Be a hero. Changing lives starts here.
On average, hiring a virtual assistant saves people 14.7 hours per week. That’s because a good bilingual “VA” can help with social media, graphic design, customer service, copywriting, digital marketing — or just about anything else that can be done on a computer.
But in hiring remote you’re not just making a smart business decision. You’re also changing a life.
Created as a response to the Venezuelan refugee crisis, iWorker’s mission is to help compassionate entrepreneurs hire talented remote workers from countries in crisis.
Most of our team, 65% of whom are women, support multiple family members with the income they get from working online.

How can a virtual assistant help me?
Made famous in best-selling books like Tim Ferriss’s The Four-Hour Workweek, hiring a bilingual virtual assistant can help you to:
- Get things off your plate that you just don’t like doing
- Dramatically reduce busywork
- Delegate day-to-day projects and save you hours of time every week
- Get professional help for your business without breaking the bank
- Help you to scale your business
But, wait, are the workers actually any good?
iWorker is a very selective hiring agency, accepting just 3% of applicants. This ensures that we can line you up with the top talent at a great hourly rate.
We look for:
- Skilled, bilingual remote professionals
- College or graduate degrees
- Experience working internationally
- Reliability + strong communication skills
iWorker was founded to do something real and direct about the Venezuelan crisis, where nearly 90% of the population lives in poverty and faces regular shortages of food and medicine.
The goal? To generate stable, well-paid, dignified work for talented Venezuelan professionals. iWorker has since expanded out to include remote workers from other countries in crisis, like Uganda and Nicaragua.
To date, iWorker has helped generate over 5 million dollars of revenue for its workers.
What sets us apart from Fiverr or Upwork?
Many of our clients used Upwork or Fiverr at one point and then moved over to iWorker. Why?
- Social impact. Through iWorker, you’re hiring someone directly from a country in crisis (like Venezuela or Nicaragua) or another developing country where the need is strong and your employment will change lives.
- Empowerment of women. 65% of our workforce is women and narrowing gender inequalities in developing countries is at the heart of what you help to accomplish when hiring through iWorker.
- The right person picked for you. Unlike Upwork or Fiverr, where you’ll need to wade through dozens of applications, we analyze your needs and pick someone we know, trust ourselves, and believe will be the perfect fit for you.
- Legit customer support. We’re available 24/7, and our co-founder Enrique is always happy to jump on a call.
How much do you charge?
We have a simple, pay-as-you go model.
We charge a flat rate of $5.99-$6.99 per hour for our tier 1 and tier 2 virtual assistants. If you want to hire for a more specialized position (digital marketers, copywriters, web developers), we charge just a few dollars more per hour.
So you pay for the hours you use and that’s it. There are no other fees or long-term contracts.
How competitive are iWorker's wages?
iWorker is a social enterprise with social impact as its goal.
The US dollar goes a long way in developing countries. The wages received by our team ($800-$2,000/month) are significantly above local wages, providing some of the highest wages to be found in countries where jobs are often non-existent or pay an average of $200-$300/month.
As an indication of this, iWorker’s long-term retention of workers is higher than 96%, suggesting how valuable a stable job earning in USD is in the countries from which we hire. In addition, iWorker provides the ability for its team to work online from home and avoid long and sometimes dangerous commutes.
Many of our workers also refer their friends, siblings, and even sometimes their parents to work with us!
They don't just wait to be told to do something. They are engaged in driving the business themselves.
