Online staffing firm Wonolo announces $13 million funding round

April 18, 2018

Online staffing firm Wonolo announced today that it closed a $13 million series B funding round led by Sequoia Capital. The deal brings Wonolo’s total funding to $25 million. Sequoia Capital partner Jess Lee is joining Wonolo’s board as part of the latest deal.

Wonolo operates in the just-in-time space, enabling clients to use an online marketplace to bring in hourly workers to physical locations. Wonolo workers, known as Wonoloers, take on jobs that include making deliveries, stocking shelves, shipping packages and staffing events.

“When we started Wonolo as a project out of The Coca-Cola Company, our goal was to create a way for people to find extra work, while also addressing one of the major inefficiencies in the labor market for companies across industries,” said Yong Kim, CEO and co-founder at Wonolo. “Just four years later, our customers and team have built a thriving marketplace that has helped tens of thousands of people find hourly work, while also helping companies meet the product and services needs of their customers.”

Wonolo stands for “Work. Now. Locally.” The company is based in San Francisco.
