The Founding Story
Shiftgig was founded on the premise of building a networking community for service industry workers. In the past, people looking for service jobs were limited to searching Craigslist or directly inquiring business by business. Shiftgig eliminated that process by directly connecting workers to businesses through an on-demand mobile application. After seeing there was a demanding need for this type of service, Shiftgig changed its business model and successfully pivoted from a web-based business, connecting service industry individuals to restaurants for full and part-time jobs to a mobile-first, on-demand labor marketplace, connecting businesses with people for hourly work.
