All too often, you’re right, it’s not worth it.
Nobody seems to care! You don’t get the kudos you deserve (nor the extra cash money), and your colleague, let’s call him ‘Lazy Larry’, gets paid all the same as you!… (how annoying).
Well, we think this is bad, very bad.
You see, we’re big fans of ‘meritocracy’. “What’s that” you say? well, basically, if you’re good at something (anything really), you should be recognised and rewarded for it. Marketplaces can achieve meritocracy – because, let’s face it, no-one will pay for Lazy Larry with a 1-star rating when they could work with you, Super Sarah with a 5-star rating! That’s why we’ve built Gigable to be a true marketplace. If you are an awesome delivery guy or girl, for example, you’re rating will reflect it, you’ll climb the Gigable ladder and you start making the extra money you deserve.
OK, so that’s the meritocracy part (there’s that word again), but you know what else? We also believe in equality and your independence. Okkk …. stay with us! What do we mean by “Equality“? Well, with our two-way rating system, the feedback flows both ways. Just finished a gig with an awesome business that are a super-sound bunch? let everyone else know by giving them a 5-star rating. And, what about this independence lark? (we go on about this one a lot!) … well, basically, what we mean is you can be best version of yourself in our world, and start building an identity that reflects how awesome you are at whatever you do. But – and this is the important bit! – why would you bother? well, because, it’s quite literally all about You (not us)! You get the ratings you deserve – You climb the ladder – You pick up more gigs – and You start earning extra money… just the way it should be. You have total control and responsibility over your work, how you do it and how much you can earn.
Thing is, building all this great technology is pretty hard, but, don’t you worry, we’re fighting for you guys – and we’re not going to give up building stuff the way it should be, because it reflects our beliefs, and because we know you will love it even more this way.
