Job Creation

With some projects, you may not be able to estimate how much time is need to complete tasks. In that case, you can choose a flexible remuneration and set a maximum budget. So when a Genius submits their project result, they have to indicate how long they’ve worked on it and cannot exceed your maximum budget. As soon as the Genius submits the result and the number of hours, you will be able to verify the data. If the Genius has repeatedly made inconclusive statements about their working hours in previous jobs, you will receive a message telling you to review the time carefully. Geniuses who repeatedly give false information about their working hours will be removed from the platform.

If you’re running into similar jobs, consider building a template. When creating future jobs, you’ll have the ability to make small changes to existing job briefings and post quickly.

If you’re running into larger project demands, contact Customer Success to explain our Bulk Upload feature.


Our projects make the most sense when the work can be completed independently. As long as the briefing is clear and has the relevant information attached, it will be matched to the most qualified Genius for the job.

The platform makes it very convenient to tackle larger jobs whenever they can easily be divided by section or skill sets. This allows multiple Geniuses to work on the same project simultaneously and accelerate its timeline.


Revisions are the best time to give your Geniuses the chance to refine your initial submission and provide you with the quality results you can expect on WorkGenius.

When making a revision request, please remember that the details you provide in your feedback are vital to your freelancer optimizing his results. Additional work cannot be assigned if it’s deemed out of the scope of the original job.

If you’re not fully satisfied with your initial results, you can always request a revision request and provide feedback on what you need to be improved. Your Geniuses will be instantly alerted and deliver your new results.

Please understand that our Geniuses are still prone to human error and occasionally take subjective decisions based on their interpretation of your briefing.

If you’re still not satisfied with your results, you have the rarely employed option of rejecting your job results and leave your Genius unpaid.

You can request work in any format that your results require. Our platform will suggest commonly selected file formats that are consistent with the type of work that you request.


Billed Working Time: These are the active hours of work that you will be paying for.

Total Working Time: This is the available time that Geniuses have to submit their results back to you.

Deadline: This is the length of time that your Job Posting will stay active on the platform.

Most of our jobs are matched within 30 minutes, however, there are certain factors of your briefing that can delay that.

Please ensure that your compensation and deadline are in line with our suggested rates and delivery time. Review your briefing and make sure that you aren’t missing any details or documentation that would prevent someone external from working independently.

Your Geniuses

The three different tiers of talent, Junior, Mid-Level, and Senior, refer directly to their performance on the WorkGenius platform.

Senior Geniuses have demonstrated consistently strong performance in previous jobs and demand higher compensation due to that expertise and reliability.

WorkGenius does not facilitate the full-time employment of our Geniuses — We admire their right to work independently.

The WorkGenius platform solely offers the services made possible by our community of freelancers.

Usually, there is no need to contact the Genius if your briefing is precise and detailed enough. If you have received a result but aren’t completely satisfied with it, use the feedback function in the course of the revision request.

The fastest Genius to accept the job can start working on it right away. You can also have the job done by another Genius if you have it saved as a template. Don’t forget to mention in your briefing that the job can only be done if it has not been done before.

The technology we use makes the use of other applications unnecessary. The only thing you have to do is create a detailed and informative briefing. Your job will then be matched to the right Genius.
