A little sidenote

Malt (Formerly known as Hopwork) was created from Vincent Huguet's, Hugo Lassiège's, and Jean-Baptiste Lemée's equally shared frustration : Not being able to find an easy way to work with freelancers.

Malt was born from a solid ambition: to transform the intellectual service industry (IT services, brokers, agencies, etc.) by introducing an open-platform model, providing accountability, and a community for freelancers. With Malt, freelancers can make a reputation for themselves thanks to the reviews they get from their clients once they've finished their assignment.

2013

We are driven by our values.

Care.

Our company only works if people are put first, so we care about them, their lives, choices, and aspirations. Caring and supporting people means helping each other. It means we give honest, constructive feedback and make difficult decisions when we have to.

Spread the joy.

We put joy at the center of everything we do, and bring in a little optimism when it comes to work. We know everything isn’t perfect all the time, but it’s up to us to be positive, and to focus on what’s working so we can keep moving forward.

Turn ambition into action.

We believe in creating a better world by empowering everyone to bring their passions to work and realize their ambitions. We own our own ideas and work hard to turn the best ones into something concrete.

Give everyone independence.

Sometimes saying sorry is better than asking for permission, so we give people the autonomy to experiment and move fast. Sometimes we fail, and that’s ok – we own up to our mistakes as well as our successes. Our freedom to choose the way we work doesn’t mean we’re directionless, we balance it out with focus.
