ROOBYX in a Nutshell
ROOBYX provides refreshingly simple access to a Portable Benefits Solutions for the Gig economy and on-demand workers. We are building a community, providing useful tools to help on-demand workers navigate their way through the gig economy and the portfolio of careers it is now creating.
Why we built it
On-demand workers (or freelancers) are the fastest growing segment of the Australian workforce. This is reflective of the 162 million freelancers and independent contractors in the US and EU and the rest of the western world. On-demand workers work where they want, when they want, and whilst this freedom is generating a great new way of life, it does not come without risk.
ROOBYX has been created to empower and protect on-demand workers the way they need it and want it. Traditional solutions just don’t fit anymore, are too complicated and are not flexible or in-tune with the new market needs.
What we believeWe believe:
- every person should be able to understand their risks and make informed decisions to suit their situation;
- every person should be able to access relevant Portable Benefits to suit their needs, including those in the growing gig economy;
- trends and data should be available to our customers, along with superior user-friendly technology; and
- integrating with the latest and best on-demand services is essential to remaining current, and providing the best support we can to our ROOBYX community.
Where we’re headed
We continue to work closely with our customers, gig economy partners and other interest groups to build a community delivering relevant news, information and protections. From the starting point of our journey in Brisbane, Australia we are now looking to expand our platform to grow into UK, USA, Canada and beyond.
