GigSmart Connects Businesses With Labor Needs to New Workforce Opportunities

November 29, 2018

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 29, 2018--Thanks to a growing gig economy, more than 16 million Americans are taking control of their work schedules and supplementing income via on demand job opportunities, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Now, there’s an app to help workers with specific skills to find work opportunities.

Launching today, GigSmart is a new mobile app connecting businesses, charities and individuals who have urgent, on demand labor needs with workers who want to earn income, gain experience, volunteer or follow their passion.

Via the app, which is available on both Apple and Google Play stores, workers can build a profile using more than 3,000 pre-loaded job skills. They may also set a unique rate for each skill.

A business, charity or individual requester can search by skill, review profiles and send a gig request to the worker or volunteer of choice. Within minutes, the worker may accept or decline the gig request. Upon acceptance, the worker proceeds to the gig site or begins working remotely based on the requirements. Once the gig is complete, the worker is then paid through the app.

GigSmart begins its nationwide rollout with the following markets: Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Denver, Indianapolis, Lexington and Louisville.

GigSmart serves all industries and all worker skills.
