Match.com owner acquires travel nurse jobs website NurseFly

August 20, 2019

NurseFly, a travel nurse staffing website that connects nurses with staffing firms, announced today it was acquired by IAC, the owner of Match.com, as well as other websites including human cloud platforms Handy, Angie’s List and Bluecrew.

San Francisco-based NurseFly, founded in 2017, is a two-sided platform. One side aggregates an index of travel nursing jobs and enables nurses to post reviews of healthcare staffing agencies. The other side, serving the healthcare staffing agencies, enables the firms to recruit and chat with nurses. The platform is free for nurses, while staffing firms pay a subscription fee to access the candidates.

NurseFly says it has 10% of travel agencies in the US on its platform.

“Until now, travel nursing has been an entirely offline and deliberately opaque industry where sometimes the only way to discover your next assignment is to wait by the phone,” said Parth Bhakta, co-founder and CEO of NurseFly. “Figuring out what that contract pays is also a grueling process — much like consumer travel in the 1990s.”

Bhakta will continue to lead NurseFly along with Eric Conner, co-founder and CTO. In addition, Adam Roston will assume the role of chairman at NurseFly; Roston is also the CEO of Bluecrew.

Terms of the transaction were not announced.

IAC is based in New York, and operates a number of websites, including dating websites Match.com, Tinder and OKCupid; video website Vimeo; and human cloud, on-demand staffing platforms Handy, Angie’s List and Bluecrew.

“Like Bluecrew, Parth and team are transforming the hiring process for both job seekers and employers through the power of software, connecting more people with more work opportunities,” Roston said.
