Deciding on the software development methodology in the online gig economy project is critical due to indirect communication and limited time. Each methodology has its weaknesses and strengths in the design and operation. The accuracy in choosing the methodology will reduce time and costs, minimize excess and risk exposure, manage uncertainty, improve quality, improve client relationships, and provide better tracking and control projects. Inaccurate software development methodology selection can impact longer project development time, assignment mismatches, design errors, and project failure. This research performed Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to decompose people's perception quantitatively through an online questionnaire with 15 gig workers in the software development area. This research found Requirement on a project as the highest priority when developing software in the online gig economy, followed by User Involvement, Documentation, and Personnel. Meanwhile, Requirement Clarity got the most prioritized sub-factors in Requirement. Therefore, clients and gig workers should clarify all project requirements since they will not physically meet during the project.
