Denver-based GigSmart, a company that uses a mobile hiring app to connect businesses that have on-demand or project-based staffing needs, is expanding into seven major U.S. metros, including San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, and Houston, as well as Chicago, San Francisco and New York.
“The way businesses have sourced labor hasn’t changed for decades. It’s a slow and expensive process. GigSmart is disrupting this model by making it easier for workers to connect with businesses looking to hire in real-time,” said Rich Oakes, president of GigSmart in a statement. “Our success in existing markets like Denver, Cincinnati, and Las Vegas, has laid a solid foundation from which we can expand into more cities to source and connect people to complete gigs.”
