The IBM Center for Cloud Training and Freelancer, the world's largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace, have combined forces to help win the race for cloud talent.

Together, they will be making IBM Cloud training programs available for use in Freelancer projects and contests. This program provides Freelancer’s community of 51 million participants the ability to learn cloud skills by leveraging IBM’s experience in building, deploying and managing enterprise applications in cloud environments. 

According to Freelancer’s Chief Executive, Matt Barrie, this program can help close the skill and talent gaps hindering cloud adoption, as IBM and Freelancer together will enable businesses to reap the rewards of cloud integration by developing a strong cohort of certified developers.

Freelancers can now participate in IBM-sponsored contests and bid on cloud projects, allowing them to build cloud skills and earn industry-recognized certifications, proving their knowledge to clients and the community.
