This week we present Gigster as our WIP of the Week. Gigster is a work intermediation platform that allows businesses to a describe a software development project to a sales engineer via instant messaging or a call and in 10 minutes get a guaranteed quote specifying cost and how long the project will take. Gigster manages a global online network of highly vetted software developers (often moonlighting developers of top tech companies or college students in top computer science programs) who are tapped to complete projects. Every project is organized and managed by a project manager. Gigster got started in 2013, funded with a convertible of $1.8 million, and it launched commercially through Y Combinator in mid-2015. By December 2015, it had raised an additional $10.7 million.
