Semble is a New York City tech startup launched in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic to help remote managers stay in touch with their teams. The founder of Semble, Lawson Kuehnert, previously managed a global travel company with 50+ employees in over five countries. Lawson found himself waking up every morning wondering how everyone on his team was doing. Except for a mass email or a big conference call, there was no fast way for him to know how everyone was doing.
This led Lawson to build Semble in early 2020, along with Dan Parker, Semble’s technical lead based in LA. Semble is a very simple tool. A manager uploads their team names and emails (or integrates via Slack) and schedules when Semble should check-in: daily, weekly, or every few weeks. Most managers find that using Semble for daily check-ins is best, but some managers prefer to use Semble for less regular touch-points. A manager can also select the time of day when the check-in will be sent out.
And that’s it! After everything is set-up, Semble will send out (via email or Slack) a short check-in form to everyone on the team at the precise scheduled time. The form asks a few questions, including “How are you feeling about work today?” and “What help do you need from your manager?”. Once responses are in, the manager receives a briefing straight to their inbox with the results.
At $19/mo, Semble is extremely affordable and a no-brainer tool for remote managers who struggles to know what’s going on with their team consistently. It can be used for small teams or large teams – there is no user limit.
