Working with some of the Philippines’ most talented freelancers, Founders Gia Le and Roberta Schmieder experienced first-hand how much value outsourcing can create for businesses and freelancers. This inspired and ignited them with a passion to give back and pay it forward. The idea? A premium job board to help great employers around the world connect with high-quality Filipino virtual assistants and freelancers ethically and sustainably.
Based in Berlin, Gia Le is an Australian CEO of a global digital marketing agency. She employs 12 full-time Filipino virtual assistants who have helped scale her business rapidly whilst working with some of the world’s leading brands .
She is a strong advocate for Filipino freelance workers and believes that they have the potential to succeed in any field or industry which inspired her to start WOWFreelancer.com with Roberta.
In addition to their technical and creative skills, Gia believes Filipino virtual workers and freelancers also have a strong work ethic and are committed to providing excellent customer service, helping businesses grow from good to great.
A German native, Roberta brings over a decade of experience working with top international pharmaceutical firms after receiving her PhD in oncology research. She has amassed notable achievements including delivering the launch of the world’s first COVID19 mRNA vaccine with her team via a sales multi-channel marketing strategy.
With her extensive knowledge of marketing strategies and strong belief in outsourcing, Roberta’s vision is to raise the awareness of Filipino virtual workers and freelancers to European companies – to connect the world’s talent.
