About Mario

Hi there,

I'm searching for a programmer/developer co-founder that would like to disrupt the survey/research landscape. So far companies like Survey Monkey and Qualtrics have neglected the academia market, specially students going through post-graduate degrees.

You can realize about this every time you are invited to fill out a new questionnaire (over Facebook) by a friend who is currently studying at uni. My solutions primary targets researchers/master students but it also envisions to expand to SMBs.

The main that this idea addresses are:
- Surveys are mainly distributed to homogeneous samples (friends or friends of friends/no more that 2 degrees of separation)
- Academia survey/questionnaires aren't fully indexed
- Non-transparency in incentive creation and delivery
- Spammy survey distribution
- Poor survey quality, etc.

This idea got the 3rd place in Startup Weekend - Bergen 2012 - link here:
Company Name: Tapuna

+3 years have passed by and the problems that I was trying to solve still remain.

If you are interested in solving the aforementioned issues, please don't hesitate in reaching me out. I'm a Full Time Data Analyst at Faebook EU HQ. Though, I'm more than happy to start crafting a solution on part-time basis.

I'm looking for a developer passionate on data&analytics and research.
