Elon Musk's Major Acquisition: Laskie - A Job Tool for Twitter
Visionary entrepreneur, Elon Musk, makes his mark with the acquisition of a job-matching technology startup called Laskie. This move marks Elon’s vision to make Twitter a revolutionary "super app" that has multiple functionalities.
The acquisition is quite important as this is the first of its kind since Elon bought Twitter for $44 billion in October.
So what is Laskie?
Laskie is a tech hiring platform, a people-first job-matching platform for candidates. It is a free B2C SaaS platform where hiring managers connect with candidates. The platform has innovative features such as Candidate Drop, Laskie Platform, and ReverseApply.
Laskie’s Blog says the platform is a powerful, data-driven tool to help you make better hiring decisions and improve your candidate experience.

Twitter’s Acquisition of Laskie
However, there is no official announcement; Bloomberg reported the news first to its readers. Founded in 2021 and headquartered in the heart of San Francisco, Laskie is a tech hiring platform that aims to make hiring easier.
Prior to its acquisition, Laskie served as a hiring platform that connects tech job seekers with employers. Laskie secured a funding round of $6 million in December 2021. Some of the investors that led the round of funding include Bloomberg Beta and Peak State Ventures.
It is currently unknown how Twitter plans to integrate the platform with its own system or it might let Laskie run as an independent company.
While Laskie's website currently displays the service as temporarily unavailable, a glimpse into their LinkedIn page shows a powerful tech hiring platform that streamlines traditional recruiting.
