Jon’s maker story 🎒

“I built TeamGreet to make team birthday celebrations a lot more special for remote teams. Celebrating a work birthday when your team are working from home, remotely, or in different time zones is pretty much impossible. In the office you could pass a birthday card around to sign but that’s over for a lot of people now. I’d heard of teams writing messages in a shared Word document which is sweet but also a bit… meh. So I built TeamGreet!

I know I’m not the first site to offer something like this but the other services I looked at were too complicated for non-technical people or really clunky and slow, or just didn’t work on mobile. I’ve tried to build TeamGreet so it’s really easy to use, super friendly to sign cards and with great customer support. So far our users love it 🀞🏼.

As for some of the obstacles along the way, I didn’t have a baby when I started! When she arrived I thought I could probably continue dev in between looking after her. I was so wrong! Babies are terrible coding assistants. So I dropped all development for a long time but was itching to finish it. I think I got my priorities right on that πŸ™‚

Tim’s maker story 🎒

“Tim here. As the co-founder of Permworks, I have a personal mission to connect talented professionals from developing countries with job opportunities across the world. This mission is rooted in my own experiences growing up with parents from a developing country, where I saw firsthand the struggles that people face when it comes to finding work that pays well and provides opportunities for growth. But I also saw the incredible talent and potential that exists in these communities, and I knew that with the right support and resources, these individuals could achieve great things.

I personally meet with job seekers to understand their pain points and help them develop strategies to overcome them. Whether it’s providing feedback on their resume or cover letter, or coaching them through a mock interview, I am committed to helping our users put their best foot forward and stand out to potential employers. Ultimately, our goal is to create a positive, supportive community that empowers our users to succeed in their job search and build successful, fulfilling careers and that’s why I am committed to going above and beyond to support our users, every step of the way.

Building a startup is never easy, and at Permworks, we’ve faced our fair share of challenges along the way. One of the biggest struggles we’ve encountered is building trust with our users and gaining traction in a crowded and competitive market. As a new player in the jobs board space, it can be difficult to convince employers and job seekers to use our platform over more established competitors. We’ve had to work hard to build our brand, establish our credibility, and create a platform that provides real value to our users.

Another challenge we’ve faced is navigating the complexities of operating in a global market. With users and clients from all over the world, we’ve had to navigate differences in culture, language, and regulatory environments to ensure that we’re providing a seamless and effective service to everyone.

Despite these challenges, we remain committed to our mission of connecting employers with top Filipino talent, and we’re constantly working to improve and grow our platform to better serve our users. We’re excited to continue building Permworks into the premier platform for finding and hiring top talent from the Philippines and beyond.”
