Who We Are

Jitjatjo is a high-growth tech start-up headquartered in the bright lights of New York, but our family extends out globally to places like Portugal, Estonia, Poland, Australia, and more. We develop, market, and operate the contingent labor platform and staffing marketplace that leverages A.I. and Empathic Intelligence to instantly and accurately match businesses with vetted industry professionals. We provide businesses with staffing on demand and offer quality, vetted talent through our trusted platform, with unparalleled visibility, efficiency, and performance.

Creating opportunities through technology is what we do; it’s not who we are.

Why do we do what we do?

We want to help people reach their potential, our talent to feel valued, and our business partners to thrive. Our belief is that everyone, especially now, needs a champion, needs to be seen, needs to feel heard, and needs to be believed in. It’s time to embrace change, transform the way we work, and intentionally create a future with opportunity in abundance.
