Send fun, personalized, and physical birthday cards to your co-workers with ease. All organized and mailed automatically through Slack. Great for remote teams or teams that just want to send birthday cards that co-workers will cherish forever.
The story: I started my career in a non-remote company where (like many other teams) we signed birthday cards for co-workers. Unlike most other birthday perks it was actually fun and personalized. But my last couple of roles have been on remote teams so it's been impossible to do cards like that. While I love working remotely, I wish we still did birthday cards and our early customers agree - that's why Cardybot was created. As a Slack integration, we take the fun in this for all teams (remote and non-remote) to the next level .
When we started building Cardybot, we (off course) had no idea we would be launching during a pandemic but I hope this brings some fun and engagement to your team during this tough time.
We'd love to get some feedback and are happy to answer questions!
How hard would it be to add support for other kinds of cards? We typically do "welcome" cards for new hires, but (as we are now all working from home) that has recently become difficult.
Why not just read it without gloves, and then wash your hands afterwards?
We hope that this will be more natural since people typically send birthday wishes in Slack anyway
A related problem: who have I not messaged in a while? Scan my messages and tell me who is due for a "Hey, how are you doing?" message? Again, simple in principle, hard to make usable especially given that I use different apps to talk to different people.
Feel free to steal my idea and add it to your app!
