"Microwork" means many different things to many different people. In a recent Bloomberg Businessweek article, "Meet the Microworkers", Rachael King defines it this way: "The trend, which goes by many names—crowdsourcing, the human cloud, microwork—uses the Internet to access workers around the world for short-term projects that pay a few bucks to hundreds of dollars per hour. The tasks might require a few minutes or a few days to complete."
For Mavenlink, we want to provide a comprehensive platform that supports project based work from start to finish, whether that is a few minutes, a few days, or a few months. As our CEO Ray Grainger mentioned in the article, Mavenlink was created as "an online workspace for independent workers so they can easily collaborate with others, keep track of multiple projects, and network with other high-level professionals."
With that goal in mind, there is nothing that makes us happier than seeing a Mavenlink user like Kelly Parkinson from Copylicious having success working with clients, running her own business, and living the independent dream. To Kelly, and all of you out there like Kelly, keep up the great work...we're here to help.
