See how Flexera uses Upwork for IT work

"Flexera engineers a way to deliver work 2x faster and keeps security at the forefront"

Flexera's engineering team needed resources, but the tight local labor market made hiring difficult. After months of searching, their request for a ReactJS developer remained unfilled. Within days of posting on Upwork, Flexera's engineering team found an experienced ReactJS developer and was able to start work immediately."
