our story
A flexible way of working

“Work your way” Four years ago, we laid the foundations of a model that is now empowering more than 10.000 independent professionals to “work their way”. Thousands of businesses across France, Europe and the UK put their trust in us to connect them instantly to the best professionals for punctual shifts.

It was a gamble with deep convictions: opening the world of independent work to those whose never thought of working freelance before.

Even though we could say that different personal experiences led us to focus on the hospitality industry, we are now willing to help and support independent professionals from other industries like healthcare, retail, agriculture …

We are proud to support this new generation of self-employed professionals, who, thanks to technology, have easier access to a network of businesses and shifts, paid fairly and whose skills are in high demand.
