For the past two years, work has become more remote and businesses have found themselves looking for talent worldwide.
A tech-enabled platform first launched in 2020, Wing Assistant has provided more than 1,000 small and medium businesses with a well-vetted, more affordable labor pool for recurring work. Jobs range from research, data entry and social media management to marketing assistance, sales assistance and executive assistance.
The company has raised $2.1 million in seed funding from Surface Ventures, Brookstone Venture Capital and UC Berkeley SkyDeck as well as angel investors.
As a literal ‘assistant for business,’ Wing’s platform is designed to find people to perform jobs rather than projects or freelance gigs. It connects business owners and busy professionals with a gamut of assistants from around the world, offering a very competitive price point for full- and part-time employees.
The Wing team is distributed globally and managers identify and select candidates in existing talent pools who will be the best fit for openings. Each client business is assigned a dedicated customer success manager and within a week, the client company is provided with the new hire.
The talent shortage last year reached 40 million workers worldwide and it is predicted to more than double by 2030.
Wing Assistant includes a mobile app and software platform that provides a comprehensive set of tools to help an employer work efficiently with a new remote employee, including:
- Communication (chat, video recordings, Slack integration)
- Quality assurance (AI algorithm will flag negative sentiments early)
- Task management (kanban board, task IDs, calendar, etc.)
- File management and task-related data storage
- Password management
