The paid subscription app connects users directly with service providers

Entrepreneurs from Gujarat and Germany joined hands to make what is called a location-based job search and hiring platform. Jobs on Sight (JOS), an android and iOS app connects job seekers and job providers in the service functions in blue-collar and white-collar jobs.

The app, which comes with a paid subscription, lists service providers such as plumber, electricians, carpenters, drivers or masons for the service seekers. The seekers can filter their service requirement and select among the nearest available service provider on the map through GPS.

Similarly, the app also features mid- to senior-level managers and executives under the category of skilled services that will connect them with the recruiters, who would have not advertised the requirements on the job portals or appointments sections of newspapers.

“This is a cost-effective job search platform for employees and also employers. It also removes the middlemen from the scene as the service seeker will directly get in contact with the service provider through in-app communication,” said Avinash Sondhi, founder and Managing Director, Jobs On Sight International Pvt Ltd.

How it works

The app has 25 categories covering over 20 industry sectors.

“Most often people start searching for references to get utility services done. This app enables users to find the service provider in their vicinity and get directly in contact with him,” said Guenter Stallecker, co-founder of the the company.

The duo opeated a law firm in Germany before starting the venture in Ahmedabad. Sondhi further maintained that currently the finances are arranged through the promoter equity, while on expansion, “if it is felt necessary, we will go for angel investors.”

Currently the app has over 1000 users within a month of its launch.

Sondhi further stated the app will soon be launched in the regional language to further make it easier for users to operate it.
