Organizations need Experience more than ever

They need a new way dreaming, designing and delivering the experiences that unlock value. The Experience Alchemists are a community of independent professionals committed to helping clients thrive through the creation of brand-defining experiences.

Come grow with us.

If we’re learning anything from our new remote working, remote-everything world...it’s that experience matters.

Whether it’s online meetings, online ordering, online education, online health, online payments, online...anything...experience has become a primary differentiating factor for leaders and a critical need for laggards. Join the Experience Alchemists and become part of a community of Experience Professionals helping organizations imagine, design and deliver the experiences they need. Clients need help in developing their experience strategies, designs and implementation paths and they need skilled professionals that know how to work remotely, with flexibility, imagination and courage.

Who are the Experience Alchemists?

For, well, EVER clients have been stuck in an agency/consultancy model that puts layers of noise between them and the people that will help them solve their Experience challenges. The Experience Alchemists break that model, and we are looking for the dreamers, the doers, the pragmatists and misfits that make up the beautiful stew of skills and personalities we need. Let our industry ties connect you to enterprise clients large and small that need your skills and experience. Be among the first to join the Experience Alchemists, become an endorsed member of our talent network, and become part of the new way forward.

Join other Experience experts in a community organized by industry veterans who are entirely dedicated to connecting community members to the work you want to do, without sacrificing your independence. It costs nothing to join and is funded by a fee on billings for projects you deliver as a community member. You set your billable rate, we include the fee, collect on your behalf, and you get paid.

What are the MBO Platform and the MBO marketplace?

The MBO Platform is MBO Partners’ product suite for individuals in the growing independent economy. The Platform's tools and services enable Independents and their Clients to do business together, safely and easily. The MBO marketplace is one component of the platform, where dozens of the Fortune 500, and other large enterprises, go to find independent talent. Find new opportunities in the project listings and gain a competitive edge with a professional profile that highlights your expertise and gets you noticed!

As a member of the Experience Alchemists community, you’re never alone

When you’re a traditional, full time employee, it’s easy to get help when you need it. But when you’re working for the man, you give up control over what you do, who you do it for, when you do it, and what you can charge for your expertise. That’s why being an independent is so attractive.

You know you’re great at what you do, but there are only 24 hours in the day to do it. What if:

  • You had people to bounce ideas off of, and pitch work with?
  • A second pair of eyes to review deliverables?
  • Someone to help you get ready for a meeting with a prospect?
  • Someone who’s “done it before” and can collaborate with you?

The Experience Alchemists Community is the answer: Join a network of the best independent professionals like you, focused on delivering customer experience projects.

Since the entire community is vetted by its organizers and connected through the platform, you’ll have access to the best talent in the business, when you need them.

Need a killer UI designer to pull your app interface out of a ditch? He’s available next week.

Oops...forgot you should have someone do a quick crunch through your web analytics data and google adwords to help the designer know where to focus? She’s coming free tomorrow.

Found a great project opportunity and need a referral to the manager? No problem—she used to work for the Community Mayor, who will make the connection and vouch for your expertise.

Have a great rolodex with lots of demand for work? Here’s your bench to deliver what you sell.
