Mining Your Business | Christian Damstra from Damstra Technology

Christian Damstra had a difficult job—manage a workforce of coal miners and ensure their safety. As one of the world’s most dangerous professions, keeping coal miners safe involves a lot more than an occasional training video.

A complex framework of procedures, practices, competencies, and standards must be met on a daily basis. But he discovered that despite the complexities of the requirements, there existed no sophisticated management tools. So he built his own—initially for his own purposes, but soon others wanted it.

Eventually, this became Damstra Technology, a startup that offers a full HR platform, specially designed to manage workforces in hazardous occupations.

On this edition of Founders Journey, Christian discusses how he took this company from a small startup with 20 people in an office in Australia to a publicly traded company with 200 employees, nine offices, and operating in 13 countries.
