What we offer
Fair Job Postings
At the heart of Uplink are our job postings. Most of them come directly from the clients themselves, since we only work with a handful of selected recruiters. Each posting has detailed information about the work to be done, the required skills, onsite/remote preference, and offered rate. Applying to a job takes only a minute and happens directly in our Slack.Read more
Active Online Community
All our members get access to our Slack, which is our “club house” and the place where all threads come together. Apart from checking out the job postings, our members discuss their everyday freelancer life, exchange tips for finding a good tax accountant and lawyer, get feedback on job offers from clients and recruiting companies, or help each other out with technical questions.Read more
Meetups & Events
Our goal is to make it super-easy for you to meet other IT freelancers from your city in a relaxed atmosphere! In Berlin, we have been organizing monthly “craft beer” meetups since 2017. All members are invited to one of the many local craft beer bars and we pay for the first drinks! No talks, no agenda, just tasty drinks, nice people, and interesting conversations! Similar meetups in other cities and other event formats are planned as well.Read more
Services & Cooperations
We are always on the lookout for online and offline services that might be interesting to our members! Many providers are happy to offer considerable discounts to Uplink members. Moreover, we have many ideas for services that we want to launch ourselves. The first one was our Contract Check which lets you get a recruiter contract checked by an experienced lawyer for a fixed fee. More services will follow soon!Read more
