A paragliding HR-specialist with five years of job experience? A finance guy who only uses his bike and gets agitated around cars? Or a PR dude that could - allegedly - be Don Juan's biggest competitor? All of them and more are the teammates behind SmartDreamers from Romania, the around one-year old HR and internet recruiting startup that gets you access to jobs that fit your needs! Meet them in this week's Startup Pick!

Our one-line pitch is...
Connecting companies with young professionals.

Introduce your team, and tell us one interesting thing about each member. We are...
We are Adi Cernat, Marius Huza, Vlad Curtifan, Andrei Panait and Alex Ramadan. We are all in our late 20s and we are working as friends and colleagues, building the dream. Adi has more than five years experience in the HR market and loves paragliding. We made a large life insurance on his behalf as he likes to live dangerously and that can be a little scary for us. Marius is the man who will most certainly write a book when he retires, about how to market a project with zero funds. He only uses his bike to travel and gets irritated each time a car splashes fumes on him. Andrei and Vlad (sales) are the kind of guys who would sell ice to an Eskimo. Vlad desperately tries to break Adi's powerball record. He has a lot of work to do, still. Andrei has a peculiar way of sneezing. You might have heard him and thought it was a spaceship being launched into space. Alex (the PR rep) is set to put SmartDreamers on the cover of Time magazine. People are talking about Don Juan, the master of seduction but they haven't yet seen Alex in action.

We received our initial capital through...
Our partnership with Tjobs Holding B.V.

The real pain about starting a business in Romania is...
Having to deal with the "perks" of bureaucracy. Visiting literally dozens of offices and completing hundreds of papers just so we could start helping people and companies get the best of the best.

The person that inspires us is…
Anyone who builds a startup from scratch and takes it to the highest levels of success. Someone who is not scared to challenge the bigger players in the business game.

The one app/service that we couldn’t live without is...
SoundCloud. Well, basically we work hard and let ourselves flow on the rhythms of good music.

The one thing we would save from our burning office is...
Our coffee machine.

The worst piece of advice we ever got was...
Focus on developing the product and don't take it to the market until it is almost perfect.

The one thing that will make us quit is...
An asteroid, and Justin Bieber singing non-stop in our office.

Our inside joke is...
Doing Johnny Bravo's "hoo ha hooah" noises in random daily moments. Like now. (We are all laughing as we write, by the way). 

You might not believe it, but we...
Do a push-up for each bad joke. We only accept stand-up comedians in our company.

We'll call ourselves successful when...
you'll recruit your new team members no matter the country using

The startup we really want to see on inventures’ Startup Pick is...
Sinapseria. Check it out :)
