Babajob.com believes that in an emerging country, such as India, informal jobs are one of the main ways for people to escape from poverty. Additionally, the quantity and quality of jobs being created is also of high importance. An increase in income allows a man to increase his consumption of basic goods and services, thereby increasing his standard of living. This, in the long-run, aids in propelling a nation from an emerging economy into a developed/ing nation. At Babajob.com we are in pursuit of employment creation. Development of a nation cannot take place without the basic necessity of providing quality jobs for its citizens. In this dynamic digital age Babajob.com is posed to leverage its platform to benefit the (Indian) common man.
Most recently Babajob.com secured a $10 million minority investment from SEEK Limited (ASX: SEK) and its affiliate companies. SEEK is the largest online labor/employment provider in the world with an extensive presence in numerous emerging markets including; China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, South Africa, Kenya, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore. SEEK funding is presently being employed to expand the Babajob team and increase brand presence throughout India. This is the second round of funding for Babajob.com after a Series A round led by Gray Ghost Ventures and Khosla Impact in 2012, and a USAID-DIV (Development Innovation Ventures) Award, earned in 2013.

Why the term "Baba"
Baba is an honorific Hindi term used for father, wise man, an elderly man who takes care of us, or simply someone who gives us sound advice. It is often used as an expression of respect and also used as a colloquial term for an unskilled worker. It is commonly applied towards older men who carry out jobs that very often may seem mundane or undemanding. Very often these positions in society are without recognition. We here at Babajob.com value the services of these men (and women) and look to raise the bar for the Indian common man in society. Babajob.com is simply a platform for these men and women.
