The talent I find on Contra has been excellent. But aside from that, Contra’s community differentiates Contra from other freelancing platforms. I love the responsiveness of the Contra team, and how invested they are in your success. I actually pay freelancers I’ve found outside of Contra through Contra because I love the platform so much, especially that they don’t take a cut of your payment.

I used to waste hours trying to find talent. Switching to Contra was 10x on my time, energy and money as an Entrepeneur and Creator. Lauren was a perfect fit from day one, and I couldn’t have found someone of this calibor without Contra.
