JobHopin, a startup that wants to make job hunting in Southeast Asia easier, raises $  2.45 million Series AJobHopin, a Vietnam-based startup building an automated job-recruitment platform for Southeast Asia, announced today that it has closed a $ 2.45 million Series A. This brings JobHopin’s total raised so far to more than $ 3 million, from investors including SEMA Translink, KK Fund, Mynavi Corporation, Edulab Capital Partners, NKC Asia and Canaan Capital. Founded in 2017 by CEO Kevin Tung Nguyen, JobHopin’s matching platform, called Bunny, uses machine learning to pair candidates with jobs.
