Seattle, WA, November 15, 2018 – Shyft Technologies announces today that the company has raised $6.5M in Series A funding, as it continues its mission to improve the lives of millions of shift workers worldwide. Shyft’s app helps retail and service workers swap shifts, message each other, and earn more money by picking up shifts that might otherwise go unstaffed. Shyft’s additional suite of workforce management tools transform how employee scheduling and related tasks are managed. This new capital will be used to further the company’s focus on product development and innovation. The recent funding round, led by Ignition Partners and Madrona Venture Group, brings the company’s total funding to $8M. Bob Kelly, Managing Partner of Ignition Partners, and S. Somasegar, Managing Director of Madrona Venture Group, will join Shyft’s Board of Directors as part of this round.
