The pandemic sparked a significant trend: flexible work. But what “flexible” means varies for everyone. To a worker, it might mean working from anywhere, anytime. For an employer, it could be one day a week from home—except during crucial meetings. This difference creates tension and challenges for job seekers.
Enter Flexa. It’s a global directory of verified flexible companies. It connects job seekers with employers whose flexible work approach meets their expectations.
Flexa is a solution for flexible jobs.
Flexa’s origin story is rooted in cofounder Molly Johnson-Jones’ own frustrating encounter with a broken job-hunting process. Her inspiration came from a personal experience when she, facing a chronic auto-immune disease since age 18, requested to work from home one day a week to manage her condition better.
In response to this reasonable request, she found herself terminated from her job within a few days. This shocking experience fueled Molly’s determination to create Flexa, a platform addressing the flaws in the job-seeking system. Flexa ensures that no one else faces such challenges when seeking flexible work arrangements.
