Gigway – we’re creatives shaping the new way to work together.
We believe people want to work their own way. We believe in democratizing consulting. We believe that people want to be their own boss and live a flexible life doing what they love. At Gigway, we believe in people.
That’s why we’ve built the digital marketplace to match companies with professionals. Freelancers get our free mobile app and companies a free company account. Match, chat, sign contract, report, give review and handle payments – in one app.
