What do we do?

BlueCrew is software thats eats Temp agencies. We are currently employing over 500 workers across the bay area helping companies with data entry, warehousing, moving, and customer support.

We are automating all of the slow and outdated operations in the staffing world. By consolidating all workers and jobs in a central database, we create algorithms to screen, match, dispatch, and time-track workers. We improve transparency on both sides of the marketplace so workers build a great reputation as they work and employers can get feedback and analytics on the market value of different skills.

Why join us?

1) We give people hundreds of jobs per week (Veterans, Students, single mothers and fathers).
2)

Technical challenges

1) Create the easiest UX/UI possible to help people of all 'tech-savy' natures to utilize technology and find perfect jobs from their phone.
3) Optimizing our algorithm to maximize perfect employee//employer matches and safety for all the workers.
2) Optimizing commute distances and labor law compliance on a state by state basis
