CrowdHire = crowdfunding + hiring

  [vote for,

Market: Opensource developments of coding, that can work on a steady salary rather than one big lump sum.

1. A project concept is started.

2. Job application opens.

3. Each applicants state their resume, experience, and price.

4. Funders join and commit a weekly or monthly payment, that can either be for a certain number of months for small project, or indefinitely if the project is ongoing. ( A certain amount needs to be locked into a pool before commencing)

5. Funders vote in two stages ( lower house is '1 dollar per vote', upper house is '1 person per vote') to choose candidate.

6. A team or individual is then selected from the pool of candidates to take on the job.


Once a person is selected, the funder's money is locked into a pool, to be payed out as a constant salary.

If during anytime, enough funders push the fire button, the project is then cancelled, and the remaining funds is released.

This provides a bit of incentive for the workers to show results each month.


Could possibly allow for democratic decision to hire more people etc...

not quite this idea, but similar. This ones lets you fund individuals, rather than for a project. [mofosyne, Sep 22 2014]

       It also provides incentive for the workers to baffle 'em with bullshit.
