Instawork welcomes Jodee Kozlak to our Board of Directors

As the economy begins to slowly recover, more and more jobs are being created, to the point that there are now more open positions than there are available applicants. Amidst these unique market conditions, Instawork has been working harder than ever to connect local businesses with the skilled staff they need to successfully navigate the increased demand on their businesses. This, in turn, has resulted in a period of dramatic company growth. In less than a year, Instawork has raised $60 million in a Series C funding round, made an acquisition, and added four new members to our leadership team — and today, we’re proud to announce another: Jodee Kozlak, the newest member of our Board of Directors.
