"Love a little online shopping on your mobile but get sick of filling out the forms? Typos, big thumbs, way too many details to type out? Fillr is your new best friend!"
My best mate and business partner Chad and I sold our previous startup, 1Form, to Australia’s largest real estate group in 2013 and we immediately set out to build our next vision. Whilst our first venture (1Form) was a huge success it certainly didn’t start that way… sleepless nights and not knowing how you would put food on the table was par for the course for many years. But after pounding the pavement enough, it started to grow and grow fast. It got to the point where we no longer had to knock on doors; rather our door would be the one getting knocked on.
Last week we launched a public beta of Fillr, the next–generation autofill that helps you shop faster on your mobile. Since then, usage has boomed — together, you’ve filled out 1000's of forms across the web from your iPhone, cutting down what would have been of 33 hours of form filling collectively, into just 330 minutes.
Fillr is a growing startup building a productivity app business currently with thousands of users, looking for the brightest talent to join the team. We are based right in the middle of cosmopolitan Prahran where the coffee and lunch options are plentiful. Our office is light and airy and you'll find engineers, designers, sales and of course company directors all working tightly together and having a bit of fun while they're at it.
Nearly two years ago, my best mate and business partner Chad and I started off on a journey that's resulted in countless stress filled days and sleepless nights! Why? Well we wanted to build something that would eradicate the need for you to ever have to repeat filling out your personal information online ever again. I mean we all hate filling stuff out, and doing this on your mobile takes that frustration to a whole new level.
Working at a startup usually requires a keen eye on the future. Keeping an eye on the road to success, knowing which milestones to check off is necessary. But that requires experience. It is quite possible for any group of motivated people to make a mistake but the real challenge comes in not repeating it. And that is where the agile concept of retrospectives come in.
