An active freelancer
A small company without projects
This is how it works:
Get in touch
Whether you’re already a crackerjack freelancer or just considering becoming one – we have both the tools and the enthusiasm to help you, every step of the way.
Let's get to know each other
We’d love to hear who you are, where you come from, and what you prefer to do. By giving us a few details (like your ideal field, technologies, project length and location), we’ll be able to find you projects that suit you best.
Wait for it
We’ll snoop around and see what’s out there. Meanwhile, you can just kick back: we’ll find and present you the projects that match your criteria and skill set.
Pick a project
When a certain project sparks your interest, we’ll get you in contact with the client. We’ll also help you prep for meetings and answer all legal and contractual questions you might have.

You’re in charge of determining your hourly rate and invoicing us at the end of each month. We’ll pay you within 14 days, so no need to worry about invoicing the client yourself.

What kind of projects does Talented have?
Hourly rate and invoicing?
I launched my freelance career with Talented and had a project to work on from the very first day of starting my company. It was a painless transition from employment to entrepreneurship.
One of the big benefits of working through Talented is that they pay the freelancer on 14-day terms. No more calls to the client’s accounts department to chase up late payments.
Talented acquires interesting and tailored projects without me having to spend time and effort on sales. This way I can focus on my work while my agent does the project hunting.
Talented helped us to find our two-man company’s first project. We can focus on the work itself, instead of doing sales and marketing for our newly established company.
Projects you actually want to work on.
Freelance work is smooth sailing when the client organization believes in modern ways of working. We’ve chosen all our 150+ partner companies based on their developer-friendliness. We collect feedback from our community to ensure that it’s real and not just big talk.
We don’t believe in workplace pecking orders and are huge advocates for a self-directive way of working. Our partners, who strongly agree with us, include small startups, game companies, consultancies and large listed companies. Who would you like to work with next?
