Fast-Growing Startup Enables People to Work When They Want, Make Extra Money and Learn New Skills
Chicago, IL – March 27, 2015 – Shiftgig, the premier online community for the service industry that enables hourly workers to connect with businesses, announced today it has opened a new office in Dallas to provide on-demand shift opportunities for local workers. The company currently has two rapidly growing on-demand service centers in Chicago and New York.
While Shiftgig has had a significant presence in Dallas since its launch in 2012, the new office will hire and train 300 people in the metropolitan area within its first 30 days for on-demand opportunities at cool venues, trade shows, catered events and even a major country music event on April 19.
Shiftgig will host open calls for interested applicants on Monday, March 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 11 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Shiftgig, 400 South Record Street, Suite 1200. For more information on the open call and applications, visit www.shiftgig.com/ondemand.
The Dallas office is led by Shiftgig City Manager Vivian Adams. Adams brings more than two decades of experience in team building, staffing, training, business development, and entrepreneurship, most recently with Legacy Custom Apparel.
“We are thrilled to offer the Dallas community an opportunity to join Shiftgig’s on-demand team,” said Adams. “We’ll bring jobs to you through your phone. Whenever you have extra time or want to make some money, just claim a shift and start working!”
Shiftgig not only offers great gigs, but makes it easy to build an entire schedule with them. Through a mobile app, workers can find open shifts, access the details with one click, and then claim the ones that fit their calendar. And most importantly, they can work as often or as infrequently as they want. Shiftgig was recognized for this innovative solution by being named an Up-and-Comer winner at the 2014 Chicago Innovation Awards.
Shiftgig is an online marketplace that connects workers with jobs. Shiftgig collects client requirements, worker skills, and real-time shift data to provide smarter and timely matches. With over 1,300,000 registered members and 27,000 businesses, Shiftgig has built the largest online community where members connect with business to access jobs and content in the restaurant, nightlife, hotel, and retail verticals.
