A news release and Silicon Valley Business Journal story clues us into the fact that job search vertical SimplyHired.com has raised $3 million from angel investors including Rajeev Motwani, and early investor/advisor to Google and Ron Conway, founder of Angel Investors LLC., also an early investor in both Google and Ask Jeeves. In addition to veteran angel investors, the round includes notable entrepreneurs Michael Tanne, founder of the Internet advertising company Adforce, James Hong, founder of top-50 Internet site HotOrNot.com.
Along with the funding news, we've learned that tech evangelist and investor, Guy Kawasaki, has joined the SimplyHired board of directors.
On the search front, SimplyHired launched an advanced search interface last week. One option allows the searcher to limit their search to companies that appear on various lists like the Fortune 500 and the Inc. 500.
