Hey Contra Fam!
We are so excited to launch our Spring 2022 Bootcamp Program!
Our Bootcamp Program is our way of giving back to the independent community — by giving you an opportunity to make connections, build your portfolio, and learn the ropes of working independently.
The Contra team wants to continue to support the independent community and we believe there is no better way to do this than by giving independents an opportunity to make connections, build their portfolio and learn how to gain their first client using Contra. Previous independents we’ve worked with have gone on to work with Cowboy VC, Li Jin and so many more incredible companies!
We are offering $1,000 for the program. This is a contract / independent position and requires a total of 40 hrs over 1 month. This program will run for a month in the Spring 2022.
We are so happy to be helping you kickstart your independent career. Check out everything you need to know at Contra.com

Contra is a professional community for the independent digital workforce. Digital professionals use Contra to create stunning visual profiles, earn money commission-free, and build high-quality professional communities and referral networks. Contra was founded just over a year ago by a group of independents who were tired of existing professional networks that are blind to the needs of digital professionals and is rapidly paving the way for the future of work, or the “passion economy” (a term coined by one of our earliest investors). Our June product launch, the first Annual State of Independence report, was the #1 product of the day, #2 of the week on Product Hunt. We’re also one of just a few companies partnering with TikTok to launch their TikTok Resumes Product.
