All Things oDesk
October 15, 2010 by Erica Benton


A little over an hour ago, the odometer at oDesk’s oConomy rolled over a major milestone. Our contractors have earned over $200 million dollars on oDesk – a fantastic achievement that made our Redwood City office erupt in cheers.

Hard to believe it was just 1 short year ago that we were celebrating our first $100M earned by oDesk contractors. Just last month, our users gave us another reason to celebrate by surpassing 1M hours worked in a single month. As the largest and fastest-growing global employment platform, more remote work is done on oDesk than anywhere else.

So congratulations again to our fantastic contractors, and to the employers who hire them. You guys are truly changing how the world works!

Update: You can watch the oDometer roll over $200M in this video.
