We are not a gig platform or a staffing firm. We are a different kind of platform– we help companies and creative freelancers connect directly for work opportunities.
Grapevine is the response to the outdated and unfriendly systems of the business of freelance. So, we created the platform we wished existed back when we were freelancers.
We don't take commissions and it's free to join. We offer flat-rate, transparent pricing for companies. That means no commitments or hidden fees.

We are on a mission to redefine the status quo and create just and ethical work conditions and improve the life of others. Our goal is to modernize freelance business and establish the largest network of companies and creatives in the arts, design, entertainment, media, and production.
The creative industry has traditionally relied on word of mouth to find exceptional freelancers and vice versa for work opportunities. We are taking this underground network mainstream, pushing the freelance industry into a new paradigm.
We cater to highly specialized or niche creative fields that are often underrepresented in traditional or online marketplaces. Companies and agencies on Grapevine represent a broad array of industries, such as consumer goods, tech and healthcare.
A human looks at every application to join Grapevine, whether from a company or a freelancer. Freelancers go through our highly selective process to join. During onboarding, a freelancer’s profile, quality of portfolio, and overall work is reviewed. You can rest assured that Grapevine has top agencies and companies and real, high quality freelancers. No outsourced or cheap labor.
Grapevine is free for freelancers to find and do work. Grapevine charges companies a flat-rate fee (one time or monthly) to post work opportunities. We also offer premium paid services for companies and freelancers to automate administrative work.
Free membership + no commissionsUsing Grapevine to find work is free. Keep 100% of what you make. No fees or commissions. No bidding systems. Work on hourly or fixed rate projects onsite or remotely. It's entirely up to you.
Freelancers can create custom profiles with full control of their pay rates and bookings and become part of a professional community.
Optional premium tools and servicesWe offer optional premium services at a flat monthly rate to automate administrative tasks, such as invoicing clients, scheduling and project management, allowing you to increase your billable hours.
Freelancers can grow their business by receiving custom job leads, project pipeline management and access to educational resources for career development.
Flat-rate pricingCompanies can pay a flat rate as needed to post work opportunities or purchase a subscription to post numerous times per month. We also offer premium services to automate operational and administrative tasks at an additional monthly rate.
