While domestic big tech companies are also tightening their belts due to unstable global economic conditions and sluggish demand, it is said that the used trading platform ‘Carrot Market’ is still working hard to secure talent.
Carrot Market has been actively recruiting developers since last year with an unprecedented treatment of 65 million won in starting salary. This amount is comparable to that of representative domestic IT companies such as Naver, Kakao, and Coupang.
Carrot Market’s ‘respecting talent’ does not stop at the annual salary. Meals and snacks can먹튀검증 be paid with a corporate card, and conferences, seminars, and study expenses are supported, and some activities are recommended by the company.
The most famous benefit is the ‘unlimited autonomous vacation’ system that allows you to use your vacation as much as you like without limiting the number of days. It is said that even new employees can take days off at any time, depending on their condition or needs, without approval from their superiors. As a result, employees of the MZ
generation knocking on the carrot market recruitment door are constantly visiting. It also ranked first in the recruitment application rate of the job search platform ‘Wanted Lab’ (November 2020 -November 2021 , targeting companies with more than 50 job postings).
High labor cost, financial burden… loss higher than sales
However, as much as it guarantees unconventional treatment for its employees, labor costs are also high. According to the Financial Supervisory Service, the carrot market recorded an operating loss of 55.6 billion won last year, higher than sales (49.9 billion won).
The main reason for the deficit is labor cost. The amount spent on employee salaries was 32.4 billion won, an increase of about 2.5 times compared to the previous year. Welfare and welfare expenses also increased 2.6 times to KRW 5 billion. The number of employees increased 1.6 times from 238 at the end of 2021 to 380 at the end of last year.
However, it is comforting that the number of platform users is rapidly increasing through excellent services, and that the sales growth rate is also high accordingly. The cumulative number of subscribers was 32 million as of last year, an increase of more than 10 million in about a year. Sales nearly doubled from 25.7 billion won in 2021 to 49.9 billion won last year.
Despite the burden of high labor costs, Carrot Market is still actively recruiting. Currently, there are a total of 55 job postings posted on the official website, including Carrot Market and Carrot Pay.
