In the world where new application startups pop up like mushrooms every day, few manage to survive the competition.
This year, however, another startup aims to make a difference in the lives of thousands who struggle to make ends meet and need some extra, earned cash.
As the world’s nations face economic problems, ejob seeks to help resolve and reduce some of the financial difficulties with a unique and innovative twist that puts employers in touch with eager workers.
Ejob provides services allowing users either to post a job or apply for a job through the ejob Mobile App or the Web App.
Ejob is quite unique. It does not involve the assistance of any government or organization but relies on people to create small jobs where and when needed.
Specifically, ejob is a startup connecting people who have work and some capital to those who are willing to carry out tasks in return for pay.
A user, taskmaster, lists a job. A job hunter, tasker, responds to the task and executes it.
The jobs can vary from parcel delivery, online assignments, or household chores.
A job is represented by a pin on the map or is on a list, and a nearby individual may choose to apply for the job.
To log in, the tasker is then required to provide some personal and contact information to ejob.
Depending on the job requested, there may be different levels of security clearances involving third party verifications and police records, but once the job is delivered and confirmed by the taskmaster and tasker both, ejob deposits the payment directly into the tasker’s account after subtracting a 10 percent commission.
The idea for ejob appeared a year and a half ago, when Sajjad Yaghoubi felt the need for a parking space in the industrial and booming city of Tehran where parking is always a hassle. Yaghoubi always has a number of meetings across the city on a daily basis and finding a parking space while rushing to get to them is a mission impossible. Then, he thought, may be a venture like ejob could help, finding someone fast to secure a parking space.
He shared the idea with a friend, Majid Amini, and they decided to create an app that would generate tasks for people who have time to spare to work for those who are pressed for time. Then, Alireza Farahmand joined the team, and together they developed the idea further.
Today, the idea has become fact.
The well-developed ejob has an office not just in Tehran but in Istanbul, Dubai, Vancouver, London, and it envisions expansion across the world to create millions of jobs and serve millions of people.
It remains to be seen where ejob goes from here. From an idea over a meeting of a couple of friends to expanding to over 30 states worldwide, ejob could, with some luck and further effort, catch on and become a huge success.
