Business model

oDesk is an online workplace that enables businesses to find, hire, manage and pay professionals via the internet. 

In 2014, the new company Elance-oDesk was launched when oDesk merged with Elance. Combined, the two sites are expected to have more than $900 million in work completed and 2.5+ million jobs posted in 2014. Elance-oDesk’s vision is to create an online workplace for the world. In doing so, the company is reimagining work by freeing people to collaborate via the Internet.
