We believe that high-quality freelancers deserve a faster, better and fairer way to connect with reputable clients. We are running a clean marketplace where we promote quality instead of price. We don't allow recruiters to post projects. We source and select only the best project opportunities from large corporates or innovative startups and we made them available to our network.

Yes. You can sign up and set your availability according to your availability.

We are committed to proposing 5 relevant freelancers to each of our clients' projects.

Yes, you can. You can also upgrade to an Agency account and create a profile for each idle staff. The more we know about your staff, the more we'll be confident in sending you new project opportunities.

Yes, you can if you and the client both agree. Some clients, typically corporates, require Hoplance to manage the contracting part though.

We are still in beta and we are not currently focusing on revenues. Our focus is 100% on creating the best experience for skilled freelancers to find high-quality projects. Having said that, here is how we remunerate our service at the moment:

  • a client find you via our serch tool
    you negotiate the project scope and rate directly with the client and you retain all your earnings
  • we feature your profile on our search tool
    you pay us a monthly fee since being fatured increases your chances to be contacted by a client
  • we do the commercial effort to find a project that suits you
    we retain a commission of your earnings for our active sales effort and for helping you negotiate a better daily rate

We have a growing pipeline of work opportunities coming in for a range of the following categories: web and mobile development, software development, web and graphic design, marketing, sales, project management, business intelligence, interim management, and more...

Yes, definitely. If you have any previous relevant expertise - at any level - you can find clients.

Yes and no. While Hoplance focuses on contract opportunities, some clients are looking for full-time employees. Some of them start hiring on a contract mode and decide to go permanent after a trial period. We are happy to discuss this with clients.

Yes, we expect over 50% of our clients are looking for remote applicants.

Yes. If you want to avoid finding yourself in a "dry spell", you should constantly be looking for new leads.

Our goal is to connect qualified freelancers to quality companies, which means that we often stop companies posting jobs if we are not sure of their quality. We don't work with recruiting agencies or "body shop" companies.

You have the option to set your profile as hidden from our search tool. However, Hoplance is designed to allow you to build your profile around your skill set and your past projects. You should treat your Hoplance Profile in the same way you view your LinkedIn profile when it comes to current employers.

Validated accounts will receive notice of work opportunities, clients can find you and contact you via our search tool - provided you set your profile as visible.

The more information you provide in your profile, the sooner your profile will be validated and the sooner you'll receive relevant work opportunities.

We are very transparent and we like to work like that. We take 10% of the money associated with each payment you receive from our clients during the first 6 months. We subsequently take only 5%. We also provide optional additional Premium features or a monthly subscription.

We accept Visa, Mastercard and Amercian Express credit cards. Everything is securely handled by Stripe.

You can cancel your subscription at any time without any additional cost.

We use Paypal to secure all payments via our website.

Payments can also be made offline via direct bank deposit.
