Boulo CEO & Founder
Our vision is a workplace that works for everyone
There are many reasons we chose to focus on mothers. The pandemic forced millions of women out of the workforce. Fewer women are contributing to the economy than there have been in the last 30 years. This fact affects everyone. As Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh stated, “We need to make sure if we’re going to have a strong recovery, a strong equitable recovery, we need to get women back into the workforce.”
So we are doing all we can to help women remain in and return to the workforce. We connect professionals to permanent full-time, part-time, contract, and project-based roles. We work with women looking to maintain both professional and personal goals and with companies that respect and understand it’s doable.
We work with forward-thinking employers, with a desire to attract the best talent using flexibility as a recruiting asset. Flex work looks different depending on the company or employee. It could be location, hours, or a flexible culture. A flexible culture could mean that you support your employee going to a school function in the middle of the day, trusting they will find a way to meet their goals.
Delivering the power of working mothers to your company.
And while we’re starting with mothers, we’re striving to create a better work-life balance for everyone, one hire at a time.
How it all began
Before founding Boulo, I had the privilege of creating highly effective teams that maximized group synergies at some incredible companies. But I also experienced the struggle of finding quality candidates. Issues included uninspiring resumes, un-vetted skills, and no diversity.
In my mom life, I found a hidden talent pool l call “carpool geniuses.” These are driven, educated women with a proven work history. But, the lack of flexibility in their prior career forced them onto the off-ramp. The lack of quality childcare, gaps in resumes, limited flexible work options, and missing professional networks leave these women with unfilled professional aspirations. To make matters worse, non-linear career paths keep them “hidden” on traditional job boards.
It seemed so ridiculous. I needed quality hires and there were thousands of driven professionals that weren’t being surfaced to me. So, an effort to help women return to the workforce and help employers find quality hires led to Boulo’s unique solution.
Fueled by optimism and experience, Boulo embraces our role as flexibility experts, resulting in industry-leading speed of quality placements benefitting both members and employers.
We also support my working mothers who have not left the workforce. These women are pursuing their careers but desperately wishing for flexibility as they struggle to meet all the demands placed on their lives.
Please join us in our mission of helping working mothers and employers achieve their potential.
I love working for Boulo because it allows me to be a mother, wife, and have a career. I grew up with a single mom who did her best, but it is important for me to be present for my three children. I can take them to school, meet them off the bus and attend school and sports events, all while providing for myself and my family with a fulfilling career.
I will move mountains for a company that offers flexibility. Their trust that I will execute no matter where or when I work, allowing me to uphold commitments I make to my kids, creates a loyalty like no other.
Flexible work allows me to be a part of something bigger that makes an impact on women’s lives while also being able to pick my kids up from school.
To me, flexible work means empowering people and giving them the opportunity to go after their career goals no matter what personal responsibilities they may have!
Flexible work allows me to work when and where I am the most productive which is more efficient for me and my company.
Flexibility in my work means that I’m able to be fully present in multiple areas of my life. Investing in my career, family, friends, and faith are all important to me and having the ability to balance each aspect offers a more fulfilling and joyful life.
Flexible work means the ability to marry your professional and personal worlds together. Being a mom doesn’t carry particular hours. Its 24/7. Its all about balance.
Flexible work allows me to have the best of both worlds….being a present wife and mom while also building a fulfilling career. Everyone deserves both!
Flexible work allows me to be present for all of the big moments in my family’s life while also growing a career that I love.
Having a flexible work schedule means that I can attend my daughters' events – from soccer practice to school functions and continue working in a career that I love and have worked so hard to build. Flexible work enables me to be the mom and the professional businesswoman that I want to be.
