Well, there's really a "Tinder for" everything.

And in the career market, that is an iOS app called Switch, which lets users search anonymously for jobs through an algorithmic matching process and a UI that's very similar to Tinder.

@@Left swipe? Crappy job.
Right swipe? HIRE ME!@@

The company has announced Marker VC as its latest investor in a $2 Million Dollar seed round.

So when a user and a job are a mutual match, the user can then start a dialogue with various employers. It really is like Tinder... but without the dates... probably? ... hopefully?

The app shows 3 companies that you've worked for in the past (that's what the employer sees), and you can edit that.

If you're worried that your current employer might know that you want to quit because they see your profile - they're actually blocked from seeing your profile.

So Switch works with big companies like Facebook and Amazon, Wikipedia, Imgur, The New York Times... lots of big companies. And the company says that it's gathered 400,000 job applications and more than 2 million swipes so far.
