New idea for a project

Luiz Carvalho @luizfccarvalho

I used to do some freelancing and I've never loved any platform. The one that I liked the most was not international and paid just in the local currency.

I would like to build a great freelancing platform that could receive jobs from everywhere.

I am a backend developer looking for a frontend dev to work with me on the technical part. But help is always welcome here so if you have any other skills and want to be a part of the project, just contact me too!

Got excited by the idea? Contact me on [email protected]

    The problem I find with most freelancing websites is that there are way too many providers making it very difficult to choose one that will be a good fit for you. I don't think it would be much use to add another platform to the equation. If you are really adamant on doing it, I suggest you think about 2 thing:

    1. Features that no one else currently offers
    2. Features that would be very difficult for established players to offer

    Just spitballing but perhaps a niche orientated platform might make sense.

      That is a really good point, I'll think about the two points you said. Maybe I can come up with some features or think about what group of professionals I'd like to target. Thanks for the comment!

      I did some jobs there and then stayed a couple of months away and they permanently banned my account and said that that skills were not compatible with their site

        Yeah, it's horrible. oDesk, years and years ago, was decent; Upwork is Satan's spawn.

    Hey,
    what is your tech stack?

      I was thinking of developing this project with Spring or Flask and I don't do the front end so it is really up to the professional who'll do it
