Rightlance 101: Who are we, what do we care about and why?

People won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. 

The origin of the quote above has been attributed to just about every motivational speaker going. However, to us it doesn’t really matter who said it, it’s what it says. We want you to know who we are, what we care about and why.

Rightlance is founded by a team of three, Terence O’Donoghue, Matt Pilott and me (Jack Coupland).

Terence is responsible for the technology – with a focus on infrastructure, backend development, project management and security.

Matt is the guardian angel of the product, looking after UX, UI, design, frontend development and the product roadmap.

I’m everything customer focussed, responsible for marketing, onboarding, customer support and customer success.

We care about creating an equilibrium between creative businesses and their freelancers, allowing for the prosperity of all.

We care about creative businesses because we believe creativity is at the heart of every human being on earth and creating great things only comes when a strong collaboration is in place. We want to help businesses achieve this by making it cost effective and time efficient to build a freelance talent pipeline; the tools to collect, organise and collaborate with freelancers.

We care about freelancers because we have been freelancers. We want freelancers to find fulfilment in their work whilst enjoying the benefits of a balanced life – allowing as much time for enjoyment as there is for work. We want to put freelancers first, from our pricing (we will never take commision from any rates agreed or charge freelancers to be on the platform) to our community; giving freelancers a place to be at home.

That’s why we do what we do.
