How it works
Post your project for free
We publish your project in our community and interested candidates apply with information about their experience, skills, and rate.
Receive candidate profiles
We vet each candidate individually and introduce those ones to you that best match the requirements of your project.
Schedule an interview
You review each candidate's profile and schedule a phone or in-person interview with only a few clicks using our online tool.
Get to work!
Once you come to an agreement with the freelancer, work can begin! Contract signing and invoicing is handled directly by the freelancer.
Our service is free for companies.
From publishing your request in our community, screening and introducing matching candidates, to finally working with the freelancer - you won’t have to pay Uplink a cent!
This has the advantage, that there is no contract to sign with us. We put you in touch with the freelancer and you sign a contract directly with them.
Our service is funded by a fair fee (10% for max. 6 months), that we charge the freelancer once they find a new client through Uplink.
No unfair contracts - no restrictive clauses - no intransparent fees
