In a tweet made by the start-up’s Twitter page, they said: “To match customers w/the best operations talent there is, we select only ~10% of Runner applicants. Once you’re a Runner (entry-level, exec assistant, COO, HR lead, etc.), you’ll work w/growing, inclusive startups while curating your career with flexible scheduling & pay.”

What service do they provide?

They help you add the people your team needs fractionally when they’re needed. To apply for a temp worker, you have to answer ten questions, including your full name, company name, email, where you’re based, company website, number of employees, the role you’re looking to hire, and more,
