Charlie is the free HR platform for startups. Building a company is hard, running one shouldn’t be.

We built Charlie to solve the problems we encountered when growing our companies. It turned out that we weren’t the only founders struggling with pains as we scaled, and we started letting our friends use Charlie too.

Charlie is now a founder’s best friend – enabling them to focus on the stuff that really matters. We’re enormously proud of the new lease of life that Charlie affords to young companies who now have more time to turn their ideas into reality.

Oh, and we’re keeping it free to for companies to use, because there are better things to spend your money on.
