HOUSTON, TX (August 15, 2023) – SkillGigs, Inc., an e-commerce talent marketplace that pairs skilled healthcare and technology job seekers with AI-matched work opportunities, has been named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list for the first time in the company’s history.

“We are thrilled to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the first time,” said Kashif Aftab, founder and CEO of SkillGigs. “This recognition validates our unwavering commitment to driving the future of hiring through our AI-based bidding and matching technology. Our revolutionary e-commerce marketplace platform, leveraging cutting-edge AI, empowers travel nurses and tech workers to secure contract or travel assignments quickly and easily. Our platform has spurred unprecedented growth in just three years, thanks to our relentless focus on delivering a seamless, intuitive, and intelligent end-to-end experience for our users.” 

History of Inc

For four decades, Inc. has celebrated the fastest-growing private companies in America, with companies such as Microsoft, Under Armour, and Patagonia gaining their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. The companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 represent a new cohort of rapidly growing private businesses, all of which have demonstrated an ability to succeed multiple economic challenges. Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, they must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2019. The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million. 

SkillGigs is a “job matchmaker” that uses AI to bring employers and top talent together 24/7. Job seekers with SkillGigs profiles utilize the company’s patented AI-powered 3D Resume tool to accurately and effectively present themselves and match their skills to potential employers. Employers, including traditional staffing companies, partner with SkillGigs to list their jobs in the SkillGigs Talent Marketplace and receive AI-matched candidates from a constantly refreshed, rigorously screened talent pool.  

The SkillGigs Talent Marketplace

It offers a unique bidding function for both employers looking for their next placement. For job seekers, the easy-to-use feature allows them to directly contact employers with lucrative or desirable openings and offer a bid with their ideal pay rate. They can bid on gigs in real-time, track their activity, and receive notifications when they win a bid. This opens them up for interviews with potential employers. Likewise, employers can submit a bid to any candidate they are interested in, and start the interview process with a new level of efficiency and transparency. SkillGigs can be used as an end-to-end solution for procuring Travel Nurses or Tech Workers on a contract basis where SkillGigs acts as the employer of record, or you can use SkillGigs to source and recruit talent and bring them on your own payroll. 

Continued Aftab: “I am proud of our team for all they have done to ensure the success of our employer clients, whose average vacancy length for the most skilled positions has shrunk from several months to just a few weeks. Above all, we are incredibly grateful to the skilled workers who use our marketplace to find their next perfect job, travel assignment, or tech contract.”  

Aftab and other representatives from SkillGigs will be honored at a conference and awards ceremony for Inc. 5000 companies taking place October 31-November 2 in San Antonio, TX.
