Instawork creates economic opportunity for small businesses and hourly workers by connecting them for a variety of employment opportunities. In addition to being a two-sided marketplace, the online-to-offline nature of our product presents a unique set of product challenges. We're connecting people in physical space and managing around all the unpredictability and unique social dynamics of hourly labor.

Instawork's goal is to be the essential staffing engine for all businesses that support the local workforce. We create flexible opportunities for workers to earn additional income, build new skills, and even test out employers prior to accepting full-time positions. Our vision is to organize the world's labor force and make it as accessible to local businesses as tap water. Whether it’s a light industrial or hospitality business, the Instawork team builds technology to connect people with what gigs they want.

We’ve been fortunate to be funded by some of the greatest investors in Silicon Valley: Benchmark (Bill Gurley), GV (formerly Google Ventures), Spark Capital, Y Combinator, SV Angel, Crunchfund, Steve Chen (co-founder of YouTube), Mike Vernal (VP of Product at Facebook), among many more.
