Airwrk is an early-stage startup that connects Bangladeshi tech talents with full-time remote jobs from all over the world. The invite-only tech talent marketplace has a strict vetting process that only allows top talents to become its member.
Co-founders of Airwrk, Rashedul Kabir and Sayem Faruk, have a vision to build this platform as an end-to-end remote team setup and management solution to the increasing number of international startups going remote, reads the release.
It intends to provide startups with not only a pool of pre-vetted candidates for hiring but also payroll and benefits management, co-working space rentals, remote team management SaaS tools, in short, everything a startup needs to successfully set up a remote team in Bangladesh and make its employees feel like they're an integral part of the team.
Airwrk intends to brew a community of remote workers and pledges to upskill the next generation of tech talents in Bangladesh.
"Talent knows no boundaries - that's the motto of Airwrk," said Sayem Faruk, founder & CEO of Remotely Technologies, the parent company of Airwrk.
Previously, Airwrk won DataBird LaunchPad 2021 and is also a part of GrameenPhone Accelerator's 7th Batch. The startup has already placed two talents in the US and is currently raising its pre-seed round to scale up operations.
