Jobley, whose parent company MEDLEY, operates the #1 healthcare job search site in Japan has chosen to locate in Bellevue, WA. It is a career marketplace for medical professionals to find their best fit jobs. The company currently focuses on nurses and dental professionals where employers control the hiring process by posting jobs free of charge, sending scout messages to candidates, and paying competitive fees only for successful hires.
“In 2023, we plan to initially invest more than $3 million and create 5 to 10 jobs in Bellevue,” said Yuta Tamaru, chief executive officer of Jobley. “Going forward, we are extremely optimistic for growth given that Greater Seattle is a top 10 life science cluster in the nation and continues to demonstrate a strong demand for talent. Our technology is a perfect solution for this ecosystem.”
Jobley is based on Japan’s most popular job board for medical professionals and has the competitive edge to reduce hiring costs. Spiking labor costs for nurses in the U.S., and the introduction of the Travel Nursing Agency Transparency Study Act, positions Jobley as a high demand solution for hospitals and care aide facilities.
“We are pleased to welcome Jobley to the region alongside our international ecosystem of innovative companies consisting of more than 470 Japanese-owned firms in Greater Seattle and almost 700 statewide,” said Josh Davis, vice president of global trade and investment. “We partnered with Jobley through our 2023 SelectUSA Spinoff program, which we launched in 2022 right before our International Leadership Mission to Japan to strengthen our ties with this strategically important investment and trade partner.”
“Jobley aligns very well with Bellevue’s growing health tech cluster and our goal to improve the talent pipeline for both employers and employees,” said Jesse Canedo, chief economic development officer, City of Bellevue. “We look forward to seeing them grow and succeed in our international, innovative ecosystem.”
