Uncompany was founded with a lofty goal of making unconventional working as accessible and acceptable as full-time. We believe that by developing a system we can reduce friction and make unconventional working more workable for both clients and freelancers.

Octy the Octopus is our spirit animal. Much like an octopus we are made up of many arms of unique skills and experience. We value flexibility, intelligence, and the ability to work independently in all environments.

  • One body, many arms
  • Independent yet curious
  • Highly Intelligent


1. Do > Try. “Do or do not. There is no try.” He might be small and green, but Yoda is everyone's favorite Jedi for a reason.

2. Relationships First. Freelancing often feels transactional. We automate many of our processes so that we can spend more one-on-one time with our clients and freelancers.

3. Make it Simpler. We're always iterating on this one. Connecting good freelancers to good clients can be complicated. We don't think it should be. This one keeps us up at night.

4. Pay Attention. Being fully present and attentive in our work, helps us to build stronger relationships, and make good stuff.

5. Take Ownership. We aren't here to be in the way. We are here to empower our clients and freelancers to run their show directly with each other, take ownership of the relationship and grow together. 

6. Build with Margin. You don't know what you don't know, right? Always leave a little room for error, scope change and the unknowns.
