Curri CEO & Co-Founder Matt Lafferty on The Gig Economy Podcast
February 22, 2022
The Gig Economy Podcast is a great listen. Gig economy workers can tune in and listen to other stories from the gig economy, get the latest news and possibly find the best-paying gigs out there. In this episode of The Gig Economy Podcast, Matt Lafferty, the CEO & Co-Founder of Curri, sits down with the host to talk about what Curri does, how it’s changing the game for delivery drivers and why gig economy workers should consider Curri as their next endeavor.
Curri makes construction supplies and materials delivery easy, and it’s revolutionizing the construction industry in the nation and across the world. Listen to the podcast below to learn more about it, or read below if you’re interested in becoming a driver or using Curri as your courier service.
The Curri Delivery App Is an Amazing Gig Job
To explain Curri simply: Think about it like Uber or Doordash but for construction materials and supplies instead of food or people. Curri asked a simple question — couldn’t rideshare be used for business-to-business deliveries instead of just business-to-consumer service?
Of course, for a gig economy worker, the most important question is how it compares to driving with Uber, Lyft, Postmates and the like. The short answer is: it’s much better. Curri is a great gig job because it pays well, and we help our gig workers acclimate and train so they’re able to succeed in the job and get the most out of it. Curri pays better than Uber, Lyft, Amazon and other delivery jobs.
Also, when you first start as a courier for Curri, you don’t just get requests thrown in your lap. First, you’ll get access to Curri’s training, so you know what to do and how to do it. This makes Curri a better experience for gig workers.
When you join the Curri fleet, you play an important role in our business. Our drivers are an essential part of giving our customers the best experience, and we treat you as such.
