We believe that we are at a pivotal moment in time, where the future of work is here and we have an opportunity to be at the forefront of it.”
Fiverr, a freelance services marketplace, has been testing advertising on national TV and streaming platforms since summer and has been seeing positive signals, inspiring the Super Bowl ad buy.

We can’t wait to introduce the world to our brand in a new and exciting way, while showcasing how valuable the company is to businesses that want to get things done.”
