Elevator pitch

Employers find it difficult to hire a ready solution for complex projects using remote work marketplaces today, while freelancers find it difficult to scale beyond their area of expertise and find trusted partners to collaborate on bigger projects. Wedoo is a freelancer human cloud network with the end-to-end hiring and secure payments facilities of a marketplace. We are the simplest way for employers to engage top-quality, bespoke solutions to complex projects, that require high-skilled freelancers of diverse skillsets working cohesively and reliably in teams.

Daryl Tan, Managing Director of Wedoo Pte Ltd.
