The birth of XpressJobs
The idea for XpressJobs was born inside the mind of Sampath and C...
See More hathum Henegama. Chathum's role as the Head of Technology at Davton, he wanted to hire a few software developers. So he put out a few advertisements for the role. He soon got responses and found another problem: he received too many and had no way of sorting through them. So Chathum met his friend Sampath and shared his problem because Sampath had a background in recruitment. The both spoke of this and decided to build a website to help people find jobs.
However, neither of them could commit to this venture full time and they needed someone who could meet and introduce the service to clients. The found the right person with these talents in an unexpected place. That place was the McLaren’s Building in Bambalapitiya. The right person was Oshadie Korale, who at the time was a Ph.D. student in Pharmacology.
Oshadi had moved into the Regus office and occupied one of the mini-cubicles to work on her final thesis. She did so because of her two puppies at home that required a lot of love, which killed her focus. The Regus office would help her focus – or so she thought. At the Regus office, she was regularly visited by two of her friends: Chathum and Sampath. Both of them knew that while Oshadi had no background in business or IT, she was good at selling ideas to people. This was after seeing her experience being involved with the non-profit: Adopt a Dog.
Initially, Oshadi was skeptical for she had spent much of her life studying to be a scientist. So her friends said, “Why not join us until you find something to research?” The answer Oshadie threw to this question was a positive yes. Soon after, the three co-founders put in their savings to help the company afloat for six months. Work then began on building the first version of XpressJobs. And on November 2nd in 2015, XpressJobs was born.
