TheLadders gets a Russian competitor

Upladder, a job site bearing a familiar name and solutions, announced today its debut in Russia.

The site, a product of Fast Lane Ventures Group, will cater exclusively to professionals in Russia earning over 100,000 Rubles per month.

But while it has many features in common with its US competitor, Upladder said it distinguishes itself from that other exclusive job board by publishing only premium vacancies and checking the job seekers’ resumes prior to posting.

Job seekers will also receive a professional resume evaluation and ideas for improvement.

“The project is based on a business model proven in international markets,” said Marina Treshchova, Director General of Fast Lane Ventures. “Upladder is similar to a number of major players of global online recruitment industry: American TheLadders and German Experteer.”

Fast Lane Ventures Group said it will initially invest over half a million US dollars in the site.

“We have hired the best possible team headed by Yana Kaplan, one of the pioneers among the young professionals who decided to get back to Russia and do world competitive business here,” Treshchova added.

Employers already posting on the site include Gazprom, UC Rusal, Luxoft, BBDO, Reso-Guarantee, VTB-Leasing, PwC, UniCredit Bank, Rosgosstrakh LLC, Vimpelcom, ProfMedia Business Solutions, IBS, Antal Russia, ROSNO Insurance Company, and JSC.

“Our main task is to create the opportunity for employers and skilled professionals to find each other quickly and effectively. To make the use of our resource not only effective but also comfortable, we were the first in Russia to introduce the Daxtra technology allowing synchronization with the jobseekers’ accounts on LinkedIn,” says Yana Kaplan, CEO of UPLADDER.
