New Albany resident Rick Gonzalez is Founder & CEO of RoamHR, a digital platform serving the growing number of Americans who earn the majority of their income through self-employment. The following is how RoamHR summarizes its services and benefits:

“RoamHR makes it easy to be self-employed. We act as the human resources and benefits department for those that don’t have one, easing the financial stress and building confidence in tens of millions struggling free-lance and gig-economy workers.

Our product gives customers a dedicated, secure tax savings account that they control right from their phone. It quickly identifies income and sets up automated rules to set aside just the right amount of tax withholdings.
