Welcome To Deep Work


Deep Work aims to provide organizations and freelancers with a cooperative framework that reduces operational costs, supports fair profit distribution and fosters a motivated, health-first working culture.

Operational principles

Deep Work is a unique organization that operates like a mix between an open online community of volunteers and a quality-controlled profitable business. It is based on the assumption that humans should be free to choose what to work on and with whom. A set of considerations that makes this freedom possible while remaining profitable is listed in How we work.

If you're interested in our organizational design, you can read about it in this Organizational Design Playbook.

Individual autonomy

If you are interested in working with us, you need to be proactive about reaching out to other community members or experts and be specific about your requests. This requires you to understand yourself, your goals, and your values.

There are no formal applications and collaborations are based on relationships between autonomous individuals who trust each other.

Project-based work and volunteering

Paid projects have teams where team members usually already know each other. All other projects are on a volunteering basis but present an opportunity to display your skills or work with other talented people.
