May all your questions be answered
Is Uncompany just a recruiting group?
No, recruiting and job placement is a lot of what we do but we are built on three pillars: Opportunities (jobs), Education (career development), and Community (connections). As we grow we continue to develop the business with these three things in mind.
How did Uncompany start?
Uncompany was started when we saw a need in the growing freelance market to build a system and community that made freelancing and working with freelancers as frictionless as possible.
WHAT DOES BEING A “FREE AGENT” MEMBER GET ME?
1. Networking amongst your peers
2. Access to a multitude of downloadable resources
3. Educational email series with tips to grow and scale your business
4. Recruitment to for our working member pool via Discord and emails
5. Personal support though our Talent Relationship manager and your peers
6. Programming and opportunities to connect
DO YOU HAVE IN-PERSON EVENTS?
In the past we have done more in-person events, coming out of Covid that stopped but we hope to bring that back in the future with coffee meet-ups and events.
CAN I GET WORK EVEN IF I AM NOT A WORKING MEMBER?
By being active and growing our Discord community there is an additional opportunity to connect with other freelancers for subcontracting work. To work with Uncompany clients you will need to be set-up as a working member and complete onboarding.
HOW DO I BECOMING A WORKING MEMBER?
We have a select number of working members within our network, onboarded to our system and ready to jump in and work with our clients. Throughout the year we will open recruiting for general application. In between these month-long windows, we stay open for high-need skills that will vary, based on demand. As a Free Agent Member you will get notified via Discord and emails when we have these openings.
IS THERE A GUARANTEE OF WORK?
There is no guarantee of work. We do our best to connect you with jobs but can’t guarantee steady work exclusively through us.
CAN I BRING WORK TO UNCOMPANY?
We love when our freelancers bring us clients and larger projects that they are looking for help on building a team. We have several working members who operate both as a client and as a freelancer for us. Our goal with our freelancers is to support them in whatever way they’d like to grow their business, if they want to grow and use other freelancers we can support them in that.
IF I WORK WITH UNCOMPANY CAN I WORK WITH OTHER CLIENTS/RECRUITING GROUPS?
Yes, you are free to work with whomever you want. We only ask that if you are introduced via Uncompany to a client that you work through us on that client.
WHAT TYPES OF CLIENTS DO YOU WORK WITH?
We work with all types of clients and verticals, from large global brands and agencies to growing start-ups.
IS UNCOMPANY PROJECT MANAGING ALL THE WORK?
No, we are working as a connector. Our goal with our work is to connect the right freelancer and client. After we complete the introduction and paperwork we are out of the middle and our freelancers run the project and manage the relationship. We can be pulled in to mediate conflict situations or if there is a change to scope that would affect the contract or estimate.
AM I W2 OR 1099?
All of our freelancers are considered 1099. We do not take out taxes from your check so you will need to be accountable for this.
