Microtask is a distributed work expert founded in 2009 by four Finnish serial entrepreneurs. We have offices in Helsinki, Tampere and San Francisco. Our investors include Sunstone Capital and strategic private investors.
Our services are based on our proprietary software platform, which automatically splits work assignments into tiny pieces and distributes them to our digital workers around the world. Our first application area is document processing and data entry, which typically require large amounts of menial and repetitive work such as typing in forms, fixing scanning results and verifying data.
