Management, Product, Mobile
Having worked in project management for years, Emmanuel knows full well everything hinges on time: how you use it, where it goes, why you never have enough. It is only natural, then, that his big business project is dedicated to creating an app that takes very little time away and gives a lot of it back.
Machine Learning, Architecture
Anis has a track record of solving problems through algorithms in his previous jobs at banks and analytics companies - but all too often he's been lacking time to work on important issues, and he knows many people who feel that way. So he decided to focus on giving everyone the tools to achieve their goals.
Communication, Marketing, Design
Anna's studies have made her an all-round communicator - she writes, talks and designs. She'd been working as a startup consultant before joining Smarter Time, so she knows how hard it is to juggle various projects in different fields while keeping track of time and managing to set some aside.
