Whoa, Who's That Behind Freeya's Social?
Hey Freeya Fam! 🌟 It's me, Nadya, your go-to gal for all things social at Freeya.
When not spreading the Freeya love you can find me managing projects at a local Portland, ad agency. While I now call Portland home. I grew up in Alaska and have lived all across the PNW.
I’m highly enthusiastic about all things FREE (or second hand!). Who doesn’t love a steal of a deal, am I right? My favorite item(s) that I’ve scored for free are cute mugs (check the post ), a sideboard - dreamy, and snow chains!
I love how Freeya prevents usable items from reaching landfills and directly connects them with people in your community, maybe even your neighbor(!), ensuring they find a new purpose.
From one gal easily distracted by free stuff to you, consider this an invitation to chat, share, and make Freeya even more amazing together!
Meet our App Developers, Silverpine!
In the realm of technology and innovation, creativity is the name of the game. For Portland's very own Silverpine, a software company, it's the driving force behind their remarkable work. What truly sets Silverpine apart is their knack for making the complex seem simple.
With over two decades of experience Silverpine’s team of engineers, designers, and imaginative problem-solvers transform innovative ideas into user-friendly apps. With a strong focus on enhancing lives, they've taken our vision for Freeya and made it a reality, reshaping the idea of community sharing.
In the (almost) two years we've been working with Silverpine, they've helped us merge technology with community values. Their experiential insights have guided us through tricky technical challenges.
They've not only made building an app look easy, but they've also made it enjoyable. It’s been a dream to partner with Silverpine!
