Are you here for

the money?

That makes sense.

Because we pay well — like, at-or-slightly-above market rate well. 😎

But….it’s likely something more that you’re looking for.

Maybe you’re here because…

  • You want to work with accomplished people who value agency, engagement, and wellbeing.
  • You’re tired of working in a silo — and you want to connect with top-tier technologists who can help improve your game.
  • You’ve heard that we stand up for work-life balance, flexible schedules, and your ability to work remotely.

^^^ And, by the way, we think it’s rad if "remotely'' means an RV (with satellite internet, of course) touring the Nation’s many great national parks or some cool digital nomad van commune.

The point is this:

We built Talentcrowd for tinkerers and technologists who take their work seriously and do it to thrive. If we do our job, everybody wins.

So, why apply to join Talentcrowd? Well, first, you’ll gain access to jobs matching your skill set. As soon as you complete and set your profile to currently available, Talentcrowd Matchmakers will be able to contact you with opportunities that fit your expertise.

You’ll also gain access to a bustling (and sometimes rowdy) Slack community as well as all the awesomeness of being around a community of tech tinkerers, hackers, makers, doers, and crafters. A place where strong technical opinions fly, maybe some discord, and for sure a safe place to connect with and maybe even learn from other top-tier technologists.


Not a mass factory. Meet with a real person who will hand-select jobs for you — and help you grow your career

You won’t just register and twiddle your things waiting for a match. We’ll get to know you — because we’re building a community.

Someone will reach out to you, introduce you to the fellow devs, and add value to your career.

Humans, not bots

When we say community, we mean it.

Unique private North America-only community

Tight-knit. Curated. Proudly weird.

If you’re looking for a community that’s not a random, unorganized forum with 17,000 faceless freelancers you know nothing about, we’re your peeps.

We accept only experienced freelancers into our (small, exclusive) network, which means you can build actual relationships with quality professionals who enhance your career — and your life.

Private community

We turn down 80% of the clients who approach us.

We handpick client like we handpick freelancers. With only the best clients (read: red-flag free), you’re guaranteed hassle-free engagements. And work you actually enjoy.

You’re matched by senior developers, not AI, so you get work that perfectly suits your interests and skill set. We track 653+ skills and match you accordingly.

We focus on win-win, skills alignment, and that we're not a body shop, we're looking to satisfy the high degree of specificity with a tailormade fit. If you want an off the rack suit (toptal, turing, etc.), go to your local department store, we're here for made-to-measure. Sloppy analogy but does this help?

Remote only.
Remote always.

As bosses and managers all over the world reel their people back into the office, our guys are working happily from home — in their pajamas.

We’ll never push you to give up your best location.

Most painless experience I've had contracting. The internal team prioritizes the needs of the developer and eliminates most of the worries a developer can have while contracting. Overall, compared to other gigs I've had, working with Talentcrowd has been zero-stress and a pleasure.

Working with Talentcrowd as a contractor has been a really great experience. The "family like" atmosphere makes me feel like the company cares about me as an individual, which is rare in the industry. Talentcrowd is all about delivering the best solutions for their customers, but that does not come at the expense of the worker's wellbeing. I would recommend Talentcrowd for anyone looking for a...

Some really
good questions

What are your rates? How much can I expect to pay?

Rates start at $90/hr. The exact rate will depend on the type of contractor you need.

Remember: you *only* pay for time worked — no benefits, no sick days, not even lunch breaks. And thanks to our contractors’ experience and expertise, there’s less time spent on each task, on back-and-forth, and on fixing bugs. So you:

  • Slash your technical debt
  • Minimize expensive context shifts
  • Avoid hours of interviewing duds.

How much is that worth to you? 😉

How long does it take to get matched?

From when you submit a job, we reach out within 2 days with an update — sometimes even with a candidate. Sometimes we match, sign off, and onboard a hire for a client within 2 weeks. Sometimes it takes longer to find the Goldilocks match. 

However long it takes, we’re committed to making the process as fast and hair-pulling-free as possible.

We could promise you a hard timeline — but we’d never do that, for one reason: we are committed to finding you a perfect match. An arbitrary deadline would force us to serve up mediocre matches.

What kind of professionals can I hire through Talentcrowd?

We’ve got every kind of tech contractor you need: 

  • UI/UX Design
  • Back & Front End Development
  • DevOps
  • Mobile Development
  • Project Management
  • QA Testing
  • Cloud Engineering

And we can fill any type of contract: full-time, SOW, freelance, consultants, and everything in between. 

How are you different from other talent platforms?

Other platforms are great…if you can afford to spend hundreds of hours sifting through profiles — many of which feature unreliable or underperforming people. 

And with generic platforms, you have to rely on keyword criteria, which do not take soft skills — nor other more granular tech specialties — into account.

Bottom line: if you don't know how to hire for tech, you're at risk of making expensive and time-consuming mistakes.

Our talent pool is small — and that's by design. We select only 3 of 100 freelancers who apply. 

With Talentcrowd, you know you’re getting the best talent, really fast, at the most competitive rates. 

Is there a minimum engagement?


If you are a good fit, we welcome you to try out our staffing services even for a small gig. We aim to become your trusted, reliable talent source for long-term partners.


Are you finding the jobs you (really) want on Upwork?

Didn’t think so.

Nobody on these scattered tech job platforms really has your back.

Get the kind of work you really want. Not just the money. But get the money too.
