Our Founders

Built to make your life easier

Our founding vision for Wrk has always been centred around simplicity. Take a minute to read Mo and David’s thoughts on this goal and to better understand what Wrk is all about.

CEO & Co-Founder

Mohannad El-Barachi

“The automation ecosystem is vast, with a range of diverse solutions available. However, one common problem that we saw again and again when designing Wrk was that there were far too many barriers to entry for organizations eager to adopt automation but unsure where to begin. Wrk solves this problem by replacing high start-up costs, rigid implementation processes, and overly complex terminology with a transactional pricing structure, an easy-to-use platform centred around your business needs, and relatable, real-life use cases that show how automation can work for you today.”

David Li

“Typically, the main players in the automation space put machines first, with humans largely seen as a stepping stone to be disregarded once their particular task was done. Wrk was born out of a desire to turn this perception on its head and this is what we are striving to do with our pioneering Hybrid Automation platform. We fundamentally believe that automation can only be truly sustainable when machines and humans co-exist.”
