Rev Mission:

Rev's mission is to create great work from home jobs, powered by AI.

Rev is a marketplace for remote work. We do for work-at-home freelancers what Uber does for drivers. Like Uber, there are two sides to our marketplace: people that pay for services, and people that get paid to work. Tens of millions of Americans would prefer to work from home if they had the option.

Today, we offer four services and we will launch more in the next few years. Our initial offerings are: audio transcription, video captions and subtitles, and document translation. What the verticals have in common is the work can be done anywhere, and software can transform them, via marketplace methods, productivity improvements, and machine learning. We believe many types of work can be done remotely, and we have a game plan to change more of them in the years to come.

Started by MIT engineers, Rev has $30M+ from Silicon Valley VC’s. We have 125 + employees (and growing) with offices in San Francisco and Austin.  Sales are growing fast and we hit profitability in 2017. Don’t take our word for it – search for “@rev” on twitter to read what people are saying about us.
