Software Development Outsourcing - Top 5 Portals

Poster announcing employment opportunities
in business process outsourcing (BPO) operations in Bangalore. 
Outsourcing software development came a long way in the last decade. Before the turn of century this was a domain for larger companies that could afford a physical presence in the “source” countries. The emergence of outsourcing portals made it possible for small companies and individual developers (freelancers) to meet in a virtual and secure space. The pioneers in this market were Elance and Rent-a-Coder. For outsourcing software development Rent-a-Coder was by far the best choice, due do its reliable rating system for sellers and buyers and a good escrow and qualified arbitration service, which was specifically fine tuned for outsourcing software projects. Alas, they got acquired and absorbed by Freelancer.com in 2012. => So which portal is the best in 2014?
