Launch your platform fast with configurable on-chain escrow, soul-bound NFT identities, jobs and proposals, and more modular components. All open-source. All decentralized.
Focus on your platform’s iconic UX and stand-out features; let the engine for work marketplaces handle the rest.

The most resilient, uncensorable, and accessible systems are user-owned, decentralized, and autonomous. That’s why TalentLayer was built as a open-source low-level protocol for many applications to leverage; like SMTP for email.
Each year more and more workers find jobs on digital platforms. The "great unbundling" is happening fast - big generalized platforms are being overtaken by many niche platforms that serve their user's unique needs better. TalentLayer is empowering this next generation of marketplaces to transform the way people work.
TalentLayer harnesses the power of blockchain to allow network effects sharing - helping you bootstrap and focus on building user-friendly marketplaces that serve everyone; from crypto-native audiences to mainstream workers.
