Jolly is a global professional network for freelancers

Connecting trustworthy freelancers and businesses, to build the Trust Economy together

Tens of thousands of members, and growing fast

We Believe

It’s time to build the Trust Economy, a more just and free evolution of the gig economy

People should own their reputation data and use it however they want

Freelancers and businesses should be free to match up and work on their own terms, without middlemen

People deserve to know beforehand if a work experience will be meaningful and rewarding


A few of the ideas that have helped us create Jolly


Jolly is headquartered in Austin, TX with remote team members around the world working together to build the Trust Economy. We're active participants in the Time Well Spent movement and advocates for Humane Technology (if you're in Austin, we coordinate Austin's Time Well Spent Meetup, so please join!). We value diversity and inclusivity, and we strive to reflect in our own product the beauty of the world around us. Together with our tens of thousands of users, we're creating a better future for freelancers and the businesses that are ready to join the Trust Economy.
