Founding Charlottesville: Moonlighting App
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) — If setting your own hours, making money and growing your own business sound good to you, you should consider checking out the Moonlighting app.
Moonlighting is an app helping people to get discovered and get paid. It’s also giving you a chance to get stuff done and hire people fast.
“We used social media in the beginning, so we’ve spread virally through Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Some people have compared us to LinkedIn, a cooler, hipper version of LinkedIn. Some press has called us Craigslist without the creepiness. We prefer to look at this a little more professionally than what Craigslist does,” said CEO Jeff Tennery.
While they don’t do background checks, there are lots of features to help you make the best choices.
Tennery said, “What we do at Moonlighting is provide the most amount of information. There’s a review process, so you can see who the people are before you want to hire them. And the biggest thing that people do on Moonlighting is they share who they might hire with their friends on social media.”
Those reviews can help lead to bigger and better things.
“We want to help people start freelancing and then move in to becoming a small business. a successful long-term small business,” said Tennery.
There are more than 100,000 people using Moonlighting right now. A partnership with Verizon has helped them reach out to small businesses across the country.
