Last night, when I received an email from Upwork titled as an important update to Upwork’s pricing, I thought that finally some positive change will happen to the world’s biggest freelancers and freelance jobs marketplace.
Over the past few months, freelancers and businesses have experienced Upwork’s website and Team App not working for hours, and we’re using Upwork’s search engine, which would give results that have nothing to do with the search query. Not to mention the changes in the algorithm that calculates freelancers’ job success rate. Due to it, many independent contractors were left angry and in disbelief.
Yesterday, we at Nomadship thought Upwork is finally changing in a positive way, but we were wrong.
