Welcome onboard StandByMate. Our journey takes you to a new world of ship crewing, where seafarers and shipping companies no longer have to waste time on maritime recruitment processes.
StandByMate finds available seafarers near a vessel and sends personalized sea job offers to suitable candidates. It’s a tool that does all manual work for you. Shipping companies can easily find the best candidates and seafarers never have to send out maritime job applications again.
Our story began with a certified ship captain Martti getting together with a bunch of people with different IT backgrounds.
We soon realized that a lot can be done to improve the current crewing processes that waste the time of both the seafarers and the shipping companies.
It just didn’t seem right that highly qualified seafarers find it so difficult to find a job at sea. The hundreds of maritime job applications they send out every time a contract ends, pile up on the recruiters’ desks, who can hardly handle the workload of ship crewing.
We’re not just building a crewing tool, we’re building a maritime community. Follow our blog and Facebook page for stories related to the maritime world. Comment the topics, contact us via Facebook or send us feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s build a community. Share StandByMate with your friends.
StandByMate is currently in the Beta-phase, so we really appreciate your feedback.
