Refer a freelancer and earn 500€

We are expanding our community. If you have a friend or contact that has the same exceptional skill level you do, let us know and earn €500. 

How it works

We would love to hear from freelance software developers, data scientists, PMs, or UI/ UX designers from your personal network.

Invite friends from
your network

Just tell your friends about expertlead and send them your referral code which you’ve gotten when you joined expertlead. Make sure your friend enters the referral code into the application form when applying online.


Our quality

We will get in touch with your friend as soon as we get the application - then, she or he has to go through our selection process (incl. coding test, live coding). Feel free to mentor them as you have already passed our testing.


Onboarding & more
referrals for you

If your friend is admitted to our network, we will onboard her or him just as we onboarded you. For each successfully onboarded friend, you can invite another five - with the chance to earn 500€ with each of them.


First project delivery
& 500€ for you

Once a freelancer that you referred finishes her or his first project successfully*, we will transfer you 500€. There is no limit to the number of freelancers you can be rewarded for - hence, frequent referrals will really pay off.

Frequently Asked Questions

I can't find my referral code – what can I do?

If you are a member of the expertlead network and cannot find your personal referral code anymore, kindly contact freelancers@expertlead.de and we will help you out. If you are no member of the network yet, please apply through our online form as only expertlead members can refer new potential members to us.

How many friends can I invite?

When you join the expertlead community, you can invite up to five of your friends to join expertlead. For each of your friends that makes it into the network, you will be granted five more invites - there is no limit to this process. Hence, your first successful referral means you can invite ten instead of five friends from your network - each of them with the opportunity to earn 500€ (once the freelancer successfully finishes her or his first project via expertlead - see Step 4 of "How it Works" on this page).

I shared my code but where do we enter it?

Just tell your friends about expertlead, send them your referral code and make sure she or he enters the referral code into the application form when applying online. Once she or he enters the code into the application form, the referral will be automatically tracked back to you.

Refer a project and earn up to 5,000€

Now you can earn money even with the projects you may have to turn down, that are offered to you outside of expertlead. If you are busy and still get project requests - let us know and the expertlead network will take over.

And don’t worry about the quality of the delivery - we test all our network members and only accept five out of 100 applicants to our network.

How it works


Connect us to the project

When you realize you have to turn down a project request, let us know before you do so. Just get in touch with us via our chat, email or phone to let us know the project specifics and client counterpart.


We evaluate your project

We will reach out to the client counterpart as soon as possible and evaluate the project together. We want to understand the project in detail and be sure that it is a project we can deliver on at high quality - and that the content is interesting for our network.


The network delivers and you get up to 5,000€

Once the project you introduced to us is successfully delivered* by one of our freelancers, we will transfer you 5%** internal net revenue. For instance, if our internal net revenue is 5,000€, we will transfer you 250€.

Your part in growing the expertlead community

The existing community is in charge of whether a tech freelancer is accepted into the community. Using coding tests and technical interviews, the community checks the qualifications of applicants. As a member of the expertlead freelancer community you can become part of the team that conducts these interviews.

How to become an expertlead Interviewer:

  • Sign up as an interviewer
  • Get on a call to learn more about this opportunity
  • Get on-boarded as an interviewer  in a two step process, shadow a session of one of our tech experts, lead a session and be shadowed by one of our experts
  • Discuss feedback and share your availability to hold interviews autonomously
Thank you for your application!
We are reviewing your application and we will reach out to you shortly.
