This repo was inspired by this Hacker News thread about one software developer's experience with Upwork. For all those who have had bad experiences with Upwork, I wanted to create a list of additional resources that software developers can use to find freelance, nomadic and contract work.


Please please please contribute to the list! If you have freelance work available or know someone who does, feel free to open a pull request to augment this list!

Thank you for looking :) Good hunting!

Differences betwteen types

Clients Jobs Agency
Interaction with Clients You interaction is with clients directly, organization does little/no communication with clients You interact with employers directly, organization does little/no communication with clients Organization handles clients and just gives you work. You have little/no interaction with clients
Control over working environment Generally you can work however, using own tools, supplies, set own hours, etc Employer controls how you work generally. Provides tools, sets hours, tasks, etc. Agency might direct you on what tasks to do but you have flexibility on how to accomplish them
Payment Client pays you, but through the organization (which may takes its cut) Employer pays you salary (withholding taxes) Agency pays you
