A talent platform built for the future of work

Vetted, top ~5% talent

You spend countless engineering hours on interviews that go nowhere. Squad members are thoroughly vetted with a series of technical interviews. So you can focus on building amazing products.

AI-driven matchmaking

You waste time going through 100+ profiles before you find a ‘good’ one. Squad uses AI & reputation systems to curate the right match in <48 hours. You’ll receive one and that will be the one you hire.

Payment & legal rails

Web3 is confusing and you never know if you are doing things right. Squad simplifies it for you. One simple invoice. Fiat & crypto payments. Employment compliance regardless of geography.
