It was only a matter of time before the left-swipe-for-no, right-swipe-for-yes approach to screening personal profiles left the confines of dating apps and entered the corporate world. Enter Job Today -- an app already successful in Spain -- which connects small employers, especially in the retail and hospitality sectors, with potential hires over a mobile platform. 

Since the service rolled in April 2015, Job Today has signed up more than 20,000 businesses and processed more than 2 million job applications in Barcelona, Madrid, London and Paris. The Luxembourg-based startup will announce Thursday that it has secured $10 million in venture capital to fuel its continued expansion throughout Europe.
