    Job description

    Discover our galaxy 🪐

    Since 2013, when Malt was founded by Vincent Huguet and Hugo Lassiège, we have become Europe’s fastest-growing freelance marketplace.

    We’ve built the industry’s leading freelance management solutions—all on a powerful, data driven tech platform—to match companies with the right freelance talent.

    But we’re more than just a connector. Our marketplace streamlines freelancer-client communications, simplifies administrative and legal tasks, expedites invoicing and payments, and so much more.  

    Today, our company is growing fast! We need people like you to help us write this next chapter.

    - Strong company culture fueled by 500+ Malters from 40 countries
