Babajob.com is a Bangalore-based startup that uses the web and mobile technology to connect employers and bottom-of-the-pyramid (BOP) informal sector workers (i.e. maids, cooks, drivers, etc.) with the goal of creating a scalable, replicable and profitable solution to combat poverty. Babajob aims to do this by creating greater market efficiency in the informal sector through voice and web features such as SMS, automated voice systems, and operator manned call centers, enabling employers and job seekers to find each other.
This business idea is the brainchild of Sean Blagsvedt, 3rd founding member of the Microsoft Research India. The value that Babajob offers to both its employers and job seekers is in its ability to provide access to critical job and job seeker information through various technology platforms. By leveraging web and mobile technology, BabaJob is able to scale and engage a wider audience creating greater efficiency for employers and having a social impact on job seekers.
