Helping the world hire better people faster.

Marnus Broodryk and Francois de Wet

Where it all began

As an industrial psychologist and talent expert, Francois de Wet worked with many high profile corporates and CEO’s. Over the years he noticed that they all had one thing in common: They were highly frustrated with the recruitment process.

This realisation planted a seed for Francois and in 2018 he decided to start a side hustle, tending to this problem.

When entrepreneur and Shark Tank SA investor Marnus Broodryk tried out Fran’s video interview software in his own accounting firm and experienced the time saving benefits, he saw the potential to help thousands of companies around the world to experience the same ROI in their businesses.

Marnus joined Francois on the Wamly journey in 2020, challenging the very foundations of how the world has always done recruitment and utilising the latest technology to help the world hire better people faster.

Going for interviews and potentially starting a new job is terrifying because the decision to work for a company goes both ways. As a potential new recruit, what I value is a great culture, team collaboration and experienced leaders that want to invest in your growth. In the first almost 3 months of being with Wamly, I did not once regret my decision to join. I think this just solidifies that what I saw in my interview and online is definitely a reality that Wamly is living. Wamly is authentic and definitely did not take the plaster approach of hiding flaws. They own there flaws, they are willing to fail but what I see is a group of people who want to succeed and make the company a huge success - Im all in for Wamly and I am excited to see where the journey goes!
