We wanted a name that was both human and imbued with possibility. That’s when we came across the Japanese surname Ōno (pronounced “oh-no”) which translates as “large field”.
We see the ONO platform as a large field of opportunity to achieve a shared outcome by bringing together diverse skills and resources in support of impactful global projects.
ONO will ask you to enter your work history, highlight your uniqueness using tags, and complete a purpose pillar questionnaire at signup. It will then be guided by your intent, your behavior on the platform, and any additional information you add to your profile. ONO does not claw data from other platforms. All information is user actioned.
ONO's matching engine improves as you use the platform. It starts with demographic and psychographic insights collected at signup, then machine learning goes into action as you vet each match for relevance. You will always control which matches you accept, but the engine does the hard work of suggesting matches for you.
ONO distills purpose into four categories called purpose pillars: thinker, planner, doer, donor. These take into account factors like skills, resources, and expertise. Other platforms label users by job title, but ONO measures users by the purpose they bring to the platform and their professional lives. Learn More
ONO populates your dashboard with suggested matches, which you can simply swipe to save or dismiss. Unlike other social platforms where connections have little value, ONO lets you build circles or groups of matches that meet a specific need. These communicate to the matching engine the importance of each match to you.
Traditional social platforms rarely consider user intent, which makes finding the right partners a hit-and-miss experience. With ONO, your real-time Intent is a simple way to let other users know if you're seeking or offering support. The matching engine also uses your Intent to find other users with similar criteria and commitment levels.
ONO is not designed to be a recruitment platform. It works by connecting opportunities at the source through matching criteria, defined goals, and stated intent. However, we will look to introduce a feature to pitch projects or announce open positions in a later release.
User data collected through the platform is stored on the cloud. A report of what ONO collects about you is easily accessible upon request.
Unfortunately, ONO doesn't connect with external platforms. That's one way we protect your data.
