Stairlin was founded in 2017 in Lausanne Switzerland by Thibault Dubuis and Bastien Gysler who were dumbfounded by the fact that it is easier to book a flight and a hotel on the other side of the planet than getting an appointment for a haircut in the neighbourhood.
Every self-employed run into the same fundamental problems. Endless administrative work, late payments, no-shows, buried under email, and not enough time for what matters.
To solve this issue, Stairlin develops a suite of simple tool, but very powerful when combined to reduces grunt work, increases their productivity, gives them insight about their business, and finally give them back time for their family or leisure.
Bastien is the co-founder of Stairlin and thanks to his innate taste for design, love for building products with cutting-edge technologies, security awareness and a dose of healthy paranoia Bastien is the right guy to spearhead our product development.
Bastien is a true believer that technology is meant to simplify our day-to-day life. As a backend engineer and agile project manager, he is building Stairlin because no-one is doing it right.
Previously to founding Stairlin, Bastien developed his skills as a top notch software engineer at several Swiss tech companies, Bastien has a Bachelor of Science - Business Information Technology from the HES SO.
