If you have not used oDesk before, it is a marketplace to find contractors. You can obtain professionals on a per job basis or an hourly basis. You can obtain a new team member to augment the team or an entire team. You may want someone, or team of individuals, to create a new wireless application. You may want them to become part of your team and provide additional breadth to your team. Another popular use of oDesk is to deliver products or features faster, particularly if you use a team that is in a different time zone.
