Q&A with Shaun Lin
What's the vision of your startup?
We want to be the biggest football online community in the world, where every one who plays the game and has a smartphone will be on PlayPal. PlayPal will be a vibrant community which is self-sustaining on users' participation and self-generated content. PlayPal will stay engaging, fun and relevant.
Eventually, it will become a credible platform for young and budding players to showcase themselves and get discovered by the professionals.
What's your company's focus for the next 6-12 months?
We are focused on improving our PlayPal football app to achieve product-market fit, in the next 3-6 months. At the same time, we will be working on crafting and integrating a revenue-generating system into our app.
We are looking to penetrate the football-playing market locally from now till the end of 2015, achieving 100,000 app users.
What's the culture and work environment like?
We value every member of the team. We welcome good ideas, constructive feedback and are always looking to improve on the things we do.
If you have any burning issues, don't be worried about raising them, we are all for an interactive, fun environment and open communication.
What would you say is the best part of working for your company?
Just being part of a exciting journey, unlike working in the corporate world. It would be great if our team members were also passionate about football and understand the game, then it would be truly a work-play environment.
We encourage initiative and creativity. No idea is too crazy! Your valuable input contributes to a great product and as much as possible, we want our team to feel ownership of what we are building together.
What's the story of your company?
It started with us three co-founders, all passionate about football and friends since secondary school. In our working adult lives, we have found it increasingly hard to gather our football buddies for a simple game. Then came the idea of creating a platform for football-lovers to easily connect and find games or fellow players to play together. From that initial idea, we have developed a whole online community, where each user - having an unique player profile - can be a football star in their own right.
We are now looking to expand our programming/designing and marketing team. We welcome individuals who are as excited as us for football world domination!
