3D Hard Surface Modelers

Getting started with 5Crowd is easy!


Our mission is to unlock the power of freelance and share it with the world. We are passionate about working with the best freelance professionals from all across the globe through our online platform. When applying, please include a portfolio so that we can review your best work!


We carefully review all applications to evaluate whether or not 5Crowd seems like a good fit for both parties. We select freelance professionals based on their reliability, availability, quality of work, and communication skills. See our Code of Conduct to learn more. Should your application be approved for the next step, you will receive an email inviting you to complete our onboarding process.


All freelancers must complete our multi-step onboarding process. It covers more detail on working with 5Crowd and some relevant legal paperwork. This is done entirely online and usually only takes about 30 minutes.


Once you have completed onboarding, we will be in touch within 2-3 days to begin a Pilot Project. This is a mock project for your skillset that will take place over the course of about a week. This is an opportunity for you to get to know how we work and vice-versa. In recognition of your time commitment for this pilot project, we’ll pay you a fixed stipend amount. We understand that this stipend may not be a reflection of your typical market rate. On our regular projects, you will be able to propose your own rates.


Based on how the Pilot goes, we’ll determine whether there is a good fit for you in our Crowd. If so, you’ll start receiving project opportunities from us soon after! You will be sent email notifications when we have a new project that we think you would be a great fit for, and you can submit an proposal if you are interested and able to take the project on in the given timeline. When you are awarded a project, a 5Crowd Project Manager will work with you from kickoff to final delivery to ensure a smooth process for both sides.


We offer a variety of payment options and ensure that freelancers are paid within 30 days of invoicing. We also give you the option to accelerate payment. There are no fees on the 5Crowd platform and also no hidden fees, so the price you quote is the price you’re paid.
