What differentiates Uplink from other freelancer platforms?

Our platform and processes are very different from other platforms in these four areas:

Freelancers apply actively

You publish your projects in our community and our freelancers apply for them. This way you know immediately that these candidates are available and interested in the project, and you save valuable time in active sourcing.

Curated freelancer pool

Every member of our community has actively applied for membership and has been accepted by us. We make sure that only full-time freelancers with permanent residence in the DACH region join our community.

Real community

We have spent years building an active and lively freelancer community through events, webinars and professional online discussions! You benefit from this because our members love working freelance and have a corresponding mindset.

Efficient processes

Our platform was designed from the bottom up with usability and automation in mind. Whether you manage a single project with only a few candidates or dozens of projects with many candidates - our software helps you to never lose track and keep everything under control!

How can you become a Recruiting Partner?

We take great care to ensure that our Recruiting Partners match the principles of the Uplink community. It does not matter whether you are a single recruiter, work in a team, or are part of a larger company.

You are a good fit for us if you:

  • have attractive projects in the IT sector (min. 75€ hourly rate) on offer,
  • represent the interests of the freelancers as well as those of your clients, i.e. you're not exclusively focused on maximizing your commission,
  • communicate quickly and professionally with candidates and keep them informed throughout the process, and
  • are able to understand and communicate the technical requirements of your projects.

What are the costs?

The Uplink platform is completely free of charge for our recruiting partners.
There are no costs for publishing as many jobs as you like or for contacting candidates.
