For the past few years, we have been building NodeFlair to be a career advancement platform providing payslip-verified salary data and detailed career information for roles across all levels of seniority. The platform empowers global tech talents to make smarter career decisions, as well as allows international employers to hire the right people faster by connecting them with highly qualified professionals across Asia. We currently support companies of any scale, from startups to businesses like ByteDance, Dyson, Shopee, and more.
Asia is home to many strong technical talents, and we’re seeing rapidly growing interest from US and EU companies in setting up technology hubs here. We believe tech professionals and companies deserve greater access to reliable, accurate data and we are a win-win platform for both job seekers and employers in the fast-growing tech sector.
Founded in 2018, we have grown into a trusted, indispensable resource for tech talent in Asia. Our Tech Salary Report 2023, which includes analysis based on over 170,000 salary data points, received over 5,500 downloads, and was referenced by more than 50 publications in the first half of 2023. 90% of the platform’s 2 million annual visitors discover us organically through media coverage, search engines or word-of-mouth.
Hsu Ken Ooi, Managing Partner & Co-founder of Iterative said: "NodeFlair is transforming tech recruitment by bringing greater transparency and equality. Their role is essential in building towards a sustainable and impactful tech ecosystem that supports economic and societal development, and I'm proud to be part of NodeFlair’s journey."
Shingo Ishida, Partner and Head of APAC at PERSOL VENTURE PARTNERS commented: “The team at NodeFlair is building an innovative and valuable resource for talent recruitment. By combining NodeFlair’s data-driven platform with PERSOL’s expertise in talent acquisition, I’m confident our partnership will accelerate the growth of Asia’s tech industries.”
We aim to create a world where developers can code where they love, thrive in their careers wherever they are located, and be a part of a more informed and empowered workforce.
The new funding will be used to accelerate product development, expand into new markets across Southeast Asia, and grow the team. We aim to reach profitability by 2024.
