In response to your feedback, we’ve been working hard on an exciting update to the Anthillz platform. Now that it’s almost complete, we’d like to break the news.

New Features – to be released next week

  • Slick new freelancer profiles — We’ve redesigned the freelancer profiles to be more persuasive, with client reviews front-and-center. Click here for a screenshot.
  • More detailed freelancer reviews — We’ve shifted our emphasis from numerical ratings to written reviews, so that it’s easier to get to know each freelancer.
  • ID verification no longer required — Now anyone can create a public profile.
  • See any profile without logging in — All profiles are now publicly visible, without logging in.
  • Easier to recruit and contact freelancers — Employers no longer need to login or create an account to send a message to freelancers they might like to hire.  As always, we do not share freelancers’ e-mail addresses.
  • Job board removed — We want to encourage employers to contact freelancers directly, rather than waiting for freelancers to contact them. This also allows us to focus on showcasing freelancers, rather than showcasing jobs.
  • All profiles will be upgraded automatically, so you don’t need to do anything extra.

Here’s a Sneak Preview

Take a look at a sample profile. If you already have a profile, it will upgraded automatically.
