Dru Lavigne posted an interesting post about oDesk, a company that provides a platform for business and qualified technology contractors to connect.
oDesk is a global staffing marketplace enabling businesses to Hire, Manage, and Pay remote contractors as if they were in the local office. Our proprietary tools and guaranteed payment policies enable a secure and trusted marketplace for both buyers and providers. We’ve mined through mountains of data about BSD (including FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and DragonFlyBSD) jobs, providers, certifications tests and more in order to bring you this single resource page containing statistics, information, maps, resources, links, and rankings. All information about programming and development work is based on the oDesk network that has providers from United States, Russia, India, Ukraine, China, and 100 other countries.
