Looking for an exciting and challenging career in technology?

Who we're looking for

Freelancer has a world class team across a diverse range of disciplines. We work on systems at scale, with a broad range of technologies, programming languages and platforms. This is as close as you will get to working in a Silicon Valley tech company. There’s no other opportunity like it in Australia!

We are always interested to hear from exceptional Computer Scientists, Electrical Engineers, Data Scientists, DevOps Engineers, Mathematicians, PhD Graduates, Statisticians, Physicists, Product Managers, Mobile Developers, Full Stack Developers, UI/UX and Front End Designers. Whether you're a graduate or a seasoned veteran, there's always an opening for incredible people here.

Benefits of working for us

Freelancer’s headquarters is based in Sydney, Australia and provide an exciting workplace along with many other attractive benefits. Our office is directly on the water at Jones Bay Wharf.

This won't be your typical cog-in-the-machine type of job. You will be exposed to the fast pace of a startup at the grass roots by a team who have built global technology companies before, designing and developing the software and systems that drive our platform of over users.

Freelancer.com has a vibrant and fun team atmosphere where you can enjoy many perks such as our huge balcony overlooking the harbour, social events, hackathons, poker tournaments, well-stocked kitchens, Friday BBQs, an outdoor pool table, and free gym membership! We also provide our staff with spacious desks, huge LCD monitors, and your choice of development platform (Linux, Mac, Windows).

If you're a high achiever with talent, looking for something more than a boring job in corporate, want to work with the best and brightest, don't need to be hand held, and want to be in at ground zero with a company that has a shot at being one of the biggest sites on the Internet then contact us.
