“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Ziyak was created because of a dream that two men had. This dream reached further than the idea to create a business that is successful with high profit margins, but to create a business that is efficient for the user, saves money for the clients, and treats their employees like family. Both of these men had worked for companies that stopped being about the people who worked there and more about the money.
When Randy (President of Ziyak) learned that he had missed a “Bacon-fest” that occurred over the weekend, he began to think of a way that could ensure he never missed another incredible event again. He and Evan (Vice President of Ziyak) had already created another successful app together, and were excited to work together again, for this new, big, dream… and Ziyak was created.
From the very beginning, they wanted to ensure that Ziyak would be a business that was fun to work at. They believe in putting the employee first, because a happy employee will make sure their customers are happy. The idea is that all employees will put their nose to the grindstone and work hard when they need to, but they’ll be able to relax and enjoy their day when the job is done, simply because the company is successful, they are successful, and they are proud of their work. We want this company to be everything that most companies are not. Every single employee, from the president to the janitor, has a purpose, feels appreciated, and actually enjoys coming to work.
The goal is simple: Be awesome. Make money. Have all of the fun in the world.
This automatically flows from office employees to Ninja representatives. We want Ninjas to feel just as appreciated and a part of the team as every person who works in the office. Incentives and rewards will be given to Ninjas throughout the year to keep them motivated and excited that they are a part of the Ziyak team!
Ziyak is also offering $10,000 to the first person to have 10,000 downloads under their name. So if “Henry” invites all of his 2,000 Facebook friends to download the Ziyak app, and they do, and they each invite 5 friends to download the app, and they do, then Henry will win $10,000!
Ziyak also plans to host events and vacations for the top Ninjas, as a way to show appreciation for their dedication to the company and their hard work.
“I don’t want people to be stuck in this Netflix generation. I don’t want to just tell you what is happening in your city, I want you to go out and explore. You can’t do that from your laptop.”
Ziyak promotes having fun and adventures, but Ziyak is so much more than that. The goal for Ziyak is to help break a mold that so many people find themselves trapped in. Often people visit the same place for every occasion without ever venturing out into their own city, and learning what else it has to offer. At Ziyak, we want people to get out and explore their city. We want them to bond with other people and attend new events they might enjoy. Whether it is taking an art class for the first time, attending a football game, or enjoying a concert, we want people to learn more about themselves and their neighbors by connecting outside of social media.
At Ziyak, we are excited to help connect people to cities all over the country. From finding the best places to eat, to exploring the best events in town, for the old in spirit and young at heart, Ziyak is for everyone.
