About oDesk Corporation
oDesk (www.oDesk.com) is the leading marketplace for online workteams with the best model for both buyers and providers:
For buyers: Guaranteed work — every hour billed is an hour worked. Screen captures of each provider's desktop taken at random intervals enable buyers to audit the hours and work completed so they have confidence every hour billed by a remote team member is an hour worked. This capability also enables the buyer to collaborate more closely and re-direct the provider if necessary, much like you do when you manage by walking around your office.
For providers: Guaranteed payment — every hour worked is an hour paid, without the hassle of invoicing or slow-paying clients, making oDesk the preferred marketplace for 275,000+ professional contractors including software engineers, web developers, graphic designers, writers, researchers, administrators, and customer service agents.
