How to find the perfect contractor

Here are some helpful tips to get the most out of our advanced search tools:

Refine your filters

Narrow your search by adjusting filters like skills, tools, rate, location, and language. This can help you find freelancers who best fit your project requirements.

Look for special badges

  • Top Independents: These represent the top 1% of freelancers and are our most active and highly recommended freelancers that the Contra team has individually vetted.
  • Experts: Contra partners with companies like Framer, Spline, Rive, and others to identify experts on their platforms.
  • Recommendations: Recommendations are very helpful to make an informed decision based on contractor’s experience working with other clients.
  • Amount Earned: A freelancer's total earnings on Contra can indicate their experience and popularity.

Explore portfolios

Review contractors’ portfolios to explore their past projects, style, and expertise. Diving deep into portfolios provides valuable insights about a contractor’s capabilities and helps you determine if they will be a good match.

Add contractors to your network
