How it all started
Malt is the story of two visionary entrepreneurs, equally passionate about the latest tech trends and developments in the digital world, joining forces to spark rapid innovation. But they quickly learned that keeping up with the speed of innovation is an uphill battle, especially when you don't have easy access to the right talent to tackle this kind of meaningful, value-driving work.
Before becoming the CEO and CTO of Malt, respectively, Vincent Huguet, a successful e-commerce startup founder, and Hugo Lassiège, a freelance developer and founder of the Lateral Thoughts tech community, met in 2012 to discuss a problem faced by practically every company in existence today: The challenge of finding expert freelancers to propel their projects forward with speed, agility, and efficiency.
A year later, Malt was born, officially kicking off a movement to change how the world works. The goal was to transform the intellectual services industry, once dominated by agencies and consulting firms, in the face of an emerging and fast-growing freelance community across Europe. It was clear that these freelancers needed a better, easier, and more transparent way to build, promote, and grow their businesses.
And today, Malt is home to over 360,000 freelancers and more than 50,000 registered companies in Europe.

Our values guide everything we do
It takes a community
They say it takes a village. But at Malt, it takes a community. We care about each other and believe in sharing – whether it’s about sharing our knowledge, our networks, or even a good meal, there is always room at our table.
Ambition is the way
Our goal is to make a big, positive impact on the world of work. But we know it can only happen one step at a time. That's why we take the time to celebrate our victories and then get ready for the next challenge ahead.
Own your choices
Malters are free to act with autonomy, take smart risks, and work in the best way they know how. This allows us, as a company, to be stronger than the sum of our individual parts. We are not afraid to address challenges head-on. We go fast, we learn, and we always aim to do better.
Joy is our secret sauce
Joy is a habit – and we are addicted to it. Just like we are all addicted to karaoke. We believe in putting a little bit of cheer into everything we do. After all, achieving success is a lot easier when you have an optimistic, can-do attitude.
