17 Places to find WordPress Freelance Jobs

If you work as a freelancer with WordPress, either as a developer or designer it helps to have a few places you can check regularly for work when things are slow. I have found work through design industry specific job boards, as well as hired through them. In this post I will roundup job board sites where you can find freelance or full-time WordPress related employment.

WooThemes Jobs

WooJobs is about bringing a community together and enabling providers & clients to meet on mutual ground. We’ve found that so many WooThemes and WordPress users look for quality designers and developers that can help them out with modifying an existing WordPress theme or website, or developing a custom theme or plugin. We’ve also found that for most clients its incredibly hard to find a provider of suitable quality and more importantly a provider that can be trusted. This is where WooJobs fills the gap.

  1. Great research about freelancing sites and like it especially because  it is related to wordpress and designing -Keshav

  2. Thank you very much for this great list, it’s a really good overview. I’m using freelancermap, which is an international IT-project platform where freelancers and outsourcing providers can register for free and apply without limitation. Nice to know: No commission fees!
    Maybe this post would help other freelancers to find a great job!

  3. Thanks for sharing this list. I usually avoid the big search boards like Odesk or Elance as I feel they attract the “cheaper” types of clients who don’t want to spend anything.

    There really needs to be a better job board for WordPress type projects. The ones listed here are a good start … as there doesn’t need to be a middleman that takes away 10% of the project costs.
