Building a Digital Platform to Help Families Find and Screen Caregivers

We worked with MyManny to develop a platform to match families searching for caregivers with vetted candidates.

The Background

Founded in 2013 as NYC Mannies, MyManny has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, and other media outlets around the world. MyManny helps families find and screen caregivers. We helped them transform their New York-based service into a nationwide business.

The Concept

How can a small agency go bigger, faster? NYCMannies was a small New York agency that connected families to well-vetted caregivers. Founder and CEO John Brandon had a bold vision to expand his manny placement agency across the globe. He approached Very to help him launch new products beyond the city.

The Process

MyManny already had a website, but matching caregivers with families was still a manual process requiring administrative overhead. John envisioned a site that automated these tasks and gave both sets of users — caregivers and families looking to hire them — a seamless experience.


For Caregivers

We built a portal where caregivers can apply to be part of MyManny, update their profile details, and even apply for a background check — thanks to an integration with Checkr’s API. Every MyManny caregiver must pass a background check before they can search and apply for job postings.


For Families

We also built a portal for families seeking caregivers, giving them a convenient hub where they can update their profiles and billing information and review caregivers that have applied for their open positions.

The Results

Now, MyManny is able to scale to meet customer demand without needing to hire more administrative staff. The resulting product cuts out two major pain points for families when finding a caregiver: searching and vetting potential candidates. Only caregivers who are interested in applying to each job appear on a family’s dashboard and each caregiver has already been screened and background checked by the MyManny team.
