The gig economy in Malaysia has seen a skyrocketing rise over the pandemic. We witness this through a tremendous surge of giggers signing up to our app shortly after the COVID-19 struck. We have been helping to improve the gig search for giggers via our app, making it hassle-free for everyone to take up gigs and start earning.
