About Instawork

Instawork is the fastest growing career marketplace for blue-collar workers. We've changed the way traditional recruiting works for small businesses (e.g a sign on the window) by turning the process into an automated matching problem. Our vision is to organize the world's labor force and make it as accessible to local businesses as tap water. We're growing rapidly, even in 2020, and are expanding across the US.

We’ve been fortunate to be funded by some of the greatest investors in Silicon Valley: Benchmark (Bill Gurley), Spark Capital, Google Ventures, Y Combinator, among many more.
