Codeable (codeable.io) is the only WordPress exclusive freelancer marketplace. The Denmark-based company was founded in 2013 and employs more than 530 WordPress experts from around the world to solve WordPress problems for customers.
Their community of highly vetted developers completes over 2,000+ projects each month, with nearly 99% rated 5 stars out of 5. They have a laser-sharp focus on quality and have the reputation to prove it. They are partnered with hundreds of leading WordPress companies (hosts, themes, plugins, agencies, etc.) who utilize the talent at Codeable to help their own customers.
Pretty much anything related to your WordPress site; full site builds, fixing bugs, making design customizations, developing a custom plugin, modifying your theme, migrating your site to a new host, speed optimization, security cleanup tasks, or even providing one-on-one training.
Each of the developers they let onto their platform goes through a thorough screening process including an interview and review of their portfolio and work history.
You can post your project for a free estimate with no obligation to hire. The Codeable platform operates 24/7 and several users report getting initial estimates back within minutes of posting their jobs.
How it Works
With Codeable, you create your own task brief — the more detailed and well-thought-out the better. The more specific you can be in terms of what you want to be done, the better results you get, and the better understanding the coders will have of your project.
You’ll begin collecting estimates almost immediately, but the bids are averaged out — removing price from the equation. You can pick the developer you feel is the best fit based on their feedback, recent work history, or their areas of specialization.
In either case, Codeable explains you can pick confidently because they only allow top-notch technical talent to join their ranks.
Plans and Pricing
Codeable developer rates range from $70-120/hr, and estimates are based on the scope/complexity/urgency of the project. Consultations start at just $69 to speak with an expert about your project.
The way their pricing works is the different WordPress pros submit bids, but unlike Elance, Codeable takes the average of those bids to create your estimated price. (Codeable adds a fixed service fee of 17.5% on top of that price. You can learn more on their pricing page here.)
The theory is this prevents their marketplace from turning into a “race to the bottom” on price, but still allows you access to top WordPress talent at reasonable rates. It also saves you the trouble of sorting through a dozen different quotes and trying to discern the difference!
You might end up paying more on a per-job basis because they focus on offering the highest quality development services (not the lowest bid). When you think about the extra hours and money that is often spent to fix a cheaper developer’s hack job, Codeable could end up being a money saver.

I haven’t had a chance to test the service personally yet but will be sure to report back here and update this post once I do.
When I first saw Codeable, a couple of competitors came to mind. The first is Elto (formerly Tweaky), which offers website “tweaks” and other services starting from just $39. (Read about how I’ve been using Fiverr instead.)
The second service I thought of was WP Curve, which offers “unlimited” WordPress support for just $69 per month. They’ve seen some crazy growth over the past year and are doing very well.
