If you’re only about to deep-dive into the world of entrepreneurship, we’ll equip you with what you need. For information on starting and running a business in Finland, check our Developer's guide to freelancing in Finland.
This is how it works:
Get in touch
Whether you’re already a crackerjack independent software contractor 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
Tell us what kind of projects you’d prefer (ideal field, technologies, project length and location) so our agents will be able to look for projects that suit you the best.
Our agents will search and present you the projects that match your criteria and skill set. 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.
Name your price
You’re in charge of determining your hourly rate and invoicing us at the end of each month. Talented will invoice the client.
If you’d like to discuss entrepreneurship or market prospects, we’re here for you. We can e.g.provide tips on what sorts of skills you might want to acquire for the future.

Find your next project
We have millions euros worth of onsite and remote projects up for grabs for freelance software professionals and designers on weekly basis. The projects are normally 6+ month long with 100% allocation, but as always, there are exceptions.
Check available projects and let us know if you find something that sparks your interest. Our agents will gladly tell you more about the gigs and if you wish, connect you with the client.
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.
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 allows me to focus on doing my best job for the client. That’s my most important goal with freelancing.
All in all, I have a very positive feeling about Talented. It feels like they really want to know you as a person and find you the perfect project. It also feels really good as a sole trader to have one shield between you and the client, to have Talented to secure you.
