Snagajob is a job search engine website. Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Richmond, Va., Snagajob has been named to both Fortune Magazine’s "Great Place to Work" Best Small & Medium Workplaces list and Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 every year beginning in 2010.[1]

History[edit]

Peter Harrison was named chief executive officer of Snagajob in April 2013 and sits on the company's Board of Directors.[2] Prior to Harrison, Snagajob was led by its founder and chairman of the board, Shawn Boyer. Boyer served as Snagajob’s CEO from the website's launch on October 17, 1999, to 2013; leading the company from a start-up to national employment network.[3] Boyer was named America's Small Business Person of the year in 2008 by the Small Business Administration.[4]

Snagajob is privately held, but has raised over $41 million from investors including Adams Street Partners, Baird Venture Partners, C&B Capital, and August Capital.[5][6]

In 2011, Snagajob was named the best small business to work for by the Great Place to Work Institute.[7][8][9] Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell visited Snagajob headquarters the day of the announcement to offer his congratulations.[10]
