Here is a bit more information about what freelancers can expect when working with Blink:

• We work with Freelancers on a project-to-project basis. Projects at Blink usually range from 1-4 months in length. Most opportunities are full-time, but sometimes part-time needs arise as well.
• We love working with Freelancers long-term, but work opportunities can come and go throughout a year. This isn't a great fit for a lot of people who prefer more full-time, permanent work.
• Freelancers for Blink work on user-centered design projects. This could include design work like workshops, wireframing, prototyping, and user research.

While we may not have a need now - that could change next week! Feel free to submit your information to us via this application and we'll keep you in mind as those opportunities arise.
