More about us:

Independent workers comprise 30% of the U.S workforce – and growing – but lack many of the basic supports and protections that traditional employees get. We aim to change that for our 150,000 members, and for the 42 million independent workers nationwide. Oh, and we’re also the people behind all those ads with the beehive that you see on the New York City subways.

Like we said, we’re not typical. We think of ourselves as “practical revolutionaries” – that is, people who have extraordinary vision and want to make significant change, but can also put big, lofty ideas into tangible action. We believe strongly in solidarity, both for our staff and for the freelance community. For more information about us and what we do, please visit

Our office is in DUMBO, the first stop into Brooklyn on the A, C or F subway lines.

To apply:

If you’re interested in joining our team of entrepreneurial pioneers, please email your resume and cover letter with salary requirements to: Sorry, but we won’t consider resumes that don’t include both a cover letter and salary requirements.

We look forward to hearing from you!
