Intel, GoPro Among Top 30 Companies Hiring Freelancers

The freelance economy – both in the United States and across the globe – has outpaced expectations in recent years. Of course, this shouldn’t come as a surprise: with an overall economy shifting to a wider focus on startups and an increasing, individual requirement for work-life balance, many of today’s workers seek out the flexibility associated with contracted work. Today, FlexJobs published its ranking of the top 30 companies hiring freelancers – companies where you can take your skills and expertise as a freelancer; companies like Intel and GoPro.

In order to come up with the rankings, FlexJobs looked at and analyzed thousands of freelance job listings between August 1, 2015 and October 31, 2015. While a short-term look at data doesn’t necessarily prove that the companies are overall the best at hiring freelance talent (since hiring boosts can happen periodically throughout the year), the rankings are still helpful for freelancers out there who may have never considered going after larger companies for freelance work.

The companies on the list range anywhere from education and healthcare to technology and marketing, with BCC Worldwide coming in at the top. Earlier this year, FlexJobs published a list on the 76 companies at which you can work remotely. You can take a look at all 30 top companies hiring freelancers, below:
