In this episode of the Digital Workspace Works podcast, we welcome Jason Radisson, Founder and CEO of Movo, a platform that provides custom tools for the high-volume frontline workforce. With a background in entrepreneurship and extensive experience working with top-tier VCs, Jason shares his insights on the challenges of large-scale HR recruitment in frontline work and the need for efficient hiring and onboarding processes.
He emphasizes the importance of technology in removing hiring biases and the shift towards a digital record of employment history. As Jason puts it, “At least where the frontline is concerned, there’s really no reason that you shouldn’t have a digital file with your work history anymore. It shouldn’t be a piece of paper, self-reported, with a bunch of bullet points on it. It can be the digital record of your employment.”
Join us as we delve deeper into the world of frontline workforce recruitment and learn how Movo is helping to solve the global shortage of skilled frontline workers with its innovative approach. Listen in to gain insights that will help you navigate the challenges of workforce management and unleash the potential of your frontline employees.

Jason Radisson is the Founder and CEO of Movo, a real-time massive platform for frontline work. Jason learned startup skills early in life. He was born to a 16-year old single mom, and worked blue-collar jobs from short order cook to HVAC technician to fund school and climb out of poverty. From that inauspicious start, he went on to Harvard, a Fulbright Scholarship, and McKinsey & Company.
Since becoming an entrepreneur, Jason has worked with more than a dozen first tier VCs, firms like Softbank, Accel, DST, Andreessen Horowitz, Monashees, and Sequoia. Together he and his teams have built and scaled multiple tech unicorns, platforms that today provide work and improved living standards to millions of workers, from Bogota to Boston.
In the early days of Uber he was a launcher and Regional General Manager in the western US. From there, Brazil’s 99-Taxis as Chief Operating Officer, where he grew the business 10x and sold it to Didi for $1B. He is also a member of the Rappi-Mafia, where he was an early investor and helped the Co-Founders build their Operations and Growth teams in the initial expansion across Latin America.
