Story

andcards was founded by Igor and Ross in Seoul, South Korea. Having worked at corporations, they believe that a workspace could be a happier place. Coworking spaces, the recent flexible form of workspace, thrive on creativity and awesome services that contribute to a happier workspace experience. Working at a coworking space, Igor & Ross discovered that coworking spaces are in abundance of creativity but lack in technology, and embarked on a journey to bridge that gap β€” make coworking spaces easier to discover and use, therefore improving member experience and happiness.

andcards is a coworking space software focused on members. It is available for all popular platforms.

What makes us different

Member Focus β€” our priority is making coworking space accessible and convenient for coworking space members. We build and evolve our product around the user experience of end users. The key priority is the ease of use, intuitiveness and simplicity of discovering and getting workspace services.

One App β€” on andcards, coworking space managers use the same app as members. This gives administrators the same great user experience and the convenience of mobility. andcards helps coworking space managers be more efficient and maintain a deep understanding of member experience.

Top-notch Support β€” we're obscessed with our customers. Ask any coworking space and they'll tell you they had never experienced such a level of customer appreciation and support before with any other service.

Welfare

Everybody wants to improve wellbeing, to grow professionally and to realize personal goals. At the same time, we should be mindful of our company's health and growth. Personal welfare should be balanced with team achievements, and reflect the company situation. To promote transparency and honesty inside andcards, and to outline your benefits, welfare and future opportunities, we designed this employee compensation system.

Employment Contract

We care about you and want to give you stable employment with encouraging and reasonable compensation. After a test period, you will sign a 1-year contract. Think of the contract between andcards and you as a win-win partnership in which you together with other team members put all energy towards achieving company goals, and receive a portion of company wealth in return.

Stock Options

The benefits of working with andcards do not stop at your monthly compensation. We want to share with you the company itself. If you want to participate in ESOP ("Employee Share Ownership Plan"), you will get an option to purchase company stock at a fixed (and usually very low) price. Once our company increases its value, a few years later you can sell this stock with a huge profit margin. Reach out to Igor for information on shares outstanding and the most recent valuations.

Work/Life Balance

Unlimited Day Off

Maintaining a good work/life balance is essential to a happy life. We give unlimited days off allowances and encourage everyone to take time off. Yes, it’s truly unlimited and no questions asked. Taking some rest and refreshing minds helps to recharge batteries and come back to work more prepared than ever!

Unlimited Remote

We encourage you to work remotely from a coworking space. Every team member has unlimited remote hours. Make sure you have a reliable internet connection capable of a Google Meet video call and a distraction-free environment.

Anti-harassment

We are against all forms of harassment based on gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, race, social status, and any other factor. If you feel like you've been discriminated against or witnessed discrimination, contact Igor or Ross for assistance.

Your time is valuable. Your members deserve the best.
