About Us

The Word Karya

Noun. karya. work, product; the result of effort. a literary, artistic, or intellectual production.

Karya was conceived with the idea that people have a choice, and more often than not, they will choose work that can make a positive impact on the world.

This is why we have created the best place for engineers and scientists to find meaningful work and for companies to be introduced to individuals with a passion for making a difference.

For Companies

Companies who wish to hire members from our talent platform.


Submit an Initiative

Tell us what you need and why, your ideal timeline, and a budget if you have it. Our industry experts will be on hand if we need additional information or if you need support.


Review Proposal

We’ll present our best matches within 72 hours. Endorsed by Karya and specifically qualified to fulfill your needs. You can interview the proposed members, provide feedback from your team and we can provide revisions if necessary.



Once you have accepted the proposal, we handle all the logistics, contracts, and onboarding. You can expect to be working with our members within days. In this meeting, we’ll agree on a target date if you need additional background checks or clearance.


Kick-Off Meeting

Start working with your Karya member. We are happy to join a kick-off meeting, stay close on the sidelines, or provide as little or as much support as you’d like throughout the initiative. Easy admin, billing, and reporting to ensure you are in complete control.


Ongoing Support

At Karya, we take an active approach in supporting members and partner companies throughout their initiatives.  We provide training, feedback and performance management when necessary and will do as much as possible to ensure a positive outcome. 



When the initiative is complete we manage our members and partner companies throughout a seamless offboarding process.



We offer a limited number of strategic partners the opportunity to access and engage with an unlimited number of Karya Members for a flat monthly fee. Choose how much or little support you need from us. Payroll will be done at cost with no markup from Karya.

Service Fee

Recommended for fixed-cost projects. Once you select member(s) to start working on an initiative, you simply pay a deposit to get started, the second installment halfway through, and the final payment upon completion. Karya’s will charge a 20% service fee.


Let us take care of everything. Once we have your requirements, Karya will deliver a shortlist of Karya members and facilitate interviews and onboarding while also taking care of compliance and payroll. Transparent billing, where you only pay for approved hours worked.
