About Us

Our mission is to build a marketplace that not only benefits business owners but provides fair wages to freelancers across the globe. 

Where it all started

In 2015, owner & founder Yassine Jouichate launched Surplus Hands with a mission to provide US based virtual assistants to small business owners. As a leader in the entrepreneur space, Yassine experienced a lack of access to experienced, trustable freelancers. With that in mind, we transitioned to a marketplace of freelancers to help business owners find the right talent and provide freelancers with direct access to clients. With this model, our freelancers will receive their desired compensation for work they complete satisfactory to the clients’ needs. Considering our escrow model as well, this not only protects clients but also our community of trusted freelancers.
