About Contra

Contra is a professional network for the independent digital workforce. Digital professionals use Contra to create stunning visual profiles, earn money commission-free, and build high-quality professional communities and referral networks. Contra was started by a group of independents who were tired of existing professional networks that are blind to the needs of digital professionals. We’re creating a new way to work for the independent digital workforce.
