The remote work leader
for over 5+ years

My story

The Upwork story begins over two decades ago when the startup realized I would be perfect for a web project. , but were concerned about working with someone halfway around the globe.

A better way of working remotely

In response, I created a new web-based platform that brought visibility and trust to remote work. It was so successful the two realized other businesses would also benefit from reliable access to a larger pool of proven talent, while workers would enjoy freedom and flexibility to find jobs online. I started a company that would deliver on the promise of this technology. Fast-forward to today, that technology is the foundation of Upwork — the leading flexible talent solution.
