We’re small, but growing rapidly
Sidekick is solving the problem of What, Why and How.
Our passion is twofold: Make sure people connect with the right solutions as easily as possible, and simplify the cloud procurement experience.
Solving how people find and select solutions in an industry that is only getting faster is quite the challenge. We like it that way. Yes, there’s plenty of competition out there, but that keeps us motivated to get the best solution for you. To help you make the best decisions possible we leverage amazing things like web scraping, big data, machine learning, and more. We do this not because they’re REALLY COOL but so they provide value to you in this ever-changing world. That’s why we’re your Sidekick.
Our values? We strive to be the best we can be. As honest as possible. We don’t know all the answers so we like to engage with really smart people. People who, if they already had the chance, would be using Sidekick before it was built. We groove on the thinkers, the originators, the ones on the fringe because they propel us forward.
Everyone should be able to access everything about Sidekick from anywhere. That applies to the team as much as the audience we serve. We’re global so we should act like it. We work online.
Right now we rely heavily on Toptal. They have some excellent #heroes and that keeps us nimble. Heroes? Well sure! Sidekick needs Heroes, or we can’t be Sidekick. In the future we will be looking for our own #heroes. If you are interested let us know through all the various channels that exist. You can find them below.
Marketplaces only work if there’s trust. We don’t need more biased advertising. We do need clarity, integrity and honesty.
If we do ever place ads in our application, they’ll be highly contextual, validated, reviewed ads from operating legitimate companies that we can verify.
You are getting the data. The straight goods. The real deal. Let’s face it, we’re inundated with marketing and confusion and yet still have difficulty finding and learning about solutions that are being offered. Sidekick streamlines that experience and simplifies the connection both to those awesome vendors and solutions, and also to the experts nearby who can make those solutions rock.
A major part of a marketplace is you’ve got to have stock on the shelves. To do so, we leverage big data and advanced proprietary scraping solutions to ensure the market is in-step with the world today. This data involves every single domain in the world as they are created, so you know who’s coming and going. That data is then filtered through machine learning to ensure you are getting the most-accurate data without bias. We’ve had enough alt-news lately so data is key. Then we align the machine learning further into categories and associations so you get the most complete picture delivered to you daily.
