The idea behind WFH Pad started after our founder saw a video interview of Mark Cuban reacting to the decision that the NBA has suspended the season because of Covid-19. In the interview, he was asked what his concerns are for his team and he answered that his concerns are about the people and country in general, the hourly wage workers who will lose their income.
We then put a feeler out in a couple of Facebook groups asking if people know of companies hiring for entry-level remote jobs. If there was enough interest, we would make the site. The next day, each post blew up with some receiving over 1,000 reactions and 500+ comments asking for the site.
That is when we made the decision to do our own jobs research and launch in two days. Three days later, we have 8,900 people visit the site.
To help people find opportunities that will allow them to work from home regardless of their educational background and location.
A world where everyone has the freedom to work online if they want to.
