a living community that allows them to continuously improve themselves.

Income is generated with a commission fee taken from the matches made on the platform. This price includes the withholding tax paid on behalf of freelancers.
It started as a social responsibility project, then became a company.
jobotogo started as a social responsibility project in 2020, its goal at that time was to use freelancing as a tool for young people to overcome the experience barrier in their first job entry. Afterwards, the social responsibility project went beyond its borders and turned into a company by spin-off. After it became a company, both the brand name changed and a digital platform was created and the processes that had been done manually until then turned into an end-to-end platform. The platform was created by customizing a no-code structure according to the needs.
jobtogo has over 1000 freelancers in their talent pool
Currently there are more than 1000 freelancers in jobtogo’s talent pool and the company has had the chance to work with over 100 companies in Turkey. Jobtogo, who mostly works with SMEs and startups, says the areas that are most needed are creative/design and data entry. The market is growing, and according to the data of the World Economic Forum, the number of freelancers in the next 10 years will constitute half of the total workforce in the world. jobtogo team states that, regardless of generation, they observe that employees are shifting to freelancers with the power of remote working, and companies are increasingly choosing this method in order to have lighter and more dynamic structures.
Investment over 400 thousand dollars valuation
jobtogo launched its seed investment round last month. Based on a valuation of 400 thousand dollars completed. Angel Effect, Hüseyin Karslıoğlu, Ülkü Şengül, Uğur Mumay, Multikan A.Ş. and the investors, including Istem Özden Alpar from ARYA Investment Platform, support the company both in terms of mentoring and networking.
jobtogo, like every startup, wants to grow and expand its sphere of influence. Since there is no limit in the DNA of the work done, globalization is explained as one of its main goals. Being able to provide a solution to a company in a different continent from anywhere in the world is the company’s longest-term plan.
