Building a house can be a tough affair, especially finding the right people to do the job. Mihhail Pitjem experienced the same issue while looking to book contractors fast and efficiently for building a house. He couldn’t find any trustworthy sources for finding local help in the Estonian market and had to rely on either confusing search results or friends’ recommendations. The entire process was incredibly time-consuming and frustrating. Since he couldn’t find any company that met his needs, he decided to start one of his own.
Pitjem shared this idea with his friend Pavel Ivanov, and the duo started developing the idea further. It was back in December 2020 that they launched their app called Skillus – a real-time mobile marketplace for local help.
