Linkedin steps into freelance marketplace with ProFinder.

Rolls out freelancer services in USA.

The number of freelancers have grown to 50% in last 5 years, Linkedin joins the freelance marketplace industry with its new website ProFinder.

The concept is very similar to the traditional marketplace, employers post a project by supplying their brief (including country, zip code preference) and ProFinder introduces them to the professionals from their curated list. ProFinder concierge team also helps in the selection process.
