Hiring on Contra 💻

Post an Opportunity

In a quick short minutes, post an opportunity on Contra for our team to review + match you with the perfect Independent!

Step 1. Posting your job 👀

The first step is choosing to create a new job listing from scratch, or to import your job posting. If you've already posted your job, choosing "Import your job posting" allows you to easily link your existing job and we'll import it for you!

Step 2. Getting Specific 💪

Select the role you want to hire by choosing from our list of top freelancers on Contra. Next, add specific skills you want the freelancer to have!

Step 3. Let's Talk Timeline + Budget ⌛️

In this step, you'll choose flat fee vs hourly rate (this is dependent on your preference). Next, choose duration: aka how long the project will last! Lastly, the budget - we've given you ranges to make it easier (ie: $25-$50/hour for rate based projects).

Step 4. Add Deliverables + Tools

This is where the magic happens: adding in the description of the role gives the freelancer a better idea of just what you are looking for. The more context you can provide the better. Here are some details you should include in this section👇

Details about the company/agency/project

Expected deliverables

Scope of work

Programs that will be utilized (i.e. Figma, Sketch, Adobe, Sanity)

Who the independent will be working with (if any)

5. Add your Company 🛠

Next, you'll add your company details to wrap up the hiring process! This includes the company name, website, and description. Don't worry you can edit this later on your company profile.

6. Review + Post 🚀

The last step includes reviewing your job opportunity and sharing. Our team looks over every opportunity before sharing to our community. If there are matches to your role, you will be notified through Contra! 💭

Note: If we don't have enough information about the opportunity, we'll send you an email to provide more details before your opportunity gets shared with potential applicants.
