Snagajob rebrands as Snag
- April 3, 2018
Arlington-based Snagajob, an online hourly work platform, has rebranded with a new name, Snag.
Since its launch in Richmond in 2000, Snagajob has grown beyond jobs. The company acquired PeopleMatter in 2016 and established itself as an “end-to-end platform” for hourly work. Key elements of the rebranding include a new logo, updated website and apps.
Snag, however, said it purpose remains the same – bringing workers and employers together with the solutions they need to find and share work.
Company officials said it provides employers with an all-in-one solution for hiring and managing hourly teams.
“Almost 60 percent of the American workforce is hourly, and an overwhelming number of these consider themselves underemployed, meaning they aren’t getting enough work, hours or shifts to cover basic living expenses,” Peter Harrison, CEO of Snag, said in a statement. “Snag is committed to connecting people with work that best fits their talents and availability so they can maximize their potential and live more fulfilling lives.”
The company’s growth during the past year has included:
- More than 90 million registered hourly workers with an additional 1 million workers registering on the platform each month.
- More than 450,000 employer locations hire and manage teams on Snag’s platform,
- And more than 300,000 hires powered by the platform each month with nearly one in four jobs filled the same day.
Snag’s flexible work platform, Snag Work, was launched last year in Richmond, giving hourly workers the flexibility of the gig economy.
The on-demand platform connects workers with open shifts in restaurants, hotels, and retail storefronts.
On average, Snag Work fills 90 percent of shift requests, and 70 percent of shifts are filled in minutes. Thousands of shifts are worked on the Snag Work platform each month.
