      I’ve used UpWork to hire several freelancers as well as to find freelance work. They’ve taken great strides in helping those that do good work stand out. The big downside comes with pricing as they charge clients a percentage on top of whatever is agreed with a freelancer and they also take a pretty hefty percentage from freelancers to start (20% until $500 in billables, then 10% until 10,000 in billables, and then 5% - this fee structure is per client).

      UpWorks makes it easy to hire people on a project-basis. Have used it several times to hire developers and translators.
