A new professional community for the independent workforce

Contra was started by a group of independents who were tired of existing professional networks that were old, outdated, and blind to the needs of digital professionals. With Contra, you can create stunning visual profiles, creative exclusive referral communities, and earn money (commission-free!) using our project and contract tools created by fellow independents.
