Hubstaff Talent Alternatives And Competitors


Hubstaff is a relatively new company offering a completely free talent service. This Toptal alternative is free for both sets of users- clients and freelancers. It is best suited for companies looking to hire independent freelancers and agencies. 


It operates more as a database of freelancers who sign up on the platform, as there isn’t a manual vetting process to assess the quality of these developers. You can browse developer profiles and get in touch with them directly. 


Talent Location: Worldwide 


Pricing: It doesn’t charge any fees, markups, or sign-up fees compared to what Toptal charges. 


Skills Offered: Development, Marketing and Sales, Design and Multimedia, Writing and Content, Database and IT, Administration, and Business Consulting related services.


Hiring Process: It’s a free platform for talent to be featured sorted under their respective skill sets. You may browse through the talent profile which will feature their rates, location, years of experience, portfolios, and resumes for your reference. Once you have posted your job with its full description and requirements on the Hubstaff platform for free, you can invite your preferred, shortlisted talents within the platform to work on the project. During this invitation process, the client may interview the potential candidates to ensure the right match. 


Cancellation Policy: No information is provided on project cancellation at Hubstaff Talent as of August 2022. 


Recommended For: Short-term projects that require freelance talent.
