A market place for organizations to find contract based talent for specific needs

Looking for: Designer, Developer
SmartTime is a digital marketplace to connect independent educated contractors with organizations who need short term support. There is a market out there of professionals who for one reason or another are not wanting to remain in the traditional corporate environment. Maybe they have hit retirement, started a family, or just want more control over how, when and where they work. SmartTime will allow this highly talented group of individuals to create a profile promoting their skill set (similar to LinkedIn), display their availability, market rates. The site would also allow them to display thought leadership/deliverables associated with specific project.  Finally, there could be some sort of feedback section provided by former clients.   

Organizations often have a need for high quality temporary work. Whether it is a Marketing Professional, User Experience Designer, Human Capital Consultant, or an Mechanical Engineer, organizations need access to high quality talent. SmartTime will allow organizations to identify, connect and hire talent that meets their specific needs at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional services firm or recruiting agency.
