HourlyNerd, a Boston startup that connects enterprises with the “nerds” they need on demand, announced today that it closed a $22 million investment.

The startup explained that its “proprietary matching algorithm can identify the right expert or boutique firm for a given need in minutes, allowing enterprises to react more nimbly and with far greater efficiency than alternatives.”

General Catalyst led the series C round for HourlyNerd, while Highland Capital Partners, GE Ventures,and Mark Cuban followed.

The capital will be used to refine HourlyNerd’s software “and to educate the market on the future of work and the need for flexible business talent,” the startup said.

HourlyNerd has raised at least $33 million to date.
