Below is our recent interview with Rebecca Noble, from Ubii:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Ubii?
A: Ubii is an app that is connecting our communities and helping people find jobs. Our Simple Model: Hire pros for free in ANY industry or list your services and pay just $5 if you accept a job request! That’s it, no hidden fees, no nonsense!
We launched our app in February and Our provider network is growing rapidly with over 2,500 services to choose from in the South Florida area. We have essentially given any company the ability to be on-demand using our platform. When you go to Ubii you can see the providers profiles and know their star rating, their pricing and if they are available for immediate or scheduled jobs. You can also see pictures of their work before you send them a job request and all of our providers are background checked. We have figured out a way to bring a very social aspect to the service industry.
Q: Can you tell us something more about your recent announcement?
A: Covid-19 is having an overwhelming effect on every sector of the economy, with negative financial impact to millions of families in America. People need solutions and we felt that, while fairly new, Ubii can help TODAY. We are ready, willing and able to make our online platform available to those seeking employment and looking to make extra money with the skills they have. That is why we developed the Get2Work Relief Program and look forward to making a positive difference in the communities we serve.
Waiving All Fees: (no background check fees, no set up fees and no connection fees until July 2020)

Q: What are the key benefits of using your marketplace?
A: For the Service Seeker:
• Free and easy tool to find thousands of services and select rated and background-checked SPs
• YOU choose and connected directly with the SP without intermediation
• Our Star rating is real – you can only leave a rating if you have actually used the service.
For the Service Provider:
• An easy to use business listing with no monthly fees
• We make your business “On-Demand” so you can be discovered by new customers
• You set your own prices and accept payment directly from the service seeker because no portion of your fees are taken. No purchase of credits required, no bidding, pay only when connected to someone who requested you
You can also hit the switch role button and become a service seeker.
Q: What’s the best thing about Ubii that people might not know about?
A: Ubii can be used as a tool to find full time work and can also supplement income with gig work. Just turn on your availability when you are ready to work.
