dumpling helps gig workers become business owners, and provides tools for business owners to operate with just a phone and some hustle. We are a small, highly motivated team who is going to help revitalize the economy and communities by helping people start, run, and grow their own businesses.
dumpling has created a community of users, many of whom were gig workers, who now own and operate their own businesses, and who are vocal about desired features and challenges they are facing. To further help know where our community members are coming from, everyone on our team has been a gig worker, and has also begun to run their own personal business on the dumpling platform.
dumpling is a fully distributed team, and has been since its founding. Team members are self-starters, and often work across teams. As most people realize by now, working remote efficiently and effectively with others is often done poorly, and we do it exceptionally well.
