Hi! Welcome to SoWork, where our Mission is to move work from the Earth to the Cloud. We are a super tight-knit team, originally founded and incubated at Harvard, but we’ve since gone global (of course!). We now span plenty of continents and countries, and are so darn excited to be building The Workplace Metaverse - the place where great teams ❤️ to work.
Nearly two decades ago, a group of our teammates met playing World of Warcraft, and it completely changed the way we looked at teamwork, collaboration, and what was possible using social time online. Even though we were on three different continents at the time, we built real relationships, pwned Alliance noobs together, and became best friends. Now, we’re out to build a massively multiplayer, social, online workplace (hence S-o-Work!) to power the new world of work.
As you’re undoubtedly aware, the shift to remote and distributed work has unveiled some serious problems in communication, teamwork, culture-building, productivity, and collaboration, on even the best teams. Perhaps surprisingly, many of these problems mirror issues that gamers have solved in order to work and bond together online for gaming (particularly in MMO-land). So, we’re out to apply proven gaming principles to the business world to make remote, distributed, and hybrid work wonderful. The winners at the end of it all will be all of us people, as well as our planet.
What we care about
Helping work be awesome
People spend 80% of their lives working, and that time should be as delightful as possible. We built SoWork to help people smile, make friends, and feel good while working.
Helping people live flexible lives
We think that people deserve to live the lives they want to. So we’re on a mission to unlock as many people as possible to work from anywhere.
Our only planet: Earth! 🌎
The more we can help online and remote work be great, the fewer miles of commuting, cars, parking lots, and downtown cores there have to be. That’s good for the planet.
