Why the name: We were looking for a name that personified the values of a service/friend who was equal parts approachable, reliable, trustworthy, intelligent and fun. We put these values to the test to a start up group in New Zealand and a few people suggested that they had friends called Henry who met these attributes. Once we'd settled on a name, we had to make it "start up cool" so we dropped the vowel - and we're now Hnry!
Why did the business start? Like a lot of successful tech companies, Hnry was started by James and Claire Fuller trying to solve their own problem of transitioning from salaried employment to contracting. Whilst the benefits of contracting are clear - greater work flexibility and higher earning potential, the key challenge is the increased financial administration associated with it. From the pain that James and Claire had to endure of fretting over spreadsheets, provisioning a large portion of their salary for tax, endless evenings and weekends working out how to do filings, to churning through various accountants giving them differing pieces of advice, Hnry was born - allowing contractors to do what they do best and leaving the burden of tax and financial admin to us.
