We know this is an About Us page, but at Martide we put our clients and our seafarers front and foremost.
So who are you, and how can we help you?
You’re a small to medium-sized shipping company that’s looking for licensed seafarers to fill your vacant maritime and offshore jobs. You’re tired of scrambling to find crew and you need a way to fill those vacancies quickly and easily. You want to reduce your time-to-hire and make meeting your crew change over dates less stressful.
You might also be looking for a crew management system that streamlines every step of your recruitment pipeline. Martide’s software as a service does everything from finding qualified candidates and scheduling interviews to signing contracts and booking flights to get your crew on board your vessel with a minimum of fuss.
You’re a qualified seafarer who’s looking for your next contract in the shipping industry. You might be a deck cadet straight out of maritime academy or you could be a master with more years under your belt than you care to admit. Either way, we’ve got you covered when it comes to lining up your next contract. And the one after that, and the one after that.
We work with some of the most prestigious clients in the maritime industry as well as with an international pool of manning agents. What this means is that once you’ve created your Martide profile, countless employers and recruiters will be able to see your details and get in touch if you’re the right seafarer for their vacancy. And of course you can search for jobs too.
So this is where we tell you about the origins of Martide. The seeds of our company were sewn after a late night conversation our Managing Director and CTO, Sam Hamilton, had back in 2015 with an acquaintance in the shipping industry. They talked at length about the lack of a truly great end-to-end software solution that would help shipowners and ship managers effectively find and recruit seafarers, and then manage their crew.
It was a seed that took root and over the coming months ideas were thrown around, plans were formulated, blueprints were drawn up, site maps were pored over, meetings were held, investment was secured...and eventually the seed started to grow. And Martide, a recruitment and crew management solution for forward-thinking shipping companies, was born.
Now we’re a flourishing company made up of talented individuals who live and work in a number of different countries across the world.
But no matter where we come from, live, or work, the one thing we have in common is that we’re all committed to the success of you - our clients and job seekers. We might be in different time zones but we’re connected, we communicate and we care about matching the right seafarers to the right jobs.
We also believe in doing things a little differently which is why we’re shaking up the traditional methods that ship owners use to recruit and manage seafarers. We strongly believe technology shouldn’t be something to be feared. Instead it should be harnessed to make filling vacancies and finding jobs easier.
