Remotely core mission is to bridge the gap and empower individuals to pursue their development dreams regardless of geographical boundaries. We helped their founders upgrade this idea by designing an automatic tool with a visually appealing interface that is as useful for candidates as advantageous for companies.
“There is a global imbalance between supply and demand for software development.”
With that statement in mind, Pau Sabria, Jose de Cabo, Sebas Álvarez, and Pau Suris started ideating Remotely after selling Olapic to Monotype for $130M in 2016.
These founders had a clear goal: to make a user-friendly tool that became one of the most excellent and efficient platforms to connect software talent and startups. They started with an Airtable and Zapier where they inputted candidates and matched them with tech companies. An MVP they knew they had to upgrade to meet their objectives and expectations.
Keeping users’ time in mind
Since COVID hit the world, remote working has become commonplace. Borders have been blurred when it comes to hiring people from anywhere in the interconnected digital ecosystem. However, the process is not as straightforward and transparent as it might seem.
“Everyone from Z1 is not only excellent professionals but excellent people. They add value in each step, connecting with us in the goals we pursue at Remotely.”
Co-Founder of Remotely.
Taking their MVP as a base, we designed an automatic tool with a visually appealing interface that differentiates them from their competitors. We focused on functionality, making a neat platform that users find super easy to use.
Many platforms take up to ~40% of developers' earnings and don’t offer any infrastructure to grant them equity. Remotely wanted to make things differently, that’s why they knocked on our door.
A website that’s part of the core product
For Remotely to succeed, they needed not only a web app but a website worthy of their product. We crafted a beautiful site on Webflow with a clear navigation targeting companies and software developers, with all the information both parties need and from where they can access the platform smoothly.
Values aligned with a bright future
Remotely’s founders claim they “are proud to be a part of a global network that transcends borders and celebrates diversity,” and so are we. While they are still defining a big part of their product offering, one thing is for sure: Thanks to an iterative and flexible design process, we defined an adaptative product that is not only what they need today but what they will need 1 or 2 years in the future.
