How to find an Uber or Lyft driver
Upwork, the online platform that lets workers earn money from their work, is getting more aggressive with its job listings.
The company is starting to list drivers on job sites like Craigslist and Upwork for jobs that might not be available elsewhere.
That could be a boon for the gig economy, where job listings often are free.
Upwork CEO Chris Cox said the company is expanding its services and expanding its job search capabilities.
The site, which was founded in 2004, has more than 80,000 members across the United States.
“Our goal is to create a more secure, trustworthy, and reliable way to connect people who are doing extraordinary work,” Cox said in a blog post on Tuesday.
“Upwork will continue to build on our work and work with partners to bring more and better job listings to the masses.”
Upwork is also adding more job listings and the ability to track when and where people are working.
Upstream is also expanding its workforce.
The startup announced Tuesday that it is expanding to the United Kingdom and will start accepting applications in October.
Upstate New York-based Upstream, which started out as a job posting service for freelancers, has since expanded to include full-time workers as well.
“We’re working hard to provide a platform for workers to connect and find work in our region and around the world,” Cox wrote in a statement.
UpWork, which began as a way for people to earn money for their work from their time at a job, is currently valued at $7.5 billion.
