General freelance job websites
Not sure what industry you want to break into yet? I completely understand. If you’re a generalist like me, with skills that span a broad spectrum of industries, it can be difficult to zero in on one career path.
Take a look at the following freelance job sites to begin with. They cater to a wide range of industries. One may just pique your interest.
FlexJobs is a well-known job website offering job postings from many popular companies. It is geared towards Freelancers, Remote workers and those looking for more flexible work options that differ from the standard 9-5.
One of the key points of value for this site, is the job listings are all hand screened. This ensures there are no scams, ads and dodgy links.
The subscription options go from $14.99 per month to $29.95 ever quarter and $49.95 per year.
2. Power to Fly
Founded in 2014 Power to Fly aims to connect Fortune 500 companies and growing startups with women looking for more flexible and diverse companies who value inclusion and gender diversity.
Their job board lists positions in:
- Product and design
- Sales and marketing
And many other categories, including remote and international jobs.
Along with featuring key companies, they offer Career Advice, Events, Video Chats and Coaching sessions geared towards helping you secure the right job for you.
SolidGigs is something a little different. A product of Millo who have been helping freelancers for over a decade, their team hand-picks from multiple jobs boards every day to send you the top 1% of jobs available.
The site also has a huge library of training and education resources gathered from some of the best minds in freelancing and solopreneurship. You can sign up and try out the service for $2. Then after that, the price is $19 every month but you can cancel at any time.
Pangian is a website devoted to job seekers looking for fully remote positions. Their job board is updated daily with offerings from the likes of GitHub, Zapier and other well known fully distributed companies.
It’s free to browse and apply for jobs on Pangian, however access to so-called ‘Pro Jobs’, requires an annual subscription of €7.50 monthly.
Fiverr is more of an entry-level platform where freelancers advertise jobs they will complete starting from $5. The competition is fierce, however many freelancers have seen success by utilising tiers which go well above the $5 base price.
Workroll is a straightforward job board where you can find careers from marketing and developing to retail and design work.
You can filter job listings based on full-time, part-time, remote and non-remote contracts. Furthermore, you can sign up for notifications of new jobs.
7. Underwear Worker
Underwear Worker is a less conventional job site with the aim of helping those of us looking to work remotely (or in our underwear). Engineers, Designers, Analysts and Support gurus can find plenty of positions to sift through.
Not only can you create your own profile and receive email updates of new jobs, but the filtering options are also impressive too.
Upwork is one of the many job sites where freelancers need to bid on job listings. The idea is you pitch your proposal to a particular job and the employer chooses which pitch succeeds. In turn, the successful pitch or bid lands the job.
Freelancers should be warned that Upwork will take a 20% cut of your earnings until you have an established relationship with a client.
CloudPeeps is a more exclusive platform for connecting clients and freelancers. It can be hard to join yet the calibre of work is much higher if you do manage to get accepted.
Clients post jobs and freelancers can then send their hand-crafted proposals in order to compete for the job.
It should be noted that how many proposals you can send is limited. This can be increased by purchasing one of the subscription options ranging from $9 to $29 per month.
It’s likely that you’re already familiar with Indeed. This is a website that collects all the jobs on the internet and lists them all in one place.
The advanced search function makes it easier to drill-down into the type of work you’re looking for and the quick once click application option is super helpful. Simply upload your CV and it’s there waiting for your next application.
11. College Recruiter
If you’re a student or newly graduated, College Recruiter is a great resource. Browsing this website will furnish you with the type of freelance and part-time jobs available related to your field of study.
These are entry-level positions yet they’re ideal for getting a foot in the door towards gaining experience and more serious contracts.
Another site where you compete with other freelancers, Freelancer allows you to submit proposals for either hourly projects or contests. To begin with, you are only allocated 8 applications. For more, you will have to pay to be a member.
This site also has a project fee. One of the cheaper rates of commission is 3-5% or $3-5.
Somewhat similar to Freelancer, Guru is a great place to create a profile and display your experience. It also makes it easier for employers to find you while you search through the large number of daily job listings.
The number of free applications you receive with Guru is rationed per year and each project commission is around 9%.
ServiceScape is a website catering to freelancers around the globe. They mainly focus on individuals with graphic design, editing, writing and translating skills.
There are no bidding wars or contests on this website. Instead, everything is set up and predetermined on your profile. This means clients can hire you right from your profile. Because of this, ServiceScape takes a 50% cut of your earnings for each project.
You might view Craigslist as a glorified classifieds site, useful for selling unwanted belongings. But it’s also possible to find work here. The majority of jobs are quick, one-offs which can be useful if you’re between major projects.
What this site lacks, however, is the security job sites offer. So, be careful who you’re dealing with and at least try to have a meeting and a contract signed before you start any work.
16. People Per Hour
People Per Hour is a site I’ve had personal experience and success with. Another site based on the proposal method of applying for work, you can also create something called an ‘hourly’. An hourly is a piece of work you list, that you can do for a fixed price. Clients are then free to purchase these as and when they need.
Like any other bidding site, this one takes a commission from your earnings and the amount of proposals you have per month is limited.
17. Working Nomads
Are you a digital nomad who enjoys working from home or sunny destinations around the world? Working Nomads may just be a great place for you to stop by.
They curate some of the best digital jobs around, colour coding them by category for easier viewing. Categories range from Development and Marketing right down to Healthcare and Legal.
The emphasis of Landing.Jobs is primarily on European Freelancers and people working in Tech. You can create a profile and then apply for one of the many job listings, while employers can connect with you anonymously.
As per their FAQ, they are trying to increase the number of remote positions listed, so remote workers keep your eyes peeled.
19. Authentic Jobs
Authentic Jobs is a website for designers, developers and creative pros. Some of the companies who post on this site include the likes of Apple, the New York Times and even Tesla.
Job listings can be filtered by type, location and more, while there is a useful toggle at the top of the site that can filter jobs to show only remote ones.
Freemoter is predominantly for remote workers. Freelancers can enter up to 10 skills to search for a matching position, or simply browse the listings.
There is a visual filter along the top of the site making it easier to pare down positions and the range of categories is impressive.
Jobspresso is another carefully curated site catering to remote working opportunities. Freelancers can post their resume for view by employers and browse the wide range of open listings. Job types include tech, marketing, customer support and more with listings colour coded.
SkipTheDrive features remote jobs and work-from-home jobs with over 30 different job types catered for. It is completely free for job-seekers and no registration is required.

Writers, proofreaders and editors rejoice. There are far more opportunities for you to freelance now than ever before. The following sites have every writing-related job you can possibly dream of, many of which offer premium rates of pay.
Contena is a great choice for freelance writers, largely due to the amount of high-quality work available on the platform. Yet, it is a membership website that only allows new members periodically throughout the year.

One of the great perks of posting on due is the sheer size of the audience you can reach which can be a boon for any writer.
PubLoft only accepts the best writers onto its platform to write for their high-paying clients and pride themselves on helping writers spend more time on their craft than struggling to find clients.
They have bi-weekly payouts and editor support for their writers. What’s more, the longer you stay with them, the more you earn overall.
Contently is more like an agency than a simple job searching platform. You can sign up and create a free portfolio and search for writing work at the same time.
Freelance job websites for designers and creatives
I once tried being a freelance designer and soon learned it’s far harder than I expected it to be. Major kudos to you guys – I think I’ll stick to writing for the time being. If you’re in between clients or looking for a new long-term opportunity, take a look at the following job sites.
37. 99 Designs
99 Designs is a good way to build up your portfolio at the same time as looking for design work.
The way this website works is by clients posting a ‘contest’ which you then apply for by submitting your work. If your submission wins, you get paid. If it doesn’t, it’s another great piece of work to add to your portfolio.
While Behance isn’t a freelance job website, it is an excellent step in the right direction to finding freelance work. This is a portfolio site for designers that will surpass any personal portfolio you can create on your own website.
Behance has a great Domain Authority, which means your work has a good chance of ranking higher in search engine rankings. This makes it more visible to the right kind of clients.
Just like Behance, Dribbble is another great way to showcase your portfolio of design work. Clients can see what you’ve created and other designers can provide feedback too.
What’s more, Dribble has its own design jobs section which you can browse. You never know, your dream job could be right around the corner.
For those desperate to get a foot in the door at an up and coming startup, AngelList is your go-to website. Startups are always on the look-out for talented freelancers and this is where many come to find them.
Set yourself up with a profile and browse the hundreds of job listings. Startups can also come to you on this site, so it’s worth pursuing.
41. Art Wanted
If you’re skilled in digital design, illustration or any other art form, Art Wanted is perfect for displaying your portfolio. Within this, people have the option of buying your art if they love what they see.
Call it a virtual art gallery and shop. It provides heaps of potential for connecting with future clients.
42. Design Crowd
Design Crowd is like 99 Designs but with less competition. Less competition makes it much more beneficial for new designers to get noticed but the pay is lower in comparison.
This is a marketplace that works on contests. So, if you win you get paid and if you don’t, there’s nothing. For newbies though, it’s worth a shot.
43. Envato Studio
Envato Studio is a community of designers, developers and creatives all working on various projects. Most popular are logo design opportunities.
Freelancers are handpicked to work for Envato so there’s no guarantee you’ll secure a position. However, you can register your interest in working for them by filling in this form.
Slightly different from a standard job board, Coroflot acts more like a matchmaking service between clients and freelancers. Clients post their jobs, you create a portfolio and the team behind the website does the rest.
It should be noted that you need to apply to be a member of the website, so you should always ensure the best quality of work in your portfolio.
45. Smashing Magazine
Smashing Magazine is popular for its design and development articles. But did you know they also have a job board?
They list a wide range of offerings for designers from companies around the world, with the added possibility of finding a remote position. It can be time-consuming sifting through the jobs but it’s a rewarding process given the quality.
Fed up of invite-only codes to get onto some of the best freelance job sites? CrowdSPRING does away with all of that. Designers submit concepts to the jobs posted and the winning concept lands the work.
Free for creatives and designers to sign up, there is a waiting list for new creatives due to the large volume of applications. Open registrations are usually for 2-3 weeks every quarter.

Freelance job websites for programmers and developers
Programming and Development jobs seem to top many of the following job websites, with plenty of opportunities for talented freelancers. But the competition is fierce so before you apply for work on any of the following websites, make sure your portfolio and resume are in tip-top shape.
Joomlancer is an OpenSource freelance marketplace for Joomla, Drupal and WordPress plus a few others. Most of the jobs listed here cater to mainly advanced and intermediate skill levels.
Once you join (which is a pretty fast process), there are plenty of jobs to bid on with a range of budgets.
49. Rent a Coder
Rent a Coder is a job site completely free for developers to get started on. The free membership allows you to bid for jobs an unlimitedly, with a 7.5% commission fee.
If you’d like to get that fee down and access additional features, you can expect to pay from $6.99 to $29.99 per 30 days. Paid membership grants access to a portfolio, competitor visibility and contact details sharing.
50. Product Hunt Jobs

Gigster uses Artificial Intelligence to match freelancers with appropriate projects. You’ll need experience in software design, developing and even web design and more.
It should be noted that they have a highly selective screening process – something that can make it difficult to be accepted. But if you have the quality, you should have no problem.
53. GitHub Jobs
At the time of writing this, there are well over 300 job listings on GitHub Jobs. The majority of these are looking for talented Developers to join their companies.
Many of these positions allow the possibility of remote work and are with well-respected companies. So, filter and search for the ones most compatible with your skill set and get applying.

The range of programming and development jobs listed here is impressive, while you can also find some big-name companies hiring for talent at any given time. There is an RSS feed for each job category so sign up and stay up-to-date with the latest work available in your niche.
Freelance job websites for photographers
I’ve found through my research that finding freelance opportunities for photographers isn’t easy. Some of the sites below featured prominently but a bit of digging, some more surprising openings revealed themselves. This goes to show that there is often work in some of the least likely places.
I bet you didn’t realise you could find work as a photographer with Airbnb. Well, the truth is it’s entirely possible. Head to their careers page and filter their current openings.
If you’re lucky you may find a position photographing homes for their ‘verified destinations’.
This would be a great opportunity to work and travel at the same time.
59. Cruise Ship Jobs
Another one for those of you who want to travel and work, why not sign up to be a photographer on a cruise ship. You will be responsible for shooting pictures of cruise guests on and off the ship and at various locations.
You can expect your salary to range from $1800 to $2800 per month, but of course, this will vary based on the cruise liner.
60. Photography Jobs Central
Photography Jobs Central is a useful one to join if you have a little extra cash to spare. It’s a membership site that requires a subscription, however, it’s free to join and browse the jobs on offer. It’s worth doing this before committing to their membership plans to make sure it suits your needs.
There is a wealth of companies posting on Photography Jobs Central and the site actively tries to remove amateurs. This ensures there’s less competition for you as a whole.
61. Photography Jobs Finder
If you’re looking to find photography jobs without the fuss of subscription fees and hidden costs, this is the website you want to visit right away. Photography Jobs Finder is completely free to browse, join and apply for the many job listings.

Job websites for freelance marketers
Content and digital marketing freelancers are always in demand for businesses of all sizes. But as you will find on the following job websites, there are positions to be found in some of the most popular companies if you look hard enough.
Remotive is a simple and straight-forward job board with regular listings posted every day. You’ll find plenty of big name companies posting on here like Toggl, Automattic, ConvertKit and InVision.
It’s free to browse and apply for jobs here and if you’re a Marketer looking to work remotely all listings here are for remote and fully distributed teams.
Aquent is another match-making service which is perfect for Marketers looking for steady work. To begin freelancers should browse the open job listings and make an application. You’ll then have a MyAquent account where you can keep track of your applications. If an agent filing the position feels you’re a good match, they’ll contact you directly.
After your first interview with Aquent, your profile will be available for all agents to view, making much easier to secure yourself a position. With weekly pay, ongoing learning opportunities, healthcare and 401k retirement plans, it’s well worth giving this site your best shot.
65. PPC Hero
PPC Hero by Hanapin Marketing specialises in ‘enterprise-level partnerships for continuous market expansion and growth’. Alongside this, they have a job board dedicated to digital marketing positions that any freelance marketer should browse.
It’s easy to filter jobs by location and date, and it’s totally free to use. What’s more, there is an option to search for remote only positions.
66. Only Marketing Jobs
Only Marketing Jobs is aimed towards the European and UK job market, which is a refreshing change from most sites where the majority of work is in the US and Canada.
There are a wealth of jobs available to search through here, including many in the charity sector with organisations like the British Heart Foundation. This is perfect if you’re looking for meaningful work that will have a direct, positive impact on the lives of others.
Job sites for freelance virtual assistants
Virtual Assistants or VAs are seeing a boom in career prospects at the moment. Businesses find outsourcing some of their more administrative tasks can free up a large chunk of time. This translates to more work for freelance VAs as you’ll see on the next websites.
Belay is a resourceful site for budding virtual assistants wanting to work from home. After clicking ‘Apply’ you will go through an assessment process which includes two interviews and a skill assessment. This is to ensure you’re a good match for their clients.
Once you’re approved, you’ll be matched with suitable clients to begin your work.
68. Time Etc.
Time Etc. was created by Sir Richard Branson’s former assistant as a way to ease the load of busy, high-achieving people. They have a similar approach to Belay where they match virtual assistants to their Clients.
Having worked with them previously, I can verify that this is a legit service, with a guaranteed fixed hourly-rate for freelancers. You can also work as little or as much as you want to, without having to bid against other freelancers for work.
Getting into the freelance marketplace can be tough, to begin with. All of us freelancers have been there at one point or another. ClickWorker is a good entry point as a way to supplement your main-stream income while gaining experience on the side.
After a quick assessment with this site, you’ll be able to apply for a range of jobs including, data entry, researching, writing, app testing and more. The rate of pay is fairly low here, which is why I recommend you choose this option as an income supplement.
70. Amazon Mechanical Turk
Mechanical Turk works in a similar fashion to ClickWorker, in that small freelance jobs are outsourced to a network of Virtual Assistants. There is usually a high volume of work available on this site.
However, again, the pay is relatively low so it makes sense to resort to this option to top up your income or if you’re really struggling to make ends meet.
71. VA Networking
VA Networking is a website packed to the brim with useful information and resources for aspiring VAs to break into the freelance market. Basic membership is free, with plenty of articles to help educate you at no cost.
To gain access to the busy VA job board, you will need to subscribe to become a VAinsider. This membership program costs $37 per month with more expensive subscription tiers unlocking additional perks.
72. Assistant Match
Assistant Match matches VAs to their clients based on their individual needs. They offer full and part-time freelance positions you can complete from your own home. That is, providing you have all the equipment needed to do your job well.
Sign up using their registration form and if you’re a good fit, you’ll be matched with a client soon. If you’re just starting out, they offer training to help you on your way.
If the work you’re looking for is primarily remote based, Zirtual is a good site to swing by. VAs are hired here on a full-time basis for a range of tasks and working with them offers some excellent employee benefits.
At the time of writing Zirtual is only accepting applications from US-based freelancers. However, it’s worth checking back periodically to see if the situation changes.
74. Fancy Hands
Fancy Hands is a similar website to many in this section, in that they connect VAs to matching clients. They’re particularly interested in freelancers who are both good on the phone and with internet research.
To begin with, you will be paid per task, earning from $3 to £7 per task. Yet the pay increases from there. There’s also the opportunity to be promoted into managerial positions overseeing other VAs.
For work opportunities with more high-paying clientele, give Boldy a try. This is a premium matchmaking service looking for highly specialised Freelancers.
After applying to this company, the process can take up to 3 weeks. It also includes 3 video interviews, background and reference checks. You can expect to earn from £16-£18 per hour with minimum hours of 20 hours per week.
Freelance job websites for video editors and motion graphics
If you have plenty of experience in the Film, TV and Entertainment industries, there are a number of websites that cater directly to your niche market. Many demand the highest quality from their applicants, but it pays off in the long-term with great pay and access to main-stream clients.
76. Motionographer Jobs
Motionographer is a popular website that showcases some of the best recent and new work in visual effects, filmmaking and animation. What’s more, they have a dedicated job board focusing on opportunities in the filmmaking industry that freelance video editors will find helpful.
They list work in motion animation, design and editing, with some job listings allowing remote work too.
Mandy dedicates itself to TV production and film work. Calling itself the number 1 job site for cast, crew and creative professionals, there is likely to be a lot of competition here.
It’s easy to browse by country and category of work. Yet, to view full job descriptions you will need to sign up for free. To really make it on this site, you’ll need a fully polished portfolio and application to ensure you stand out from the crowd.
78. Production Hub
Geared towards the Media Production industry, Production Hub can help you put yourself in front of thousands of potential clients. Their job board is free to browse but if you want to apply and create your own profile, you’ll need to subscribe for a fee.
Pricing plans range from $5.99 per month with one free response credit. To unlock further options you can expect to pay from $69 to $139 every month.
79. Stage 32
Stage 32 is a combination of a job board and an opportunity to network. They help you find entertainment work within the Film, TV and Theatre industry.
The basic job board is easy to filter by location, date and paid or unpaid work. The beauty, however, comes from the networking opportunities. As we all know, word of mouth is a great boon to any profession.
Assemble.tv is a website that connects the right clients with the right freelancers. It’s a highly curated site where talent is hand-selected, thoroughly vetted and instantly available. Some of their creative talent has worked with top brands like Uber, Adidas and Etsy to name a few.
The selection process after making your application includes a comprehensive portfolio review which then moves on to a phone interview. If this is successful, you’ll then be added on a trial membership where your work is monitored for quality. And if you consistently create top quality work, you can join the 3% of applicants who are finally added to their network.
Phew, that was a lot of freelancing job sites!
