Find freelancers and freelance jobs on Upwork - the world's largest online workplace where savvy businesses and professional freelancers go to work! Welcome to the world's largest online workplace, where 1+ million companies hire freelancers to get the job done.
Upwork is a leading online workplace—helping businesses find, manage, and pay freelance talent. Our large-scale staffing solutions are used by companies of all sizes, from scrappy startups to Fortune 500s.
Our story begins with two leading pioneers in online work: Elance and oDesk. Each had created thriving global communities with separate paths to success. In 2014 we realized that we could do more together and merged to form Elance-oDesk, combining ideas, technology and resources.
As we formed a shared vision, we saw that our impact would be even greater if we focused on building one great workplace. With the oDesk platform as the foundation, we kept the best of both legacies and added new innovations. In 2015 we re-launched the company as Upwork, representing a renewed vision and commitment to creating the world’s best online workplace – for existing and future customers alike.
Today, Upwork is the premier platform for top companies to hire and work with the world’s most talented independent professionals. We’re creating a world of unmatched talent and opportunity, where global teammates who are thousands of miles apart can work together seamlessly.
Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Upwork is an American job board for freelancers;
- The site is visually stunning but it is not very descriptive and it is difficult to know where to find the job search engine
- On the homepage there are lots of quotes from clients satisfied with the service but I still cannot find the job section
- To browse jobs you have to choose a criteria first which makes the whole process rather slow
- This is a rather confusing site and I do not think they have fully explained how to use the service
