Bordeaux-based Allgoob closed a €1 million round last year with French investment firm Newfund. The funding was to help the search engine publisher expand in Europe and to launch classifieds search engine Wipikit.

Today, Allgoob is announcing the launch of its job search engine, Jobijoba, in Germany. With roughly 3 million monthly unique visitors, Jobijoba is already present in 6 countries – including France, Spain, Belgium, the UK, the US and Australia. The new German site already counts over 245K job offers, thanks to partnerships with job sites like Experteer and Stepstone. Plus, the team has announced that it’s hoping to have some 1 million job offers on this new site by next June.

Ah but even if Allgoob founders Thomas Allaire and François Goube (see where the name “Allgoob” comes from?) are planning to continue expanding Jobijoba internationally into countries like Switzerland and Turkey, Simplyhired is currently covering 16 additional countries. Simplyhired, who started its international expansion in 2008, most recently made its way to Russia in December and Sweden just last week. Still, Simplyhired’s Germany site is only slightly ahead of Jobijoba’s newly-launched German site, with roughly 75K more jobs. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see who hits 1 million job offers first…
