oDESK Developer Contractor

oDesk Developer Wiki

The oDesk API Center is where users can access webservices APIs to build their own oDesk applications. Creative companies and contractors can build apps, incorporate oDesk in their dashboards and integrate oDesk features with their websites or management systems.

What can companies do?

  • Build their own team room apps
  • Incorporate oDesk into their desktop dashboards
  • Integrate oDesk with their website or management systems
  • Create custom provider search views and display these views off-site

What can contractors do?

  • Create their own work diary apps to better support their buyers
  • Integrate their oDesk profile into their own website or in other places where they’d like to promote their services

Technical details (please check the API Center documentation for full details):

  • Any oDesk user can access the oDesk webservices APIs
  • In order to fully utilize the API developers need to create API keys
  • The API is a REST API. It’s easy to use and can be used in pretty much any development language



We will continuously release more APIs, update existing ones, and feature applications developed using the oDesk APIs.

If there is something that you would like to see and we do not yet offer, let us know in the feedback forums or drop us a line at apisupport@odesk.com.

There is also a community IRC channel #odesk running on freenode.net, so drop by and say hi:)
