Launched in 2015, CloudPeeps is a community, marketplace and platform that empowers freelancers and businesses to do their best work. We connect trusted freelancers and professional service providers with top clients, in a seamless platform that makes it easy to manage relationships, payments and more.
The journey started by in mid-2011 when founder Kate Kendall
was working as a freelancer, consulting on community building and marketing, while traveling the globe. She noticed that many clients were unhappy with agencies and not in search of full-time employees, but still needed help in building and growing their businesses. Fast forward a couple years later when she was creating her first startup, The Fetch
, she found finding trustworthy, reliable, and skilled freelancers with ongoing availability a challenge. This is why CloudPeeps was created!
We believe that work is changing and this change is happening fast. The future involves more professionals working independently, remotely, and creatively. We are passionate about building an ecosystem that makes it easy for this future generation of freelancers to do work they love with clients who value them. We also want to create flexible working environments where mothers and fathers can stay engaged in the workforce while caring for their families.
Our product is crafted by a lean team of committed folks who are freelancers, entrepreneurs, and business owners themselves – we know Peeps and we know clients! We've been there. We also are building community online through Freelance Friday
We’re also champions of remote work culture and comment frequently on the freelance economy.
