Monster Worldwide has announced its acquisition of Jobr, a mobile job discovery app, in an official statement. The company stated that it intends to utilise the Jobr team and core assets to expand Monster's mobile capabilities and accelerate the development of its recruiting platform on mobile.

Single sign-on (SSO) is a session/user authentication process that permits a user to enter one name and password in order to access multiple applications. It believes that the "mobile-first approach to connecting jobs and people" of Jobr will enhance Monster's global talent platform for job search, people search and related solutions across mobile channels. The company will also work to extend the Jobr app to other markets in which it operates, through early 2017. Jobr stated in a blog post that the two companies had been working together for over a year. In an earlier post, it had claimed to have over a million open jobs on the platform, which candidates had swiped over 100 million times. Jobr uses a Tinder-like model, allowing job seekers to connect with or dismiss, job opportunities by swiping right or left on job postings and then apply to those jobs. For recruiters, Jobr also provides tools to manage and interact with applicants.…
