Level Up Your Career

We’ve taken the term Virtual Office and made something totally new; an easy to use cloud-based hub for your freelance career. The experience is built around one narrative: helping you find work, manage your work, and get paid. It’s as simple as that - we know that you don’t want to have to do all the admin and organisation around the work you love, so we’re building an experience that builds it all into one simple process. We kicking things off by launching our Portfolio Building, Contacts System, and Communication Portal. With our Guide to Getting Work we’ll help you build a sustainable and growing career you can be proud of that doesn’t leave you relying on job marketplaces or agencies, racing to offer the lowest price. Our Virtual Office will also give you access to discounts on products and services, access to our easy to use step-by-step guides and an information centre, as well as plugging you into our community through the forum and messaging service. The next steps will be building be building our project management tools, contracts and invoicing and much more to make every step of your career simple and automated. We want to build this with you, so we’d love to hear from you and build the future of freelancing together.

Our Background

We made UnderPinned to help build the future of work with you and put you at the centre of your freelance career. We get the freelance struggle; everyone at UnderPinned has worked as one at some point. We understand the painstaking admin that makes you feel like you have a second job, we get struggling to find the right work-life balance, and we get feeling like an outsider sometimes.

UnderPinned was born out of our belief that life can be so much simpler and more engaging for everyone living outside of the 9-5. We’re building the freelance hub of the future, and we want you to be part of it. With a carefully curated user experience, we want you to focus on building the freelance career you’re passionate about, while we make sure you’ve got everything you need to do so.
