Latest news about Upwork
2016. JIRA gets Upwork integration
Project management service JIRA is getting a new feature that will let you easily convert JIRA tickets into job postings on Upwork freelance marketplace. With this new integration, Jira users can now click a button and get a pre-populated form to submit to Upwork’s marketplace. This feature will likely appeal to small businesses that often have a backlog of feature requests and bug fixes they never get to. This is not the first time Atlassian and Upwork have partnered around JIRA. Upwork clients can already link their JIRA tickets to an Upwork account to allow freelancers to track their time, for example. Clients can also use Upwork’s messaging feature to receive updates when a freelancer checks in code to Bitbucket, for example, or update a JIRA ticket.
2015. Elance-oDesk rebrands as Upwork
More than a year after the two competitors Elance and oDesk merged to form one freelancer powerhouse, it is finally rebranding under a new name, Upwork. And with the new name comes a new platform, which adds a new mobile app, new search algorithms, faster processing and a real-time chat service — a completely free product that Upwork’s new CEO Stephane Kasriel describes as a “Slack killer.” Upwork is making its collaboration and chat platform completely free to use, and also available to anyone who wants it — not just those people posting jobs on Upwork or those looking for work. As with Slack, Upwork is looking to add more features to the service, such as integrations with GitHub, Google Drive, Jira and video functionality later this year. The online job search market is full of competition, with Indeed.com, Monster, CarreerBuilder, LinkedIn and many more also playing strong in the permanent jobs space.
