The way enterprises
get work done is evolving

We’re shaping the future of work by enabling seamless access to the world’s best independent talent.

Graphite is powering a workforce in transition

A workforce in transition

People are the heartbeat of every organization. And yet, most work models are not built to handle the demands of the modern workforce. 

Employees wanting better work life balance, pay, and flexibility realized the benefits of going independent and remote. Companies started realizing that they needed to change as they faced capacity and capability gaps in their teams. 

Reimagining the modern workplace 

As companies retooled their workforce to navigate a changing labor landscape, Graphite emerged as a platform for helping companies gain seamless access to the talent they need on demand.

By creating a platform where independent experts and leading companies can meet, we’re paving the way for the modern workplace. Businesses and experts alike can enjoy the benefits of a flexible workforce — a win win for everyone.

Teddy has been a pleasure to work with. He inherited a complex project and worked diligently to understand the context and make sure his deliverable was spot on.
