Our Story

Hi, welcome to TaskArmy!

The website was founded in 2010 by Aymeric Gaurat-Apelli, following his vision to offer a high quality outsourcing marketplace. As a serial entrepreneur, Aymeric has since moved onto other projects, notably weekplan.net.

In 2016, we (Francois and Ji) took over the reins and started modernizing the platform. Quality, safety and ease of use are our top 3 priorities.

Quality

All the services are manually approved. We won't accept scammers, non-english speakers and poor performers

Safety

Your money is sent to the service provider only when you approve the work. This is risk-free outsourcing

Ease of Use

Our new platform is easy to use. Cut the hassels to be simple enough


Why outsourcing

Why aren't you outsourcing more today?

Because outsourcing is usually associated with poor quality. It is hard to find a good service provider or it takes too much time to find one. Another common issue is that when you outsource offshore, you are confronted with people of different cultural backgrounds, and with different ways of communicating that can cause problem when working with them.

Too many people today don’t even consider outsourcing because they think it is not worth it. It would take too much time to find someone, so they prefer to do it themselves.

Stop that! With TaskArmy, we want you to realize the benefits of outsourcing, and to reduce the gap between the moment you need something done by someone and the moment it is actually done.

We want to actually make you enjoy outsourcing by removing whatever barriers you may have encountered in the past.


Why TaskArmy

Today TaskArmy focuses on outsourcing tasks.

A task is “I need an icon done for my iPhone app” or “I would like to improve the google ranking for my website”. We put the focus on services. You need a new Wordpress website? Search for "wordpress" on TaskArmy and you will find all the Wordpress related services that freelancers can do for you at a fixed price. It is as easy as going to the supermarket.

We also screen the service providers before they can list their services on TaskArmy. Every single service you find on TaskArmy has been approved manually.

Having lower prices is not the priority on TaskArmy. We don’t encourage the freelancers to push their prices down, we banned the bidding system you see on all the outsourcing websites because it is an abomination.

TaskArmy reduces these gaps by focusing on details. For example, you can reply to the freelancer messages you get in your emails directly. This is big because it means that you are now working with your outsourced team members the same way you do with your employees.
