Get to know us

The world of work is changing, at a higher speed than most businesses can adapt to. We’re here to change that. Our purpose is what drives us, our mission is what inspires us and our vision ultimately defines us.

Our purpose

Our purpose

To build something profound, innovative and disruptive, something that transcends above our company goals, profit or mission. Something that changes peoples’ lives for the better. Something that outlives and outlasts us, whose purpose is much grander than our own.

Our mission

Our mission

To enable businesses to rethink how they work, transforming their workforce to distributed, remote and flexible.

Our vision

Our vision

A world where distributed, remote and flexible working is the norm for all businesses around the world, where the distinctions and boundaries between contract, full time or part time employment break down and merge into one: a truly unified, fully distributed workforce.

Our Credo

Our team

Our team has been distributed from Day 1, when Sotiris, our CTO started writing the first lines of code from Dubai.

Since then we have built a team of engineers, designers, data scientists, marketeers, sales executives, and support staff across 8 different locations.

Being a distributed team means we can hire the best talent wherever they are. We are location agnostic. We work more efficiently and more productively with minimal noise and disruption. Plus, we get the time to develop some of our quirks, hobbies and passions that make us individual. We believe these idiosyncrasies make us who we are.

Here’s some of them:

Xenios Thrasyvoulou
Xenios Thrasyvoulou
Founder & CEO
Chief Grilling Officer & Part-time Artist

One of the early pioneers of the freelance economy, founding PeoplePerHour.com in 2007, which became one of the largest freelance marketplaces in Europe. On the rare occasion that Xenios is not hosting a BBQ for friends, or cooking, he spends his time indulging in his other passions which include painting, wine tasting, martial arts, or just unwinding in the countryside.

Sotiris Michalakos
Sotiris Michalakos
Co-Founder & CTO
Master of Code & Champion of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

One of the first hires at PeoplePerHour.com, Sotiris had over 12 years of experience working in the freelance economy before being transferred across to be CTO of TalentDesk.io. When he’s not coding or studying new technologies and crypto-currencies, Sotiris performs martial arts. We try not to piss him off.

Joshua March

Advisor
Planet Lover & Master of Puppy

An experienced entrepreneur who previously founded Conversocial, Joshua joined TalentDesk.io in 2020 as an advisor. Recently, he launched animal-free burger company Artemys (our Chief Grilling Officer was sold!). He loves board games and surfing, and has just adopted a puppy, so we’ve been inviting him to more of our Zoom calls.
