What is oDesk?
oDesk is the marketplace for online workteams, with the best business model for both employers and contractors. Odesk unique approach guarantees to employers that an hour billed is an hour worked, while guaranteeing to contractors that an hour worked is an hour paid. oDesk allows employers (“buyers”) to create online workteams coordinated and paid through the company’s proprietary software and website. The name is a short version of “no desk” in reference to the company’s intent to enable anyone to work anywhere, anytime. Prospective employers can post jobs for free, and freelance workers (“providers”) may create profiles and bid on jobs, also for free.
