Pintarnya, a Jakarta-based digital platform that helps blue-collar workers find employment opportunities, announced the closing of its seed funding round on Tuesday after securing $8 million from East Ventures and Vertex Ventures Southeast Asia and India.

The recent funding brings Pintarnya’s total seed round to $14.3 million — among the largest seed rounds in Southeast Asia to date— as the startup secured $6.3 million from Sequoia Capital India and General Catalyst earlier this year, which included a $100,000 grant from Sequoia Spark.
