History[edit] Elance was founded in 1999 by Beerud Sheth and Srini Anumolu.[8] oDesk was founded in 2003[9] by Odysseas Tsatalos and Stratis Karamanlakis.[10] Upwork was formed 18 months after Elance and oDesk announced their merger on December 18, 2013 to create Elance-oDesk.[11] With the launch of Upwork, the oDesk platform was upgraded and rebranded and the company announced that the Elance platform would be phased out within a couple of years, resulting in a single freelance marketplace.[12] In early September 2015, the service experienced an outage which led to an apology being issued by CEO Stephane Kasriel.[13] This led to the introduction of an Upwork Status page to offer freelancers and clients greater transparency.[citation needed] As of March 2017[update], it reported 14 million users in 180 countries with $1B in annual freelancer billings.[14][15] From its foundation in 1999, the company has raised a total of $168 million through 10 private equity funding rounds.[16]

Operation[edit] Upwork allows clients to interview, hire and work with freelancers and agencies through the company's platform. The platform now includes a real-time chat platform aimed at reducing the time to find and hire freelancers.[3] The platform offers a time sheet application that tracks time and takes screenshots while the freelancer is working.[17]
