About the company:
LifeWork is building the Freelancer Operating System to help top-tier freelancers save the hundreds of hours each year spent running their business. We help freelancers gain control of their income, access healthcare and benefits, and ultimately reach more clients.
Our first product streamlines the payment process between freelancer and client. We take an escrow-like approach, saving both parties hours in admin time normally spent processing invoices and 1099s and giving them more security with every payment. Freelancers get paid faster and more frequently, and their clients put down a lower up-front payment, which is vital in this current climate.
We are targeting top-tier freelancers in the US. This is a challenging segment to market to, given their distributed and individualistic nature. However, this also presents us with our greatest opportunity, and highlights the importance of this role. If we are able to build a community of top-tier freelancers around our platform then we will build an incredibly powerful and defensible position from day 1.
