Weave app brings Tinder-style swipes to job hunting

Tinder’s swipe-able interface is such a hit, that a lot of new apps are copying it. One new, notable app among them all is called Weave, which is essentially (there’s no other way to describe it) a more boring Tinder to find fellow professionals instead of Friday-night dates. In fact, it’s so promising that its developers have just raised $630,000 in seed funding. If you’re thinking, “But I already have LinkedIn!”, well, it works a bit differently from the more traditional social network. To use the iOS or Android app, you’ll need to log in using your LinkedIn credentials, after which it’ll pair you with professionals in your area. Just like in Tinder, just swipe left to pass, or right to initiate a chat or express interest in meeting up.

According to co-founder Brian Ma, the more you use Weave to engage with other users, the more you show up in other people’s streams. Obviously, if the app takes off, it’ll be great way to network with like-minded people or find potential local employers and employees.
