About Midstay


A newfound flexibility

The world is undergoing a revolution in how we work and where we work from. The rigid working boundaries are outdated and due for a shake-up: there’s a desire for newfound working flexibility.

Employees report preferring a more flexible working model in the future as we see individual purpose come to the fore. People are now saying: “My work has to be more than a job. It has to fit in with my life’s purpose.”

The adoption of remote work has accelerated faster than many would have imagined.

Midstay is on a mission to Make Work a Better Place.

“We are built around the idea that everyone should be able to live and work from anywhere. We believe in the transformative power of travel and so we are paving the way for a future where anyone can work abroad, remotely: combining efficient work and a better quality of life.”

📍 Belgium / Bali

My friends often describe me as an enthusiastic “bon vivant”.
Life exists to savor it, every moment: be silly, have fun and live the dream, don’t dream it.

Here’s how I like it: living close to the ocean, going surfing at sunrise before heading to my amazing workspace with tropical surroundings and natural lights … and of course finishing the day with friends and a good beer at sunset.

I've always been fascinated by technology and how people interact with it. I began my product design journey in late 2021 while also studying Computer Engineering in college. As a product designer, my goal is to create a product that provides the best user experience while also solving business problems.

Junior Software Engineer

Chakras Andika Kuntjoro

📍 Indonesia

I’m a self-taught, fully remote developer from Jakarta, Indonesia. At first, I was thinking that it was impossible to get a job as a self-taught programmer since I don’t have the degree and I also don’t have references or a job background to back me up. But, I believe that “if you do what you do because you love it, then sooner or later, someone will give you an opportunity”. Fast forward to today, here I am, doing something that I love and am passionate about.

I love to travel, and I love to take photographs, so it is only natural that I will love taking photographs while traveling. In my free time, I like reading and cooking.

CTO, Co-Founder

Magnus Remøe

Always being more on the alternative side of things, I like to explore originality in any area of life.
Be it lifestyle, art, philosophy or other. I love building cool things, and tackling big challenges.

When I’m not building Midstay, you can find me in the water surfing, playing futsal or exploring the inner workings of my mind.

Aya Rheffouli

📍 France / Marocco

Aya Rheffouli, a digital product designer + futurist specialized in crafting experiences with *design thinking*, *brand systems*, *user experience*, *storytelling*, *interactivity*, *visual design* & *graphic design.* **Incoming Product Design Apprentice @ Sephora.**

I'm the gal who makes people buy your stuff.
I conceptualize captivating experiences and I live and breathe for the Web and interfaces in general. I continuously create and explore new ways of conveying my ideas and challenging my understanding of design.
And I don’t do boring.

To quench my hunger for digital knowledge, I kickstarted my design journey in 2020 and haven't looked back since.
I’m curious, passionate, and strive for continuous evolution, clarity, simplicity & logic. I’ve made creativity my lifestyle and have been fascinated with all aspects of design.
As a digital native, I love diving into why and how people use things, and furthering those experiences to make them memorable. I aim to nurture a strong expertise and deliver top notch digital products using cutting edge tech.
My work is driven by my passion for digital platforms and my curiosity to push boundaries, ask questions, and discuss thought-provoking ideas. I am motivated most by the opportunities and influence of design. Achieving a sense of new or different, whilst communicating and connecting intimately with people (stakeholders or peers).
Each project is regarded as an independent exploration of form, function and storytelling always relevant to its target audience and final medium. For this reason, strategy, research, as well as content ideation precede any aesthetic implementation.
I envision design as a way to methodically utilize creativity, a trait unique to humanity, to define & rethink what is possible. I hope to spend my career solving the pressing challenges our society endures, envisioning solutions with timeless impact.
