Our Mission

Yes, productivity is great…

BeforeSunset set out to help you establish a mindful work routine that works for you.  We want to help you and your team enjoy mindful productivity through BeforeSunset, and be able to finish work… well, before sunset! Introducing the ultimate solution for your needs: a productivity app where you don't get overloaded with feature fatigue and lose time trying to understand the product. Simply integrate it with your calendar and get started right away. Let us check items off your task list and give you your time back.

Manifesto

We’re not only the creators but also the first users of the BeforeSunset platform. Starting from our own needs, we could empathize directly with our users and understand their pain points.

However, we don't rely solely on our own experiences. We’ve conducted 200+ customer discovery calls, led an industry-wide survey reaching over 400 participants, and continue to collect data to ensure our product roadmap will effectively meet the needs and expectations of a wider range of users.

BeforeSunset Team is Exactly Cut Out For This!

We’ve been through it, struggling to balance productivity and personal life. But we didn't just stop there and decided to take matters into our own hands and create a solution that works for everyone.

Our passion was contagious and developed into a team of 10+ people working with a clear vision. Each member of the BeforeSunset team brings a unique set of skills and experiences to the table, but we all share the same passion for mindfulness, productivity, and work-life balance.

Meet BeforeSunset

Our story extends beyond the inception of BeforeSunset. Started as an internal time-tracking tool for software engineers at BREW, BeforeSunset quickly evolved into a full-fledged work management tool for people who yearned for efficiency, productivity, and of course the ability to finish work at a reasonable hour.

After 24 hours of the Product Hunt Launch

The hype around the platform we had primarily built for our own internal use grew quickly among our clients and partners. To us, this was living proof of the drastic need in the industry. 

After numerous discovery conversations and an industry-wide survey, our “built-for-internal-use” platform became a time and budget management tool with an extremely successful Product Hunt launch, becoming the #3 Product of the Day,  and ranking as a top product of the week.

Gathering feedback after our launch, one thing became clear: the productivity challenge had to be fun and mindful. That’s when we took the matter into our hands and built BeforeSunset 2.0, so you can seamlessly take the necessary step to a more productive you!
