Lots of ‘freelance’ there in the title, but it was difficult to avoid. Outsourcing marketplace Freelancer.com (formerly GetAFreelancer) has acquired its much smaller German counterpart, Freelancer.de.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Sponsored with funds from the EU, Freelancer.de (or as the company is named, Freelancer Bookingcenter) was launched in the Summer of 2007 to increase online recruitment for microbusinesses and self employed freelancers in Germany.
Over 120 categories of freelance work are currently listed through Freelancer.de, servicing thousands of businesses across Germany.
