Gurugram: PickMyWork, a gig platform that assists digital businesses to acquire end users (individual users and merchants), has proficiently impacted 400k gig workers since its inception. In just over three years since its foundation, PickMyWork has built a strong network of gig workers and merchants as part of its agent network, supporting its client base to increase at a rate of 20-25% month after month.

PickMyWork is expanding its marketplace to capture businesses utilising its one-stop shop for their variable resourcing demands and benefit from the pay-per-outcome model. With the primary goal of leveraging the opportunities presented by the rise of the gig economy in India, the platform aims to reach 20 lakh users in the next calendar year. Furthermore, with thousands of gig workers relying solely on PickMyWork for income, the platform intends to facilitate income worth 25 Cr to 15 lakh gig workers in the upcoming fiscal.

“In the years ahead, our strategy is to support the gig workforce economy and generate jobs for thousands and thousands of independent professionals. Since the future of workspace is digital, fueled by gig workers who prefer to work remotely on flexible projects, we are motivated to empower our workers with the appropriate tools and training regularly. Moreover, we are pleased by the comprehensiveness of our offering, and the diversity of clients served on our platform, and we will continue to deploy new talent to expand aggressively in new markets,” said Vidyarthi Baddireddy, CEO, PickMyWork.

PickMyWork’s platform was specifically configured to expand faster alongside the thriving gig economy.

We have already established a presence in major Indian markets, and following our current growth rate, we will cover the entire country in the next five years,” said Kajal Malik, Chief Sales Officer, PickMyWork.

PickMyWork’s user-friendly platform is freely available via smartphone, and interested candidates can register, complete sales gigs, and get paid per gig.
