Refer a freelancer and earn 500€

We are thrilled to have you in our network. And we want to keep our network growing with other tech experts who are as experienced as you are.

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 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.
