MCC Silver Partner LiquidTalent Officially Launches!

After a very successful LiquidTalent beta phase, today we go live! Here’s what you need to know:

Why LiquidTalent?
We believe the world will benefit from more visionary and compassionate companies that are building tomorrow. At LiquidTalent, we understand that the working world is going through a massive transformation. From the Agricultural Revolution to the Industrial Revolution, we now find ourselves in the Technological Revolution, and the foundations of the global economy are in a major state of flux. The agents driving this transformation include a desire for more:

  • Autonomy, independence and freelance
  • Real-time, frequent and accessible professional opportunities
  • Purposeful work that fulfills our highest needs
  • Applications designed for a mobile-forward, fast-paced economy
  • Work-life balance that caters to our unique preferences

LiquidTalent deeply understands these change agents which allow us to build products that satisfy the needs of modern-day professionals and next-gen companies. We are building the platform and community we always wished we had. Today, we are proud to say “we have it.”

What is LiquidTalent?
LiquidTalent is a web and mobile local talent marketplace for hiring vetted developers and designers through social connection. Our on-demand platform facilitates direct connection between talent and hirers via text messages and call requests.

On the hiring side, we have excellent for-profit companies and non-profit organizations looking to grow their teams. Warby Parker, ESPN, WeWork, Charity Miles, The Adventure Project, Bonobos and Compass have recently joined our hiring community.

On the talent side, we have exceptional Developers and Designers. Backend programmers, mobile app wizards, front end UI/UX experts, graphic artists — these are the types of talented, vetted professionals using LiquidTalent to find fulfilling paid opportunities.

At LiquidTalent, we are creating the Future of Work platform for the next generation economy.

We also love to bring people together in the real world. We host frequent, intentional community events ranging from: “Lightning Talks + Slow Food,” where select hiring partners present their products and hiring needs to a group of LT Developers and Designers; we host “Founders Real Talk,” where Founders confidentially share business challenges to a curated group of other Founders; and we are the very proud producers of “Future of Work Summits” where we showcase thought leaders and future-forward influencers, unite local community, and connect participants to real work opportunities. All of our LT experiences champion the Future of Work spirit.

The LiquidTalent membership community is built upon these core values:

  • Mutual respect: Let’s treat each other like we want to be treated, with kindness and professionalism. We’re all in this together.
  • Diversity and inclusion: We care deeply about having a diverse community of talent and hirers. We want our platform to be representative of the cities we work, play and live in.
  • Clear and open communication: We ask for responsiveness, timeliness, and clarity in all communications.
  • Be personable: Let’s have fun and make each other smile.
  • Act with speed: Time is the most precious of all the resources; respond quickly and work diligently.
  • Always do your absolute best: We ask our members to do their absolute best work, every time.
