The Remote Freelancer

List of community-curated resources to find topical remote freelance & contract work for software developers, web designers, and more!


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! If PRs come in quite regularly, I'll bother to create a website and backend for it.

Also, if anyone would like to make a proper logo for this, I'd be eternally grateful. I whipped this one together using VennGage.

Thank you for looking :) Good hunting!
