About them:
We built Opus for Work because there needs to be a better way to find on-demand work. First and foremost, Opus for Work is a company focused on the workers. We have personally experienced how hard it is to find flexible work that fit our lives – to live the lives we want and still pay the bills.

From driving to delivering, we have worked for many of the on-demand companies listed on our site to support ourselves while we built the foundation of our company. We consolidated all of the important information about on-demand work and developed a formula to recommend jobs that best fit your qualifications and schedule. We hope you find us helpful, and look forward to building more tools for you in the future!

About Wonolo

An On-demand labor space, Wonolo (the name is a take on "work now locally"), is backed by Coca-Cola and has several hundred businesses signed up as clients. It sets up temp work in the same way that companies like Uber and Handy broker rides and cleaning appointments: Its app pushes short-term jobs like event staffing and warehouse work to potential temp workers via a smartphone app. Workers, who are not classified as employees, but as independent contractors, can choose to accept them or reject them whenever they want.

Wonolo ( pronounced 'woh-know-low', stands for Work. Now. Locally) is an on-demand staffing platform for businesses to fill their immediate hourly or daily labor needs.
They solve the last mile staffing problem for Fortune 500 companies as well as Small-to-Medium businesses (think Retail merchandising, eCommerce fulfillment, Event staffing, Hotel housekeeping, etc). Wonolo allows companies to manage unpredictability by augmenting their existing labor force with hourly to daily Wonoloers who can come in within an hour and do the job.
Wonoloers have been pre-vetted, background checked and insurance covered to meet compliance requirements of companies. Wonoloers are people who want the freedom of flexibility - the opportunity to choose when they work, where they work, for whom they work. They believe that the traditional temp staffing model is cumbersome, expensive and labor intensive, and is ripe for disruption. They revolutionize staffing by removing the friction for both job requestors and job seekers.
