What Are the Best Freelancing Sites for Coders?

Freelancing is the new way to organize the world’s talents. The appearance of big freelancing platforms made it possible to exchange talent efficiently—across borders, currencies, and niches.

You can watch the following video as you go through the article:

This article is for you if:

Above-The-Fold Freelancing Sites for Coders

Upwork

Upwork places a great focus on quality. This is great for clients because it ensures that their work will get delivered—without compromising quality.

For freelancers just starting out, Upwork poses a significant barrier of entry—oftentimes, new profiles will get rejected by the Upwork team. They want to ensure that only clients who take their freelancing jobs seriously will start out on their platform.

However, the relatively high barrier of entry also protects established freelancers on the Upwork platform from too much competition. There is no price dumping because of low-quality offers which ultimately benefits all market participants.

Fiverr

Fiverr initially started out as a platform where you could buy and sell small gigs worth five bucks. However, in the meantime it grew to a full-fledged freelancing platform where people earn six-figure incomes.

Many jobs earn hundreds of Dollars per hour and many freelancers make a killing—especially in attractive industries such as programming, machine learning, and data science.

Toptal

Toptal has a strong market proposition: it’s the platform with the top 3% of freelancers. Hence, it connects high-quality freelancers with high-quality clients.

It’s extremely hard to become a freelancer at Toptal: 97% of the applicants will not enter the platform. However, if you manage to join Toptal, you can greatly benefit with the best-in-class hourly rates. You can easily earn $100 per hour and beyond.

Also, the high barrier of entry ensures that the freelancer stays the valuable resource—he or she doesn’t become a commodity like on other freelancer platforms.

If you are an upcoming freelancer, you should aim for joining Toptal one day. Here’s a great freelancer course that shows you a crystal-clear path towards becoming a highly-paid freelancer.

Freelancer.com

Freelancer.com is the go-to resource for beginners with very low barrier of entry and opportunities for everyone. This is the recommended starting point to gain experience and finish your first projects. Also, it can help you gain your first testimonials—while getting paid for learning and polishing your skills.

It’s a great site with countless freelancing projects. A great resource is the archived freelancing projects which help you get some real-world projects for training purposes.

For freelance programmers, I have compiled a list of ten practical freelancing projects to help you get started on this article. These projects are real projects which were completed by real freelancers for real money. So they are as practical as they can get.

Freelance Developer Sites — Ranked By Size

There are literally hundreds of websites over which you can find more or less attractive freelancing gigs (as a developer). But which one to choose? A good way is to approach the problem pragmatically: rank the websites by traffic rank and start at the top (source). At least you now know which sites are likely to attract more clients!

Behance, part of the Adobe family, is the leading online platform to showcase & discover creative work. 

Creative people around the world join Behance, entering a community made with their original work and creative process in mind. Here, users showcase their work in the form of profiles comprised of Projects. 

A Project is a grouping of images, videos, and other digital content with a related theme or process. Every project has a unique URL that can be shared across the web, as well as a View and Appreciation counter so you can track how many people have seen your project and given you kudos on a job well done. Here is an example of a Project created by the Behance Design Team.

Behance members can Follow your profile and you can, in turn, follow other users. When you Follow someone, their updates (projects they’ve uploaded, Appreciated, or Added to a Moodboard) appear in your For You feed.

The For You feed is the home screen for signed-in Behance creatives. As you follow more profiles, you’ll start to see more projects appear in your feed. To view a Project that appears in your For You feed, simply click the Project Cover and the full contents of the project will open for you to view.

Gun.io

Alexa Rank #152,950

Gun.io was founded on the simple idea that when it comes to freelancing, hiring and being hired should be based on merit.

Picture it: the precipice of the gig economy. Freelance marketplaces popping up across the horizon like dandelions in spring. But under the hood of those marketplaces are bidding wars that overwhelmingly result in low-paid work and poor results for clients.

Enter: our founders, freelancers, trying to get paid on said marketplaces.

They quickly realized that two groups of people weren’t winning on these platforms: senior developers who are experts in their craft, and companies seeking to hire these experts. So, they built a platform to connect companies with vetted freelance talent, committed to helping freelancers compete on merit, not rate.

Finxter

Alexa Rank #159,876

Coding is like learning a new language. You improve by listening to and expressing yourself in the new language. A core language skill is to understand words quickly. Likewise, a core programming skill is to understand code quickly.

Finxter teaches you rapid code understanding. It teaches you to see beyond the code. When we are done with you, the meaning of a code snippet will unfold like words from your mother’s tongue. At this point, consider yourself a code master.

Becoming a code master is what we at Finxter want for you. Furthermore, we want you to achieve this with minimal effort only by committing to a simple process. We know: If you are like most of our users, you can not commit full-time to learning to code.

Fortunately, this is not needed. A small habit is much better than a great event. Learn 5 minutes every day and not a single whole weekend. True learning is a process, not an event.

To help you reach your goal on the side, we have created the Finxter loop, a daily 5-minute habit. Solve a puzzle a day and enjoy the release of endorphins into your brain when solving it. Commit to this single habit and your Python skills will expand rapidly.

Finxter also has a lot of learning resources on how to build your six-figure coding business:

Our Mission is to power seamless on-demand work.

Our Story

During our time at Bain & Company, we saw the power of contingent workers and consultants as a means to get support and expertise to supercharge organisations and create real change.

At that time, corporations lacked the ability to easily augment staff, build handpicked consultant teams, hire top individual short-term talent and engage with subject matter experts and boutique firms. They were also unable to have these elite business professionals available for deployment within days, not weeks.

Simultaneously, we noticed that more freelancers and firms in management, finance, marketing, HR, sales, operations and technology wanted to have more flexibility and choice in the way they work and with whom they work.

General Freelancing Sites

Of course, there are a lot more general freelancing websites. I will list a few of them in the following:

Also, if you are looking for specialized freelancing platforms, you should look a bit further. For example, an excellent way of offering your writing services is:

iWriter

The best site for finding designers (and offering your design services) is:

99Designs

The best site for offering your programming services is:

Twago

Conclusions

The general freelancing sites such as Upwork, Toptal, and Fiverr are good enough for most cases.

In any case, you should focus on one platform and master it rather than hopping back and forth — all of those platforms have a strong “winner-takes-it-all” bias. So it’s much better to have many good ratings on one platform than to have a few good ratings on many platforms.
