Cocoon is shutting down November 1st, 2017

In 2015 we started with Cocoon to change the way tech recruitment was done. Our goal was to make the whole experience more equal, more informal and especially more fun! The feedback from our users, people like you, was great. Most of you loved our take on recruitment and gave us great feedback on how to improve our app.

You sent us your stories of how you found an awesome job with Cocoon and some of you even moved countries to do so. These positive vibes were the perfect fuel for our team to continue working on Cocoon.

Unfortunately, this was not the only fuel we needed to build a sustainable company. In the past few months we did many experiments to see how we could turn Cocoon into a sustainable business but in the end we failed in doing so. If you want to know more about this, you can read the article our CEO Martijn wrote about why we've made this decision.

What will happen next?

On October 31st we will do the following:

Huge thanks to everyone who at some point was part of our team. It was incredibly cool and fun to work with such a diverse 🇳🇱 🇵🇱 🇱🇹 🇫🇷 🇲🇽 🇭🇰 🇺🇦 🇮🇹 (🍕) and talented lot.

And of course, thank you for using Cocoon. Good luck in your future careers! 👊
