Online Marketplace Looks To Disrupt The Freelance Game
Working Not Working founder aims to change the way creative professionals are hired.
Hiring a freelancer can be frustrating, costly, and time-consuming, a problem Justin Gignac hopes to solve with his new site, Working Not Working. Justin, a freelancing veteran and former PSFK speaker, wants to streamline the hiring process and create a place for freelancers and the people who need them to easily find each other.
The mechanics of Working Not Working are simple: freelancers sign up on the site and create a basic profile of their experience, skills, rate, and experience, and availability. Hiring managers can search for freelancers or follow their favorites by collecting their profiles all on one dashboard. The page sorts the freelancers based on availability, and hiring managers are notified when someone becomes available. Working Not Working, is an invite only site- Justin and his team hand-pick the freelancers on the site so hiring managers can feel confident they’re hiring qualified and high-quality candidates.
