About Legion:

Legion is looking for world-class talent to help us with our mission of enabling the global 2.7 billion-person-strong hourly workforce. At Legion, we are redefining how companies manage and empower their hourly workforces with our modern AI-powered Workforce Management platform. We help companies maximize labor efficiency and employee engagement simultaneously. Our cloud-native platform accurately forecasts demand, computes precise labor needs, and schedules the right employees at the right times based on employee skills and preferences. The platform also provides healthy worker features for these uncertain times.

Legion WFM includes cutting-edge machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and the most intuitive interfaces to deliver over 10x return on investment. Legion was founded by Sanish Mondkar, the former Chief Product Officer at SAP, and it has many innovative customers, including Dollar General, Five Below, Panda Express, Cinemark, and Vail Resorts. Legion has been recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor, and it was recently included on JMP Securities’ Hot 100 List of the Best Privately Held Software Companies. Legion is a remote friendly organization with headquarters in Redwood City, California. It’s backed by leading venture firms, including Norwest Venture Partners, Stripes, First Round Capital, Webb Investment Network, Workday Ventures, NTT Docomo Ventures, and XYZ Ventures.

Background and Opportunity

The hourly workforce currently makes up almost 60% of the overall labor market in the United States. These 80 million hourly workers are the driving force behind many of our largest domestic industries, including food and beverage, retail, and hospitality. Workforce management has historically been difficult due to high churn (60% on average and high cost of replacement ($3,200 per employee in retail on average). Now new requirements are developing as generation Z enters this market. The retail vertical alone spends $62 billion a year on replacing workers, and over 50% of hourly workers leave their jobs because of flexibility reasons.

In our modern economy, hourly workers want gig-like flexibility, mobile-first technology, and compelling work options. They want to use a mobile phone app to schedule work, not haggle with their manager over schedule changes every week. Also, employers increasingly need a flexible and efficient labor model that supports retail innovations (think pop-up stores, home delivery, mobile ordering, and service options) that today’s modern customer needs and often demands. Mid-market organizations have never had a technology platform to manage their hourly workers, and enterprises are stuck with old legacy software (think Kronos and Infor) that’s ineffective for users and the companies managing today’s modern hourly workforce. There’s a huge opportunity to modernize and upgrade how hourly workers interact with their managers while enabling employers to be flexible, efficient, and innovative. But no one has cracked the code – until now. Enter Legion.
