As a startup, it is a fast-paced, pressurized environment, but hugely impactful and rewarding. The gig economy is growing and so are we: come join us help shape the Future of Work.
The Gig Economy is exploding.
Freelancers, contractors, consultants, gig workers.
Non-employees are projected to account for up to 50% of the workforce in the future.
That is $3.2 trillion in spend.
More than 50 million people in the US.
We are designing enterprise products with a focus on process automation, AI, digitizing workflows and building beautiful, intuitive apps.
If you have previously freelanced you may be familiar with some of the pain points that come with working as a contractor, tasks like time tracking, invoicing; getting business insurance, benefits; filing taxes; new hire paperwork and a host of other 'challenges'. GreenLight wants to help freelancers with all these things and more.
Public policy, laws, organizational structures and operational software is not designed for the future of work. This is creating a massive safety net issue for millions of contractors and freelancer workers who don’t get access to benefits. It also creates problems and risks for the companies who use freelancers; and creates a need for lots of additional processes for HR, legal and finance folks.
We are industry veterans with deep domain expertise, backed by great investors and advisors, deeply committed to building the best user experience in the gig economy.
We are looking for someone to be head of product, and take ownership of developing our platform to meet our company vision. We have a start-up culture and will be counting on you to come in, be a difference maker, and take the lead. You will be leading our development team, working with VP engineering and collaborating closely with our CEO. We have taken the platform from 0 to 1.1 and are looking for a leader to help take us from 2 to infinity and beyond...
