To maximize innovation, we are focusing development on Upwork, said oDesk Chief Executive Officer Stephane Kasriel as he announced the re-launch of oDesk as Upwork.
Upwork formerly oDesk is a marketplace where clients and freelancers can identify each other, buy and sell freelancer services.
The site, now accessible through www.upwork.com provides services to clients and freelancers, including hosting and maintaining the Site, enabling the formation of service contracts between Clients and Freelancers, and managing disputes related to those Service Contracts.
