Company Summary

mojoLive is a career management tool that counts everything about your career—not just where you worked or went to school. Users rate the value of Profile items and we use that data to generate a user's mojo Score: a gauge of career progress and marketability. Users are engaged through gamification features such as the earning of Caps (badges). Using our deep set of big data, we will make career suggestions, guiding users to better themselves.
