Testimonials

The best web3 projects trust us

I was on a tight deadline for a project so I reached out to Thirdwork to help find a designer fast. They took care of the entire vetting and hiring process so that I could focus on the work, plus the designer was so good I’ve now hired them for multiple different projects.

Marketing @ Rabbithole

Hiring is always a challenge and in the web3 space, it's even more of a cluster. Thirdwork takes the 1-on-1 time to learn about your company's needs and culture, and only presents real matches. I would recommend thirdwork to anyone looking to hire thoughtfully.

Zach

Co-Founder @ Blockchain Home Registry

I came to Thirdwork three weeks into my search for a content writer. We had tapped our community, but couldn't find the right fit. Thirdwork matched us with a stellar writer, and now I no longer have to stress about content creation every week!
