Toolset job board is now live


February 19, 2020

We’re happy to announce a new job board, which will help connect people who need custom development with those who can implement it.

Some people need help building entire websites. Others need help implementing a part of the site. Some need help building a connector to an outside service.

Whatever you need, there’s a contractor who can help you. Our job board allows posting projects and getting bids privately. Clients can share information and contractors don’t go into a race-to-the-bottom.

Once posted, any contractors who meet the job’s criteria will receive an automatic notification. This will give them all the details of your job, and how to apply. The more criteria you add, the better your chances of finding just the right contractor.

Using the Toolset job board is free

This is a free service that Toolset provides. We don’t charge clients to post new jobs. It doesn’t cost contractors anything to apply for them. So all transactions are entirely between the client and the contractor. We’re here to help connect the best developers with people who have custom WordPress projects.

Job board doesn’t replace our support

When you buy Toolset, you receive access to download and support. Toolset support covers you for things related to using our plugins and getting them to work on your sites. We are responsible for the correct functionality of our plugins and you don’t need to pay contractors to resolve bugs and train you to use Toolset.

We recommend reaching out to contractors when you need help with work that’s clearly outside of the scope of support. Developing new sites, building custom functionality and adapting code to run with Toolset are all great projects for contractors.

Who are Toolset contractors?

All contractors listed on are carefully vetted to make sure they’re the best at what they do. We make sure that developers have demonstrated their abilities before being able to bid for jobs. So clients can be sure that the Toolset job board is a source of qualified, capable developers. The best place to find the right people to help with custom projects.

Visit the new jobs board and start posting

Open a free account if you don’t have one, and you can begin listing your jobs. When posting, remember that this isn’t for support work. As a Toolset client, you get that from us directly as part of your subscription. Only post jobs when you’re looking for development work, rather than support.

  1. I would have already hired contractors years or months ago, if I could have seen some ratings / reviews and / or I could filter by ratings…
    As I see, there’s still no such options / filters… 🙁

    On every each freelancer sites there are ratings / reviews…

  2. This is great news. There was previously a rather clumsy approach to contacting contractors as you had to contact each one to ask the same question and then hope they provided that service. This is a far more effective and time saving approach. Well done for implementing it.

    • You need to be a Toolset user fro at least 6 months (have an account) and then you will see an invitation in your account to join us. You need to add your portfolio to your profile (3 examples). If I’m not mistaken, we also send an email after 6 months. Then someone from our team will review it and get in touch with you.

    • Yes, I know it would be great but it would be too complex to make what we did available for public.

    • Hello,
      I’m sorry but we put the calendar features on hold because we needed to prioritize other features. We wish we could implement everything but our resources are limited too and sometimes hiring new people doesn’t help much. So yes, you would need to hire someone for that custom work.
