OJO Labs today announced plans to hire more than 120 employees in St. Lucia before the end of the year, marking the company’s ongoing commitment to a growing and lasting presence on the island.
Following rapid user growth, a funding round and the acquisition of Movoto, the fifth largest and fastest growing residential real estate search site in the United States, the company seeks to nearly double its team in St. Lucia.
Home purchases using OJO were up 130% in the first half of 2020 versus all of 2019. The company has also seen a record number of users and user activity levels during COVID-19, with activity frequency and user retention increasing each month.
The number of OJO users has grown 30% since the end of March as homebuyers increasingly turn to digital services to select and purchase their dream home. In addition, the company’s recent acquisition of Movoto brings nearly 24 million new leads, further accelerating growth.
“The team in St. Lucia is at the heart of recent momentum—it is their hard work, dedication, and commitment to OJO Labs’ customers and partners that has set the company up for exponential growth,” said John Berkowitz, CEO and Co-founder of OJO Labs.
