Clickworker is a global company that uses crowdsourcing to distribute micro tasks in fields such as writing, translating, data entry and research to more than 300,000 "clickworkers" worldwide. Clickworkers are independent contractors who use their own computing equipment and set their own schedules to work on small tasks, most of which are part of a large, complex project. The company's clients—which include Honda, T-Mobile, ShareWise and Tennis Point—contract with Clickworker for the completion of a large project.

The company then breaks the project into small tasks, which can be completed by many different freelance workers.

Pay and Benefits

Workers receive a fixed fee for each completed job. According to the company, fees "can range anywhere from a few cents to double-digit euro sums." The company pays in either euros or U.S. dollars.
