Adepto started as an idea by our founder, Chris, when he was still in university. Forsaking the “traditional” path (go to university, get a full-time job based on degree, the end), Chris started working as a contracting consultant at 19. After a few more gigs, a stint in the army and joining a few boards, Chris graduated, securing a six-figure consulting gig, something no one he knew was doing at age 20. A year later, Chris resigned from that contract and jumped head first into building what would become Adepto. Partnering with his co-founder, Michael, he’s building the dream of enabling anyone to find the right job no matter where they are. It’s this vision of the future where organisations can focus on the work, not the employment type, along with the opportunity to empower businesses and individuals around the world with technology that fuels the organisation and drives everything we do.
