CareerGig, a SaaS-based marketplace that utilizes blockchain and other technologies to provide freelancers with competitive jobs and benefits, and employers with state of the art verification services, announces its initial seed funding round has closed, and that it will launch an initial set of offerings on June 15, 2020.
CareerGig provides freelancers with financial and insurance benefits that rival or surpass those of full-time employees, while connecting them with contract work from top employers around the United States. Unlike other platforms, CareerGig uses blockchain, artificial intelligence, and other technologies to verify and validate freelance employees so that companies can trust that they are hiring the best possible talent.
The June 15 launch will include a set of insurance benefits for freelancers, and a set of assessments and background checks for employers to provide contractors. This will be followed shortly by the launch of the CareerGig marketplace scheduled for mid-summer
“We are thrilled to be able to offer such a valuable platform for both freelancers and employers during a time when both flexibility and stability are so important to the success of individuals and the companies that hire them,” said Greg Kihlström, CEO and Co-Founder of CareerGig. “What’s more, our core philosophy of trust and validation using the best available technologies means that our platform is built with our customer’s data privacy and best interests in mind from the start. We look forward to the launch of our platform and are eager to share some of the other features we have in store.”
