Business App

The Business App provides convenient tools for potential employers to manage their workforce and work schedules. With the Business App, employers can create new roles and assign them to the shift. They can also create shifts of varying time dimensions, from single days to longer periods. The Business App allows for the editing of existing shifts, providing flexibility in scheduling work.

Employers also have the ability to monitor employee statistics, enabling better human resource management. The application allows for account management, adding new supervisors, and creating favorite employee groups, streamlining the team management process.

Worker App

We have designed the Worker App with the aim of providing flexibility for users in choosing their work and schedule. Through an intuitive interface, users can browse available shifts provided by different employers. They can sign up for shifts of interest and receive notifications for upcoming dates.

Once signed up for a shift, users have access to tools for tracking their working hours. They can monitor the duration of the current shift, enabling accurate measurement of worked hours and work efficiency.

The Worker App provides a convenient way to manage work schedules, offering users an easy process for shift search, sign-up, notifications for upcoming shifts, and the ability to track working hours.

Design system

Consistency was crucial in Traba’s design. Our bespoke design system ensures future additions align with the existing style, from color palette to typography, icons, grids, and component sizes. This system guarantees uniform design throughout the product.

For the most typical and most frequently repeated components we created a range of variants and states, allowing for their quick and easy aplication to any project, no matter the context.


Our detailed and comprehensive set of rules and guidelines includes over 100 components to ensure visual and functional consistency throughout the project implementation process.

The initial stages placed the focus on inventing – or creating - the client's brand, starting with research and determining the art. This stage also involved extensive research into the client’s field, some of which meant gathering large amounts of data. This was followed by the design phase, during which the logo, typography, and key visuals were agreed on. With these materials in hand, we then worked on the user interface for the website and the design of the app. Finally, we collaborated with the client on ongoing marketing efforts.
