We asked Heep's co-founders, Andrew Bondarenko, Inspektor Pidozra, and Julia Lukashuk, about building a freelance platform app for no-code, low-code, and automation experts. Andrew has been building with Bubble for the last five years. He previously co-founded a service company that actively promoted no-code and Bubble among their customers. The Heep team chose Bubble because the no-code platform allowed them to have complete control over the look and feel of their app.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
Heep is a freelance platform for no-code, low-code and automation experts.
We help power users of no-code apps (Bubble, Webflow, Airtable, 20+ others) to monetize their expertise and connect them to customers looking for help.
How does your app work?
As an expert, you can create a portfolio, showcase your experience with projects, and list the services you provide. You can share your portfolio with your network or get listed inside a tool-specific micro-marketplace like https://heep.so/l/bubble
As a customer, you can message experts you like directly or post a project and get matched with the right expert available in the next 48 hours.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
I have been building with Bubble for the last five years. Previously I co-founded a service company where we actively promoted no-code and Bubble among our customers and delivered over $500K worth of projects with it. We have realized the potential of no-code and understood that for it to be widely adopted by business customers, there needs to be a reliable talent marketplace that customers can tap into. I decided to build it.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
Bubble allows you to have complete control over the look and feel of your app, and you can build practically anything. Other platforms focus on specific use cases, but Bubble is excellent when creating something unique.
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
Three months since our launch we have 200 experts on board that received $100K worth of customer projects through Heep.
What are your next steps or future plans for your app?
We are currently trying to learn as much as possible from our current users and transform this learning into a better product experience. We are about to release some more features that simplify being a freelancer and getting paid. Our goal is to help unlock no-code for mainstream customers, and there is a lot to be done for this to happen.
