Our mission: to be the best operating system for all things freelancer
From customized freelancer onboarding and compliance taken care of, to automated global payments and streamlined workflow management, our purpose is to give our clients the freedom to focus on what they do best, to reach their highest heights, with the best flexible talent, wherever they find it.
Our founding story
Our goal is to be that company that brings our vision to every company in the world.
We promise to remain true to the ethos that allowed us to gain and retain the trust of our first customers, which is ‘small enough to care, big enough to deliver’ .. retaining that true focus on customer centricity no matter how large or successful we get. We promise to never become one of those big companies that become too arrogant to care or listen to their customers.
"small" enough to care
big enough to deliver
Our values... meet “ERIC”
We live by the old saying: if you lose a bit of money that’s all you've lost; if you lose your integrity you've lost everything.
We believe that no company can withstand the test of time or is built for the long term without mastering resilience, no matter how mighty and strong they are today.
It's about finding new and better ways to serve our customers, whether via the launch of new platform features, new products altogether or just better service.
Everything we do culminates in helping our customers. By sticking to our values and mission of staying small as we scale, we fulfill our purpose of making our customers more successful.
