Where does the word “gigers” come from? 

Gigers is the name of our community of remote workers. We derived it from the English word “gig economy” to designate independent workers, digital nomads, freelancers, entrepreneurs working remotely, going from one remote job to another and traveling a lot while doing so. 

 
Is Gigers a social network? 

Yes, Gigers is a social network for remote workers and digital nomads, even if we prefer to define ourselves as a social community where members feel at home and help each other wherever they are in the world. But we are more than that: Gigers is the all-in-one platform where remote workers and digital nomads will find everything they need in order to succeed - from jobs to coworking spaces through an international community of like-minded people and useful resources. 


How can I create a profile for my coworking place?
 

If you are a coworking space, a company or someone working at home with some space to host other remote workers for a coworking day, then Gigers allows you to create a profile for your place in order to promote it to our international community of remote workers and digital nomads! To do that, you first need to create a personal profile by signing up and then click one of the “Become a Gigsurfing host” buttons or the “Add a new place” button in the side menu. Joining Gigers is free, however creating a place profile by becoming a Gigsurfing host and promoting it to our community is a paid feature: 150€/year (price not including taxes). After filling in the form about your coworking place, you submit it and our team will study it: if it is accepted, we will contact you with the details of the contract, proceed with the payment of the annual fee and publish it on the platform. Note that your place profile will then be available in all the languages our platform is available in (French, English, German and Portuguese) and will immediately be seen by our international community of remote workers and digital nomads! 

 
Is it possible to book a coworking session at a coworking place published on the platform? 

Not yet! This is something we are working on! Indeed, developing a booking system that is compliant with international laws in order to book coworking sessions in coworking places all over the world takes a lot of time and effort. Thus, it all be gradually available in the different countries, beginning with Europe. You can of course still create a profile for your coworking place in order to promote it to our community and we’ll let you know when the booking system is available in your country. 

 
Why creating a profile for my coworking place is a paid feature? 

At Gigers, we really care about offering the best service possible and about the security of our members. Having people pay in order to create a profile for their coworking place means that we receive fewer fake profiles and more serious propositions, which results in profiles of better quality and a safer community. Moreover, Gigers is an international community and developing a booking system that is compliant with international laws in order to book coworking sessions in coworking places all over the world takes a lot of time and effort. However, enabling you to create a profile for your coworking place, promote it to our community and pay a small fee for that enables us to have on our website profiles of coworking places from all over the world right from the beginning! Furthermore, when the booking system of coworking sessions will be available in your country, we’ll take a percentage of the bookings in your coworking place of only 5% (which will mainly cover the transaction costs of the payment service provider), where other platforms can take up to 15% or 20%! At Gigers, we prefer having you pay a small fixed fee for creating a profile for your place and then that the biggest part of the revenues from bookings goes to you and not us. Finally, remember that posting a place profile on our platform means that it will be translated in all the languages our platform is available in (French, English, German and Portuguese) and will immediately be seen by our international community of remote workers and digital nomads!
