Upwork (NASDAQ: UPWK), the world’s work marketplace, today announced that it has been named to G2’s Best Software Products for 2022 Awards, with placements on both the ‘Fastest Growing Products’ list and the ‘Global Sellers’ list.
Operating a software marketplace used by more than 60 million software buyers annually, G2 is the definitive online destination to discover, review, and manage the technology that businesses need to reach their potential. Its annual Best Software List ranks the world’s best software companies and products based on authentic, timely reviews from real users.
Upwork was recognized for the second year in a row, earning its place this year thanks to the company’s continued commitment to innovating both new work models and professionals’ career paths. Over the course of 2021, Upwork delivered new solutions including Project Catalog, Talent Scout, improvements to Enterprise Suite, and Virtual Talent Bench.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the Fastest Growing Products and a leading Global Seller by our customers,” said Eric Gilpin, senior vice president of sales at Upwork. “We work hard to deliver a product that affords businesses strategic benefits like growth, speed, and enterprise agility while granting talent more flexibility and control over their careers. Achieving this recognition in back-to-back years underscores the value we continue to create and the growing need for our platform as people explore new ways to work.”

We applaud those companies named to our 2022 list, as they’ve earned the satisfaction among their customers as well as an impressive market presence.”
The top 100 software sellers are ranked based on a combination of satisfaction and market presence scores for each seller, and the top 100 products are ranked based on reviews across all categories they are a part of. To be included in one of G2’s Software Sellers or Software Products “Best Of” lists, a software seller or product must receive at least 50 approved and published reviews during the 2021 calendar year.
